Deniz Sevim Arik

Case Conclusion Date:June 3, 2011

Practice Area:Immigration

Outcome:Petition for Review dismissed/denied

Description:An approved Form I-130 Petition for Alien Relative does not confer admission status on a non-citizen foreign national for purposes of showing seven years of continuous residence under section 240A(a)(2) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. An approved Form I-130 petition merely provides a non-citizen foreign national - one who entered without inspection or authorization and has not otherwise been admitted- permission to apply for adjustment of status.
