I first applied for a residence through my parents, then missed a fingerprint appt and was denied. Many years later I received letter that said they placed me under removal procedures . I had married my U.S citizen husband 3 months before receiving this letter. I applied again, received my green card but my previous case is still pending in court. The hearing date isn't until 2014. I am a permanent resident now and will like to know what is going to happen with the case in court does it automatically end since immigrations granted me a green card? Can I travel?
I would have to agree with my colleague. If you let it be and do not appear in Court on a set date, they will remove you in absentia - without your presence. But to be honest with you, all of it sounds a little weird as CIS should have known about your removal proceedings. I would consult with an experienced attorney and definitely do a motion to terminate.
