    Answered . Actually, it is a repeat question. This is not a general question you ask. You are clearly in need of a legal advice. No problem, but not on AVVO. AVVO is a free general legal information blog, not a substitute for legal advice. Look for an attorney you would like to have a consultation with. You can use Find a Lawyer tab above, right here in AVVO. Select an attorney, contact them directly and schedule a consultation. You might be glad you did.

    The number of children you have and the years of being 'good' don't overcome the lifetime bar you incurred by returning to the US without permission.

    Talk to an attorney in private ... be honest ... perhaps he can find a way to challenge your original deportation.
