Green card approved without an interview

green card approved without an interview
This week, one of our clients got his green card approved. It was a long waiting period of over two years to get his green card approved. However, when his application was finally reviewed, he was approved without conducting an interview. Our firm made sure that his application was strong on paper which resulted in approval of his green card. Getting an approval of a green card without an interview is one of the best results we can achieve as an immigration firm. Congratulations to our client!

Green card Approved at US Embassy in Spain

 Green card Approved at US Embassy in SpainOur client’s immigrant visa (green card) application approved at US Embassy in Spain, and bonus? The client was able to travel to the US while he was waiting for the final approval. The US citizen spouse needed to return to the US before our client was able to get an immigrant visa, aka as a “green card.” We represented the couple as they were separated for over a year and half, during COVID, waiting for his immigrant visa to process through USCIS, the National Visa Center, and the US Embassy in Europe. Many months into the National Visa Center process, the client wanted to travel to the United States to see his US citizen daughter graduate from high school. Our team prepared a strong package for our client to show to US Customs and Immigration, proving that while he wanted to move to the US with a “green card,” at that time, he just wanted to enter the US for a few days to see his daughter graduate. His quick trip was a success, and a few short months later, he had his Embassy interview and his immigrant visa approved. He wrapped up his life in Europe and moved to the US to start a new life with his wife and children.

US Citizenship after arrest for solicitation

citizenship after arrestA client was arrested for soliciting a prostitute when he was caught in a sting at a local massage parlor. He successfully defeated the criminal case against him by winning “pre-trial” probation and completing probation without any problems. This meant that he had no criminal conviction. However, all criminal issues must be disclosed on US naturalization applications, and even dismissed cases can cause someone to be denied US naturalization. Here, the client waited until 5 years passed after finishing probation and then wanted to apply for citizenship. He was statutorily eligible, meaning there was no reason that USCIS had to deny his case. On the other hand, there was no reason that USCIS was required to approve his case. He had to prove that despite participating in activity that got him arrested, that he was a good person who deserved to become a US citizen. Our team prepared an excellent application that explained that this man was not defined by one error, was an upstanding member of his community, and deserved the privilege of becoming a US citizen. He was approved on the spot at the interview and sworn in as a US citizen on the same day as the interview.

45 Minute Approval

This week our client won a non-Legal Permanent Resident cancellation of removal.  Our client is an exemplary community member who is loved and respected by his community and friends.  Unfortunately, like many other people in this country, our client did not have legal status.  He was facing possible removal from the country.  If our client was ordered to leave the country, his young US citizen son and his wife’s lives would be ruined.  Our attorney presented such a strong case that the court approved the case in under 45 minutes.  We cannot be happier for our client and that he is allowed to remain in this country and continue to make our community better!

From Asylum to Happy Marriage-Based Green Card

Marriage-based green card

After 8 years and with our help, our client obtained a marriage-based green card. He is finally a Lawful Permanent Resident of the United States! Our team first started working with a wonderful, young gay man from a country where he was persecuted. Eight years ago, we filed for asylum for him–right at the time when the asylum system started to drastically slow down from about a 1-2 year timeframe to the current 5 to 8 year processing time. As our client waited for a decision on his asylum case, he built a life in the US, graduating, working, and falling in love with a US citizen.

Our client married his husband almost three years ago, and we filed a marriage-based green card application for him. Due to a very minor criminal issue, his green-card application was delayed more than a year. Today, our team opened the mail and received the wonderful notice that the marriage-based green card was finally approved. Congratulations to our client and his husband!

Expedited Travel Document and Green Card in One Visit

Expedited Travel Document and Green Card in One Visit

Recently, we were able to help one of our clients to get approval on her green card and expedited travel documents. She got a change to visit their very ill mother in India. Our client was waiting on a pending green card application and urgently needed to leave the country. She wanted to see her ill mother and to take care of her. Our attorney was able to get her an appointment to request to expedite her application for a travel document at USCIS. The appointment went so well that not only did our client leave with an approved travel document,  which allowed her to leave the country to visit her mother, she also left the appointment with an approved green card!

Employment Authorization Documents Finally Approved!

Over the course of the past month, three of our clients’ employment authorization documents were approved. As a huge improvement over horrendously slow processing times at USCIS in the past few years, we are excited for these clients whose employment authorization documents approvals came just one month after filing for adjustment of status. The clients and their US citizen spouses are extremely happy that they will be able to further build their lives by working legally in the US, as they all await the processing of their green card applications.
