I entered the US in 1990. I returned to Mexico in 1995, and came back to the US after news of my pregnancy I entered the US using someone else's Alien Card given to me by a person who smuggled people into the states. I was caught by immigration, gave a different name and remained in jail for about a month. I was then seen by a judge telling me to not come back into the states. I signed a voluntary deportation, I was finger printed and was on my way. I then returned to the US immediately, without being caught again. My USC husband is in the process of adjusting my status. We have an approved I-130, and my case was forwarded to the NVC. I was wondering if my finger prints remain with immigration, or if they get rid of them after a certain time? Would I still be able to apply for the I-601A?
I don't think you will qualify for the I-601A. However, a definite answer is hard to reach over AVVO, because you are dealing with a long period of time and numerous entries into the United States. Your case is complicated, to say the least, and laws have changed over time.
My recommendation is not to send any further information or documents to USCIS until you consult with an immigration attorney, immediately. Several of us provide free initial consultation. Take advantage of that and get a thorough analysis of your case. I would not try to do this on your own.
