Case Conclusion Date: December 12, 2011
Practice Area: Immigration
Outcome: Client is a Legal Permanent Resident via Non LPR Cancellation of Removal
Description: Our Mexican client came to the US in 1996. He came illegally by crossing the Mexican border in Arizona. He was picked up by ICE when he was doing a roofing job in 2008 and spent a few weeks at the Krome Detention Center in Miami, FL. His US citizen wife contacted our office and we were able to get him out on bond, to file a Non-LPR Cancellation on his behalf, and to finally obtain lawful status for him. It was not easy because he had a minor criminal offense in the county of Miami-Dade in FL. We had to prove that his marriage was for real; that he was physically present in the US for more than 10 years; that he was a person of good moral character; and that his deportation to Mexico would create and exceptional and extreme unusual hardship to his US citizen wife.
