I crossed the border 12 years ago, got caught by the CBP and got a letter to see a judge hearing but I never went to the hearing.
Now I am married with a US citizen and decided to apply to change my status and found out my case never was submitted to a judge, it shows i passed at an immigration facility but checking my alien number shows I have no order of removal.
Now i will apply to my I-601 but I am wondering if my I-601 get aproved and I leave to my interview oversea and something about this court shows up there?
Is it really safe trust just on my alien number showing I have nothing under my name like an order of removal?
Is I have a order of removal will my I-601 get granted or they will find out my order and denny it ?
This is not a domestic violence question, but rather an immigration question dealing with a very specific aspect of immigration law. I have re-categorized the question so that you might get responses from immigration attorneys. Given the current political climate, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced immigration law attorney before proceeding.

You really need to talk to an immigration attorney! How did you "check your alien number" to find out you have no order of removal? An attorney could help you to request your entire file and review all the documents. You should definitely confirm what happened in the past before leaving the country, even if your waiver is granted -- you don't want to get stuck overseas! It can also be really helpful to have an attorney help you apply for a waiver. If you don't know where to start, you can attend a free consultation at Boston City Hall: http://www.masslegalservices.org/content/city-boston-immigration-clinic Good luck to you!

Hi. In order to get a complete set of information on your case, it's best to submit a FOIA (Freedom of information act_) request and get a copy of your entire file. Is that what you mean by having checked your alien number? That will let you know without a doubt if there was a removal order issued. Many times if there is a hearing and you don't attend it even though you had proper notice, a removal order will still be issued. The best way to know for sure is by submiting the FOIA.
Between the possible removal order and the possible new marriage, I think your best bet is to speak with an experienced immigration attorney in person who can review your case and help you prepare for your next steps.
