This was his second time in immigration court. The first was for possession of meth. He received cancellation of deportation. This time was voluntary deportation. He is currently on probation here in the USA. Even tho he is not here. His second time in immigration court was for possession of 2 vicodin pills. This is what sent him to be deported. Is there any waivers or something we can do to get him back into the USA? He was a LPR since 1989. He grew up here. All his family are citizens. We have been married three and a half years. Your assistance with this matter is greatly appreciated, Thank you for your time. Teri
It is important for you to see a lawyer because your description uses wrong terms, and terms are important. There is no such thing as cancellation of deportation, but rather there is cancellation of removal, or suspension of deportation. There is such thing as voluntary departure, and there is such thing as stipulated removal, or uncontested removal, but there is no such thing as voluntary deportation. Also the exact conviction records and sentence are extremely important to know in order to advise you what to do. Perhaps he will be eligible to visit the U.S. if he gets a waiver, but to immigrate, probably not for a very long time.
