Is there a chance for my friend to immigrate, if she was caught at the border trying to enter with a friends birth certificate, Her Grand mother was a born in the U.S. her father was a legal permanent Citizen, She has children born here, and she is afraid to return to her country due to the fact that her Ex Husband has threaten her Life.
There is a chance for your friend she should consult with an immigration attorney.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours. Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice. Please retain immigration counsel to analyze your particular situation in order to receive specific advice. Specific answers requires knowledge of all the pertinent facts of your case. Any answers offered by Mr. Smith on Avvo are of a general nature only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
Significantly more information is needed in order to provide an immigration legal analysis for your friend. That might include, for example, her age when she attempted to enter the U.S. with another person's birth certificate; whether there was a formal finding of fraud associated with her attempted entry; more details about your friend's immigration-related history; etc. There really is no substitute for your friend consulting with an immigration attorney about this.
