I-601 A Waiver approved but visa in my home country denied

Hi. I'm in process for I-601 a waiver. My husband is US citizen and I came here illegally 14 years ago. We are married for 13 years. We have 2 kids. I don't have criminal record But I don't have any proof how I came in this country , because I ripped that passport and put into the garbage. At that time I thought it's best that I do that because it was probably stolen passport and I was scared. That's how it is when you coming in new country.

Now my Lawer recommend me that I stop with this waiver because he thinks that at my country they will denied my visa and I will stuck there. I don't know what to do

At beginning he told me different story

Does anybody have similar story like me ?

Thanks

Why does he think you will be denied?

Usual problem is that you have issues that can not be dealt with by an I 601a

He just told me yesterday because,i don't have that passport how I enter in U.S.

The passport was probably false. I can't remember

The reason is that proof how I enter in US

On the beginning he told it doesn't matter as long as I don't have criminal record and I'm married with US citizen for more than 10 years and I have 2 kids

If you were inspected on entry then you could adjust in county with a I 601.

There is no 10 year or children requirement, well 10 years for COR but that route is unusual.

I was inspected but I can't remember name on the passport that I used.

It was 14 years ago

I remember while I was in the plane I was scared to look in that passport (you know you are doing something illegal)

Now I don't know ,what's the problem

Why my Lawer is saying this because he already knew everything from the beginning

Probably thinks you will be hit with misrep and need a I 601.

Well the other question is if it was a passport issued by your home country or was it a US issued passport? That would change the conversation completely.

If its not a US PP its not too bas, If you can get that name in PP used

from whomever U got it you could do a FOIA with CBP and adjust here

if not you will go back to your country to consular interview & mail waiver

the day after to NEB. have the waiver ready B4 leaving & that could be 6-9 mths
