Hello I am Colombian, I was a minor(8 years old) when we moved to the states. My parents after years in the US applied for political asylum and was denied they appealed and it was denied again so eventually we would receive a voluntary date to leave the country but before we received it we just left in June 2006 they didnt inform anyone, they thought by leaving through the airport everything would be fine and obviously it wasnt and because of this received the 10 years bar. I am now living in Canada and I became a Canadian citizen this June 2015. My question is what happens after the 10 years?? It will be next year June 2016 and I am Canadian can i go back to states as a tourist? Will that punishment be removed from my file or will I always have issues everytime I would like to visit?
Presumably you are referring to a ten year bar as a self deport, or perhaps for unlawful presence, but that would be a different discussion. After the bar for prior deportation and for unlawful presence is over, you will no longer be barred from admission, at least not for those reasons.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
If you were less than 18-1/2 when you left the US, you don't have the 10 year bar.
But, you may need to get the court files 'cleared up' to document this.
Consult with an attorney, many of us use Skype.
