    Default Getting a visa after a criminal conviction

    I was convicted of a felony (embezzlement) in 1993, i did not go to jail, I had probation for 4 years. In ca. 1996 a new law was made, all (permanend resident) aliens with a felony record were to be deportet. I received a letter with a date for a deportation hearing. I went to see a lawyer - he said the best thing to do is take my daughter and move back to Germany. Because if I went to the hearing they would most likely deport me right then - without my daughter. So I moved back to my country (Germany) with my daughter. I was a lawfully admited resident alien with a greencard, this status was of course removed. I am now married to a German engineer working for BMW. My husband might have to go to the States for two years for his company, and I would like to go with him. I do not intent to work, I just want a nonimmigrant visa. I have a 12 year old daughter, she is a US citicen, and a 2 year old daughter with my present husband.

    How can I find out if I will be able to go with my husband, or if I can ever visit the states on vacation for a couple of weeks ?

    Default Gaining Immigration Status

    Before trying to visit the U.S., you should check with the U.S. Embassy or Consulate to see if you would be turned back at the border. You may wish to consult an immigration lawyer.
