hi there.. my name is maria from the philippines.. my father is an american citizen..he filled a pettition for me and my sister back in year 2000, and that pettition was granted..i stayed in california for almost 3 years my sister got her letter of removal i didt get mine..now she is an american citizen same as my dad..... i didnt had any chance to remove my conditional status..coz i didt got any letter or invitation from us immigration for the removal..when i was there i commit some misdemeanor cases like ,driving in the influence of drugs and recieving stolen properties..i still have those pending cases back there..and i decided to move back here in philippines to study and at the same time to get rid of those badthings happened to me back there.. i took up nursing course, i graduated,and pass the board exam here..now i am a registered nurse and all matured...i still want to go back in california ..but i dont have my visa anymore because that time i only have conditional status and my visa was only stamped in my passport and already expired.. 2 years ago my dad applied me for another pettition.. but i am afraid it might not get approve because of my pending case..i kept on checking my case status and it said there that i have 2 warrants because of not showing up to my court trials.. i am also planning to apply multiple visa ..do you think there's still a chance for me to work and live in USA? what should i do?.. i am willing to serve time in jail if needed..im all matured now and professional..i really want to go back there and work... pls answer my question... i will truly appreciate it.. thank you..

1. Hire a good immigration attorney in the U.S.

2. Don't waste your time and money applying for a multiple-entry visa.

3. Keep studying for the NCLEX-RN.
