Denied I-130 (4) a brother under 245i & I-130 by daughter

Corona, NY |

at my asylum court hearing in 1997, the judge told me that if my diseased husband, a winner of DV 98 was not able to gain me a green card then I should go to my country. The dv98 was denied and I received a letter to leave US within a year. Is my situation considered immigration proceedings? If yes which box should I check on my I-130 application item 16?: Removal, Exclusion Deportation, Rescission, or Judicial Proceedings. My brother petitioned for me under 245i whiles I was in US with a priority date of April 30, 2001 I was scheduled for interview April 4, 2013 and was denied on bases of ineligibility under 212(a)(9)(B)(2) . As/embassy Accra my daughter could petition for me with a waiver of that ineligibility along with an I-212 waiver of the deportation order.

Your narrative is confusing. Where in the world are you located at this time? Are you in Ghana? If you need a waiver of inadmissibility pursuant to INA 212(a)(9)(B)(i)(II), then, as stated in INA 212(a)(9)(B)(v), you would need to show extreme hardship to your spouse or parent who is a US Citizen or lawful permanent resident. Do you have a spouse or parent who is a US Citizen or lawful permanent resident? If you do not, then you are not eligible to apply for a waiver under INA 212(a)(9)(B)(v).

I strongly suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney.

I agree. The hardship suffered by a US Citizen child does not count. Can you prove that you were out of the U. S. for more than ten years? If not, then the effort may prove futile ( e.g. Not worth the effort).

I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.
