Your question was put onto the wrong list.

I will ask the site to move this to the US immigration law list.

I hope things work out.

in 2009 I CROOS THE BORDER WITH MY GREEN CARD AND I WAS LEAVING AND WORK IN CANADA AT THIS TIME A HAVE NO CHOICE I ABANDONED MY GREEN CARD NOW COULD I HAVE TO FIL OUT A RETURNING IMMIGRATION GRENN CARD OR I HAVE TO ASK FOR OTHER FORM I NEED TO RETURN IN US I NEED A GREEN CARD AGAIN
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

So the border officer found out you were actually living and working in Canada when you were supposed to be living and working in the US. So he forced you to abandon your green card?

How did you get your green card the first time?

I GET MY GREEN CARD IN 1996
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

I did not ask you when you got your green card. I asked you how you got your green card - marriage, employment, your brother, the lottery.

Also, please do not write in ALL CAPS. It is hard to read and it looks like you are shouting at me. And I have done nothing wrong for you to shout at me.

my brother is a citizen in usa
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Again, you are not answering my question. Please answer all of my questions.

How did you get the first green card? Through your brother who sponsored you?

Also, you never answered my original questions. You need to answer them all for me to be able to help you.

So the border officer found out you were actually living and working in Canada when you were supposed to be living and working in the US. So he forced you to abandon your green card?​

Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

When you tried to come in August, is that when the officer took your card away?

When was the last time you were in the US?

Ask Your Own Immigration Law Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no in 2009 at the border i abandonned my green card the last time was this week and i'm in the state each week because i have a brother leaving in the state of nH where are you located in state i could meet you
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Well when you tried to enter, did you try to enter as a visitor from Canada using your Canadian passport? And you were denied?

No, you cannot meet me. We are not allowed to met customers. But we can talk on the phone if you would like me to send you an offer. Although there is an extra fee, it might be easier.

Sir/Madam,

Please answer my questions. When you tried to enter, did you try to enter as a visitor from Canada using your Canadian passport? And you were denied?

I cannot take your case. But again, we can talk on the phone for an additional fee.
