I lived in the US from the time I was 6 years old. I got involved with the wrong crowd and 5 days after my 18th birthday I did a carjacking. I was convicted for this and served 3 years in a max security prison. Because I was not a citizen deportation proceedings began. After doing 3 years all I wanted was to be free and I didn't fight the deportation proceedings. I was deported back to Belgium with no possibility of re-entry.
In the meantime I have completely changed my life. I became an RN, got married and have wonderful friends and family. I take complete responsibility for what I did and who I was back then and do not expect to be let back into the US to live and I wouldn't want to. What I would love is that all of this could be erased from my record and that if I want to take a vacation to the US that I am able to. I am not a violent criminal. I was young and dumb but have changed my life.
I work for an American company and if I were to get promoted that would include travel and I would have to decline the promotion.
What can I do to change this? How much will it cost? and what are the chances of being succesfull?
