Immigration Issues/immigration/perdon letter


My husband has been deported now for 3 yrs. I was told we can do a perdon letter so we can get his green card back or start the paperwork. Can you help me or tell me how I do a perdon letter and if the info. I was told is right?

Dear Joyce:
To advise I would need some details as to why, how, and when was your husband deported? Without these details - I think - no one can properly advise or assist you.  

However, as per info provided, the 3 year bar is for over stay of visa with six to 12 months of unlawful presence in the United States.  If your husband accrued 3 year bar and it is 3 years or more form the date he was deported he must apply for an I-601 waiver at the concerned consulate based on extreme hardship to qualifying relative (US citizen (USC) or Permanent resident (LPR) spouse or parent.  Please, note - A child is not considered a “qualifying relative” for purposes of evaluating the waiver or extreme hardship.

Please see:

Processing of an I-601 waiver involves legal complications, therefore, you are advised to seek proper legal consultation and assistance.  You are advised to speak to an experienced immigration attorney in your area or you may contact our offices via phone, postal mail, or email and we will be more than happy to assist you.  

Best wishes,
Ajay Singh, Esq.
