Client who was a victim of an immigration fraud scheme gets her green card after 12 years!  

Our client felt hopeless when she came to us.

She thought it was impossible to get her green card because she was a victim of an immigration fraud scheme.  

The man who posed as an immigration attorney filed a VAWA application for her claiming that she was a victim of abuse when in fact she was NOT!   

She came to us in March 2021 and hired the firm to assess her case and determine her chances of getting a green card.  

We first did a case assessment and requested her records from USCIS.

We also did a thorough review of the hardship her US citizen husband will experience if her green card is not approved.  

After a careful analysis, we recommended proceeding with filing for the adjustment status along with an I-601 waiver.

The waiver was necessary due to the fraudulent applications filed previously on her behalf.  

The client and her US citizen husband have two children together. 

We prepared a strong packet to show their good-faith marriage and extreme hardship to her US citizen husband if her green card was not granted.  

With an extensive 12-page memorandum and more than 400 pages of evidence, we were able to convince USCIS that our client and her family deserves to stay and remain united here in the United States. 

We argued that our client was the primary caretaker of their US-citizen children.

The substantial shift in caregiving responsibilities to the US-citizen husband will result in extreme hardship.  

We filed the I-130, I-485 and I-601 petitions in July 2022

Our client received her work permit and advance parole in November 2022. The I-130 was also approved around the same time.  

On April 21, 2023, we received a very happy call from our client of a special delivery in the mail: her 10-year green card! 

Her I-485 and her I-601 were approved without an interview!

After being in the US for 12 years, she can finally enjoy the freedom that immigration brings!

P.S. Every case is different. Past successes do not guarantee similar future outcomes. Consult a licensed immigration lawyer to discuss your unique situation.
