Not a question that can be answered with these facts. I would need to review the criminal record and inquire on who the petitioner is, your immigration history, other criminal convictions, whether you entered the U.S. legally or illegally, did you overstay? You may set up a paid consultation if you want to get advice on your case specifically.

The answer depends upon whether they have already been deported or are in deportation/removal proceedings. The individual has the right to a hearing regarding his or her removal from the United States. As for whether they could return after deportation or removal, depends upon the specific language of the criminal charges they were convicted under and what immigration charges were sustained in their deportation/removal proceedings. If the person was found to be an aggravated felon for immigration purposes then it is highly unlikely they will be able to return.

The question is impossible to answer without more information. Generally, indecent liberties with a child might be considered an aggravated felony and would be considered a crime involving moral turpitude. As a crime involving moral turpitude, it would render an individual ineligible for entry to the United States or permanent residence. However, if the person has a parent, child or spouse who is a United States Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident, there may be a waiver available for the offense. To get the waiver, the individual would have to demonstrate extreme hardship to the parent child or spouse. If the person was previously a permanent resident, a waiver may not be available. This is complicated and dependent on the specifics of the individual case. For more information, please contact our office for a consultation with one of our attorneys. We look forward to assisting you.
