My attorney keeps telling me that I do not have a 3 or 10 year bar. I entered the US in Feb of 1996. So I was in unlawful status for the duration after the 6 months allowed. I also qualify for adjustment of status under 245 (I). Can I use this together with my DV lottery selection to be able to adjust my status. I am so confused about this voluntary departure. Everything I read tells me there is a bar and My lawyer says there is none. Please advise.
