Case Conclusion Date: 08.01.2012
Practice Area: Immigration
Outcome: Deportation Proceedings terminated and client obtained Permanent Residence
Description: Client's Adjustment of Status and Waiver for fraud in entering the country was denied prior to my taking the case. Client subsequently ordered deported based upon denial of fraud waiver and overstay. I won the appeal to the Board because qualifying hardship was to a different family member with different adverse circumstance in her life than client's first wife. I filed a second I-130 spouse petition, USCIS denied it. USCIS suddenly changed its mind after reading the appeal and approved the petition. Client then filed a second fraud waiver in Immigration Court based on marriage to his second U.S. Citizen wife. Waiver and Adjustment of Status approved by Immigration Judge approximately 5 years after client's initial denial.
