If someone has been a permanent resident and was convicted of a felony in 2002 for assault and possession of uncontrolled substance and his residency is expiring in 6 months, what options does he have to avoid deportation? Can he re -apply for residency?/Citizenship? Marry a citizen? to stay in the States?
This type of situation always deserves a full consultation with all facts and circumstances fully considered before moving forward. The two offenses mentioned could potentially lead to removal proceedings. Thats why you must speak to a candid immigration attorney before a decision. Good luck.
