How likely is it I can cross the border to visit my husband?

Asked about 1 year ago - Great Barrington, MA

First time I applied for green card, I left the US and self deported by accident. Reapplied while in Canada in August. Technically, I shouldn't be allowed in the country until I get the green card, but I was allowed to cross in September, for a business convention. No one questioned me, or said I was flagged or anything. They never even asked for proof. They just scanned my passport and let me go. If I try to cross to visit my husband and family this summer, how likely is it that I'll end up being allowed to cross considering I was allowed already?

    Answered . What your husband needs to do is sit down with a local immigration lawyer to explain him the process and make sure no mistakes by either you or him are made, which could substantially delay the process and keep you apart even longer.
