  1. Your partner needs a lawyer. He may have been eligible for prosecutorial discretion, if he notified the government about his domestic partner.

    The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.


  2. There is a 30-day window to appeal the Immigration Judge's decision to the Board of Immigration Appeals.
