My wife entered the US on a tourist visa with her parents when she was 10. They applied for political asylum, were denied, and were eventually given a final order of deportation. My wife has overstayed by more than a year and thus subject to a 10-year ban from reentering. In the meantime, she has worked, paid all her taxes, and has not otherwise been in trouble with the law. I am a US citizen.
My question is:
If she is deported, or if she leaves voluntary after having been issued a final order of deportation, is there any way she would be able to return before the 10-year period is over? What forms would we have to file, and how likely would success be?
