2006 I was deported. I find out here I was adopted (secret my entire family kept) My adoptive mom became a citizen when I was 8 yrs old. I was legally in the USA at this time as a legal resident (green card) My mom adopted me alone meaning she wasn't married at the time of the adoption. Is this a case worth fighting for? It gets better... but I would like to discuss this with an attorney that specializes in these type of cases, since I am here (in this country) for trusting a lawyer that wasn't all up to par about this case.
IT does sound like you are a citizen (assuming you lived with your adoptive mother for at least two years and the adoption was valid). Proofs will be important and necessary. You ask if it's worth fighting for...of course it is. It is US citizenship. If you are looking for the right lawyer you need to call or contact directly to find one familiar with your issues who you trust (and can afford).
I agree with Mr. Berman, you should apply for a U.S. passport and get an attorney to reopen the removal proceedings. If you are a U.S. citizen you should have never been removed. Contact an immigration attorney in your area.
