Hello , I am so sorry that I didn't see your reply and didn't rate you. But thank you very much for your reply.
And thank you for the contact website for a lawyer.
I URGENTLY need to know if I WAS DEPORTED FROM MEXICO.
I am applying for a visa and it asks if I was ever deported from Mexico.
At the Immigration center on the 16th of December when I applied for a permit to leave and enter the country they stated the following. They said I lost my process to change from temporary resident to permanent resident and the following....
se le otorga un plazo maximo de VEINTE DIAS naturales, contados a partir de la fecha de que reciba el presente oficio, para que amparo el mismo, adandone mexico, sin que las autoridades migratorias le soliciten documentation migratoria alguna, cumpliendo unicamente con los requisitos de estadistica e identificacion, apercibiendole que de no cumplir con este ordenamiento se hara acreedora a las sanciones que establece la Ley de Migracion, lo anterior con fundamento en lo previsto en los articulos....
I had to sign this paper.
Also on the 30th of dec at the airport, so that I could leave the country they made me sign a document which identifies me and then says
"comparezco en forma voluntaria y manifesto bajo protesta de deicr verdad, qu conozco las penas que sancionan el dar falso testimonio a una utoridad y apercibido de las mismas , expongo que : llegue a mexico .....
Actualmente me encuentro irregular en territorio mexicano, ya que no cuenta con documentacion migratoria que acredite mi legal estancia en Mexico.
Aclaro que no tengo ningun impedimento para salir de territorio mexicano , y durante mi estancia no trasgredi ningun ordenamiento lega, ni cometi delito alguno que me impida salir libremente de Mexico. Por ello solicito autorice mi salida en el vuelo ......
I had to sign the paper in order to leave, the immigration office gave me no choice and I had to fill out and hand in a tourist card. The is no 'manager' there to talk to, a long line of people and the chance of missing my flight.
One factor for me was that my NZ passport was expiring in about two weeks.
I had actually been issued a permit to leave and enter the country for the trip when I came back in as it seemed things were still in process for me , I did not know any differently. It may be that my lawyer at the time did, but I didn't.
But what I really need to know is if this means I WAS DEPORTED AND HOW I RESPOND TO THE VISA QUESTION , I NEVER WANT TO LIE ON AN APPLICATION.
I now have to go back to Mexico - i have three dogs there , my house and many investments and obligations, I have a Mexican company, I have Mexican employees. This is such a nightmare.
