Can I file a VAWA self-petition if I was deported because I failed to appear at the hearing? I do not have a U.S. citizen, lawful permanent resident, or qualified parent or child in the United States.
"NO" is the answer to this one. You don't file VAWA" if you already had LPR status and it ultimately ended up being revoked.
You had your chance to re-file/re-submit the I-751 with a Waiver, before the immigration judge - but, that was you only chance and unfortunately you didn't take advantage of it, for unknown reasons. Post-deportation, you have to start from scratch, find a new husband and come in with a Waiver.
