Case Conclusion Date: 06.03.2011
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.
