I have a friend whos mother was deported 2 years ago. She has 4 children that are citizens and reside here in the US. Two are in high school and 2 are in elementary. The father is a citizen and is still with them. Is it possible for her to apply for citizenship even though she has been deported.
Before she can apply for citizenship she first must become a lawful permanent resident. Before that can happen her husband will have to file an immigrant visa for her, and then she will have to request the U.S. government's permission to reenter the United States following her deportation. She has a long road to go, and this family should retain immigration counsel for help.
