Based on the information in your posting, it appears that you are subject to the 10-year bar, because you overstayed your authorized time in the US while remaining in the US after your divorce, apparently without becoming a lawful permanent resident, and then you departed the United States. If you have spent 10 years outside the United States since you left, then you may apply for a visa. Best wishes.See question
My minor children are still in the philippines and I want to see them. Im staying with my US citizen son in the US now for just a month and i dont have a job.
LPRs may travel outside the United States. Upon return, as long as you don't have any issues of inadmissibility (convicted of certain crimes, or other issues of inadmissibility), then you will be admitted to the US as a returning LPR. You should keep each trip outside the United States to less than 6 months, and you should be spending at least half of your time in the United States, in order to preserve your ability to apply for naturalization.

The answer to your question depends on the reasons why you received an order of removal in 2009. Depending on your situation, it might be possible to seek a motion to reopen your case, to try to address the removal order that you received. But the only way to determine what could be done in your case is for you to consult directly with an experienced immigration attorney, who would go over all of your history in detail, to try to figure out how best to try to help you.

I am an F-1 visaholder (soon to apply for OPT) and want to have my soon-to-be husband (who is a permanent resident) petition for an immigrant visa number on my behalf by filing an i-130 form (so that I can apply for Adjustment of Status). Would fi...
There are concerns that if you travel and then return to the US while the I-130 is pending, you could encounter problems upon your return at the border or airport. It is possible that US immigration officials could conclude that you intend to remain in the US as an immigrant. They could deny you entry because you would be presenting your student visa, which is a non-immigrant visa. I suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney to explore an approach that could avoid problems. Best wishes.See question

The tourist visa that you have, as well as the student visa that you are seeking, are both non-immigrant visas. In order to be eligible for those visas, you must have the intent NOT to "immigrate" to the United States. In other words, you must have the intent to enter the United States for the purpose of the visa ... either for tourism or visits with the tourist visa, or for your enrollment in school with the student visa. If immigration officials believe that you actually have the intention of "immigrating," remaining permanently in the United States, then they could deny your student visa, and they could also revoke your tourist visa. There are also many other reasons that US immigration officials could possibly deny your visa application. Best wishes.See question
