My husband has been deported. Voluntary deportation.

Asked 12 months ago - Orange, CA

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

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.
