I have adjusted my status under 245i,my husband who is a qualifying derivative beneficiary EWI when he was 17 in july 2000, prior to succesfully entering him and his family attempted for a whole week to enter but were caught at the border all 7 times. My husband said border officials didnt make them sign anything or asked them any questions besides the usual name,dob,nationality and only took fingerprints and sent them on their way to Tijuana.Im really confused as to if this sounds like an expedited removal because from my understanding he wouldnt be able to adjust if that was the case.He has no criminal records and has never left.
I agree with both answers, you first need to know what happened at the border. A FOIA request is a necessity, but you must also request the information from CBP in case he was interviewed at the border.
You will most likely need waivers and consular processing, for which an experience immigration attorney is a necessity.
