Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered
Q. I would like to know , how long its takes to come back in the us after being deported? thanks.
A: It depends on the reason for deportation. Different crimes or reasons for removal will subject the deportee to different time periods they must remain outside the country. Some drug convictions, for example, may mean that the deportee may never be permitted to return to the US. Other crimes may invoke a twenty year bar or a ten year bar depending on the reason for deportation.
Q. My husband has been here illigaly for over 20 years and works every day I am a US citizen how do I help him
A: It depends how he came to the United States. You can sponsor your husband if he either came with a visa, or if he had filed (or someone filed on his behalf) a petition prior to April 30, 2001. Otherwise, you should discusss the case with a qualified immigration lawyer to see any other options he may have. You can contact our office at 914-358-5200.
Q. I'm married permanent resident for 4 years now. Is my brother (not married) eligible for family unity program?
A: In order to sponsor your brother you would need to be a US citizen. Sponsorship of a sibling takes many many years; in some cases 12 to 15 years.
