  • Pardon for agravated felony

    Helllo,
    I grew up in the U.S. and even served in the United states marine corps. I was jailed for 5 years for a drug charge in 1999, since I never became a citizen I was deported to my home country Colombia I have been an upstanding citizen since then here in my country My daughter, mother, brothers and sister all live in the states.

    Is there any type of way that my family can help me get some type of pardon or waiver? I have been in my country for 9 years now. Don t know if that 10 year ban applies to me.

    Or Am I completely banned from entering the U.S. again?

    Awaiting your response.

    Regards,

    You don't mention your state, but pardons are rare in drug cases. As a Marine, you should know that getting that drug offense really diminished your standing as an honorable member of our country, and that may well prevent you from being eligible for a pardon.

    As far as a waiver is concerned, that's not an option unless you qualify for a hardship waiver. You have managed to live away from your family for 9 years now, so being away from them hasn't been that much of a hardship to you. Only in cases of extreme hardship will a waiver be issued - and you haven't indicated any reason for USCIS to issue one over the burden you carry from your drug felonies you committed while living in the US before.

    I would suggest that you have your family come to Colombia to visit you instead.

      Even with unconditional pardons, if you've still got the ten year ban, you would still need a waiver of that (or wait out) before they'll even consider whether they would want to issue any sort of visa to a felon. Your only hope is to find a good immigration lawyer, because it's going to be a tough road.
