Hello, my ex-husband is American and so is one of my 2 daughters. I had a green card but after the divorce, my family talked me into moving back to Germany since my ex-husband was more worried about spending time with his new wife. I always planned on going back to the US but at a visit at the US embassy in Frankfurt, was told that I had to sign form i-407 even if I planned on going back and was just here temporarily since I could not afford the plane tickets at the current time and wasn't sure when I was able to fly back. Well, it is now 3 years later and I am aware that once signed, there is nothing I can do. I have been applying both for the green card lottery and jobs in hopes of securing a visa. My ex-husband would really like to have the kids back in the country so he can spend time with them and I always considered it my home and hate living in Germany. Are there any routes that I am unaware of that I have not explored yet? I was told by the embassy if I were to travel to the US currently and my ex-husband would then go to a lawyer he could bar our daughter from leaving the country again, where would that leave me and my non-US citizen daughter? Would we be able to go through the German embassy to temporarily be able to stay while legal disputes were being dealt with? Anyone any ideas?
