RECENT CASE UPDATES:


04/19/17 - On Good Friday, a client subject to expedited removal (with no right to see a judge) after having overstayed his Visa Waiver Program entry, was released from detention. ICE cancelled his removal order after our arguments regarding USCIS jurisdiction and DHS discretion, freeing him to return to his U.S. Citizen wife and 3-month old child. They celebrated Easter together, and now wait for a decision on his permanent residency!


02/10/17 - Young Special Immigrant Juvenile client is now permanent resident. Another Special Immigrant Juvenile client was granted a one year work permit while her adjustment application is pending.


12/21/16 - Two-year work permit approved for client with pending asylum application that is administratively closed.


5/16/16 - Client granted a one-year work permit after having his pending asylum case administratively closed.


2/4/16 - Client’s permanent residence approved after being granted U-Visa as a crime victim. His wife was granted derivative status and we are now applying for her green card.



Please be aware that the new I-601A state-side waiver does not change the fact that the USC petitioner cannot file a waiver of the foreign-parent’s illegal entry. When the parent, who entered the US illegally, departs for the consular interview, the departure from the United States will trigger a 10-year bar on his re-entry. 


When those parents, who have accrued unlawful presence, go to the consular interview, the officer will deny them entry to the US, because there is no waiver of the illegal presence of the parents of a USC citizen! The waiver of the 10 year bar is only available to spouses and children who have accrued unlawful presence and can prove extreme hardship.  Of course, the I-601 waiver has been available for the parents of US citizens, as long as the have not accrued unlawful presence.


Please do not fall prey to unscrupulous practitioners who make promises of changes in the law - and if you have to appear in front of an immigration judge, make sure to hire an attorney who is prepared to represent you in court


I will gladly discuss your case once you allow me to review the particulars - every case is different.
