    Answered . You cannot simply file a motion to reopen 9 years after being ordered deported. Better consult with an experienced immigration attorney before you get yourself deported.

    Answered . If you have an outstanding order of removal (deportation) you will not be able to simply file for adjustment of status. Meet with an attorney to determine whether your case is currently on appeal or can otherwise be reopened

    Answered . You can only request reopening of your case on a joint motion unless it is an in absentia order and you recently found out about your order. You better consult with a lawyer for a review of your case.
