Also, all in all it does feel like that the very grey nature of what I'm asking will draw some scrutiny if I try to visit via VWP - At least if I put in the time and effort of doing a visa application, after 10 years, I might have some confidence. But I do understand that after all that I could still be turned away

I put an application together recently just to see what was on there. Listing every country I've been to?? I should have never gone backpacking...

I am willing to consult and pay for a lawyer - But only if they can give me definitive answers. I haven't really seen situations similar to mine discussed online, which kind of makes me question 1) how many people like me there are 2) whether the immigration lawyer has dealt with my situation. Perhaps I'm being naive or unfair, but I think its a fair concern. I don't know if this is allowed, but I will be happy to follow up any recommendations

You want to visit the US.

You are not eligible to use the VWP.

You need to apply for a B2.

How is a lawyer going to make money out of specialising in that?

Can a lawyer help you fill in the forms, well I guess so but they are not that difficult.

Can a lawyer help you at the Consulate, I have never heard of a Lawyer attending a Consulate interview as as it seems to be a done deal beforehand anyway not sure what the point would be.

As far as people in your situation, must be hundreds of thousands, you have a better chance than many in getting a visitor visa as you are not from south of the border.
