Re-entering the US after leaving voluntarily

I came to the US as a minor (7 yrs old) under my mother's passport. Circumstances have aloud for my mother to have permanent residence & then a Citizenship but I stayed without legal status. At 23 yrs old after several failed attempts I decided to leave and obtained permanent residence in Canada. I lived 5 yrs in the US after the age of 18. I would like to go back to visit my family & friends that still live in the US.

How can I go about re-entering the US? How long will it take? What is the best strategy in my case?

Thank you for any help or guidance

PS: I never received any notice of deportation from immigration. I left voluntarily.

Sounds like you need to apply for a visitor's visa, but I'm not so sure.

Yes what is your country of origin Canadian? Do you have any passport at all? Seems like kind of an odd situation, but an immigration attorney might be able to help you out. Not an immigration specialist, but this is probably the best thing to get you started http://www.legalmatch.com/law-librar...ntry-visa.html . good luck.
