hello there i have a question or a concern, a cousin of mine obtained his gc back in 1986 and back in 2010 he got pulled over by a cop back in florida, he then was taken to ice and was told that he either can do a self voluntary depart the us or fight to stay, he didn't have any money to hire an attorney and so he chose do voluntary depart. so now he wants to come back to the U.s..

can some one help and give me any feedback about what can he do to get his status back on track.

thank you!

There is more to this. Someone who has a greencard does not get deported simply for being pulled over for speeding or even a DUI.

- Did he have a valid greencard at the time he was pulled over? If not, why not?

- What were the charges when he was pulled over? For example if he had fellony warrants out for him or drugs in the car, that would explain it.

- Is there anything written in his passport or does he have any papers he signed during the deportation hearing, and if so, what does it say?

How does he intend to come back? Ie doe she have a US citizen spouse or...?

With a drug conviction, he may have a lifetime ban.

Who is planning to petition for him?

well the judge didn't tell him he was going to get ban for life he just said for him to volunteer depart and so he turned in his green card to USCIS.

no one is trying to petition for him, he just wants to know what he can do to recover his lpr card.

He can't recover his card, it is gone.

He would need someone to petition for him, be that an employer or a spouse or parent etc. Then, a waiver would need to be filed. What sort of waiver would depend on what exactly was agreed on at his deportation hearing/ what sort of ban he has.
