Removal Case Is Dismissed For Client Who Overstayed Visa!

After advocating for our client, his deportation case has been dismissed!

Client is from Jamaica.  

He has been in the US for the past few years after overstaying his visa.

Several months ago, he was briefly detained at our northern border.

He was then issued a Notice to Appear (NTA) in immigration court and released on his own recognizance.  

He came to us for a consultation in November 2022.

After assessing his case, we recommended that we file a Prosecutorial Discretion request to dismiss removal proceedings.

Unfortunately, he had no forms of relief available to him in immigration court.  

He has no relatives in the US who could petition for him, and he is unmarried.

Thus, it was critical to get his case dismissed, otherwise, he faced the possibility of getting a removal order.

We filed our Joint Motion to Dismiss Removal Proceedings on June 1, 2023.

In our request to dismiss the case, we highlighted our client’s exceptional work ethic.

His strong work history illustrates that he is a valuable member of society.

He is a team player and adhered to ethical principles.

He also has no criminal record.

Further, he consistently fulfilled his tax obligations which showed that he is eager to abide by the rules of the United States.  

On June 26, 2023, our request was granted!  

His removal proceedings have been dismissed, and he is free from the fear of being removed from this country.

This successful outcome emphasizes the importance of being persistent with your case, not giving up, the power of positive equities and the tireless efforts of our team.  

We are very proud of this favorable outcome.  

Our client’s determination and positive qualities played a vital role in this success!  

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