Case Conclusion Date:September 30, 2010

Practice Area:Immigration

Outcome:Green Card Approved

Description:CASE: I-130 / I-485 POTENTIAL ISSUES PRE-RETENTION: Immigrant Intent APPLICANT / BENEFICIARY: Canadian LOCATION: Dallas Texas Our client last entered the United States on January 23, 2010. She had been going back and forth from Canada to the U.S. to visit her boyfriend. She had no intention to marry her husband preceding her last entry but a few weeks after her last entry, her husband proposed to her and they got married. It is important to show that there was no immigrant intent on your last entry and in this case, there was none. The officer may have doubts though due to the closeness of the marriage date to the date of entry. Our firm was retained to process the paperwork and prepare the couple for the interview. The I-130 and I-485 was filed on June 28, 2010. The receipt notices and fingerprint appointments were issued immediately and on August 31, 2010, our client received her work permit. Interview notices were issued on August 13, 2010 and our office prepared them prior to the interview. On September 20, 2010, they went to their interview in Dallas and the officer right after informed them that their case was to be approved. The CIS officially issued the I-485 approval on September 22, 2010.
