He already has someone (his step father who is a resident) petitioning for him. He is 30 years old, has a HS diploma/ been in and out of college, has been living in the US since he was 8/9 years old. He has a deportation since he tried re-entering the US in 2007 and was caught. It is a 5 year deportation, he re-entered the US anyway and has been living here ever since. Because he is in the process of getting his step father to petition for him, his lawyer said it would be at least ten years that he will be deported because he has not served his 5 years and has not asked permission from the attorney general.
