    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Since you have a 10 year ban you will need to request a waiver of inadmissibility to be granted an immigrant visa to enter the US to be with your family. You and your family should consult with an immigration lawyer to see if your particular circumstances would qualify you for a waiver and if there is even a waiver available for the reason your are banned from the US. The requirement for the waiver is a very difficult one to meet and you need to be prepared that is will be an uphill battle to get a visa.

    Answered . Were you ordered removed at or near the border by CBP? Were you ordered in absentia by an immigration judge before the immigration court? If you failed to attend a hearing without justifiable cause, you will be subject to an unwaivable inadmissibility bar of five years.

    More information is needed as to establish when you will become eligible for a waiver.

    You should consult with a competent attorney or BIA accredited representative.
