Any advice will be much appreciated. I have been a green card holder for the past 10 years. Before I got my GC I was on a F2 visa for 10 years. My GC expires in March 2018. I have 3 misdemeanors on my record, one of them is a M4- Unauthorized use. Upon traveling recently I was given a form NTA and my green card was taken. The papers mentions that I am a GC holder for 10 years and also says "Alien". I am married to a U.S citizen and have 3 minor u.s citizen children (by birth).
I did meet with a immigration attorney to discuss my options. With my own research on Immi. law, I thought I would be eligible for the extreme hardship waiver or 212(h) waiver or the 7 year waiver.. Or any other waiver. Please let me know if I would fall within the guidelines for a waiver.
The immigration attorney said I might not qualify for the above waivers, as I was listed as a "Alien". Any truth to that? He also said, there might be a chance I might qualify for some type of waiver. He would check on it.Also the attorney said, I will have to build a asylum case if there is no waiver. I couldn't understand that part, because of my marriage to a u.S citizen and kids.
while on removal proceedings can I still renew my GC that is expiring in March 2018?
Is foreign travel risky or not permitted while on removal hearing?
I have traveled extensively previously with the 3 misdemeanors on my record. I was wondering if immigration law has changed recently.
Thank you in advance for your advice.
