Hi there, the lawyer that helped my step dad (usa citizen) with my green card petition found this (lawyer said part) when he requested a FOIA on me before continuing my green card petition at the time under the child protection act. The petition was filed while I was a minor and adjustment of status was underway in the USA (2002). We also moved out of the USA later in 2006 so my adjustment of status stayed pending (I was on K4 visa at the time) until 2012 when I obtained the green card by changing my petition to consular processing, after the lawyer found that my petition in 2002 was still active and pending. WHAT LAWYER SAID: [Interestingly enough, 'my name' was placed into removal proceedings with a notice to appear (the charging document) was issued in 10/23/2002. These removal proceedings were subsequently terminated on motion of the U.S. government on 2/19/2010. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think these were began and terminated while 'my name' was outside of the country (you moved in fall of 02).] END So how do I answer question 35? I'm guessing I answer 'Yes' and then what should I put in additional information? Also this won't be a problem right? Thank you!
In all such situations, what I order my office staff to do is type in: "See A#......" and let CIS break their heads, do their job and figure it out. That's what my own immigration lawyer thought me, very long time ago and exactly how I've been dealing with those - instead of typing in needless "long explanations" - to date, after 25 years of what I think was a successful practice - I have never been challenged or RFE'd once on this issue. Up to you (and your lawyer) how you want to address with this.
