I have a complicated case. I was detained 6yrs ago for overstayed my visa. I got married to my boyfriend after Which was already a red flag. He petitioned for me but my 130 was denied on basis of suspected marriage fraud. Fast forward things didn't work out and we divorced. I met and married my second husband and even before he could petition I left,he was abusive and I had to get a restraining order. My attorney applied for VAWA which was denied based on the fraud on first marriage I appealed to AAO and BOA to fight the 204 c. I just got denial from AAO saying I was not of a good moral character and stated even my second marriage was fraud. I already know my BOA appeal will be denied. I don't what to do. I had enough evidence for both cases but I don't if I can fight anymore.
It does not sound very hopeful, but whether to continue the flight is a personal decision.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
This is a personal decision, which I'm sure will be based on the probability of success in your case. If I were you, I would obtain a copy of my file and seek a second, third, and fourth opinion of the matter. I would listen carefully to those opinions and make an informed decision from there. Good luck!
Please excuse any typos...... Although Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, some attorneys prefer to add their own disclaimers to answers. You can set your custom disclaimer here and it will be automatically added to your answers. Do NOT include any direct solicitations or contact information.
As the other lawyers have pointed out, whether to continue pursuing your case until you get a favorable outcome is a decision only you can make. As lawyers we provide options and make suggestions, but the final decision is yours. You should make several appointments to meet with a few other immigration lawyers and have them review your case. At that time, after you have reviewed everything each one had to say, you will be able to decide whether you want to continue to fight. Good luck.
