When Client came to us in August 2022, he already had an attorney.
However, he wanted to hire us because he had problems communicating with his lawyer.
He was deeply concerned about his deportation proceedings.
After entering the U.S. on a tourist visa, he stayed and applied for asylum.
Unfortunately, USCIS was not convinced of his asylum story, and they referred his case to Immigration Court.
Client appeared in court with his lawyer, however, his asylum case was very weak.
In March 2021, he was informed by the judge that his final hearing will be in October 2023.
At his upcoming final hearing, the judge would decide whether to grant his asylum case or issue a removal order.
Client was really troubled about returning to court because a removal order was the likely outcome.
In October 2021, he married his U.S. Citizen wife, and she filed the I-130 family petition for him.
During his consultation with Attorney McBean Pompy, she recommended that we submit a Prosecutorial Discretion Request to the ICE attorney.
We asked the ICE attorney to join our Motion to Dismiss proceedings so that our client may file an adjustment of status green card application with USCIS.
We submitted the Request on October 27, 2022.
On January 18, 2023, the Assistant Chief Counsel approved our Request!
When we told Client the great news, he had this to say:Thu, Jan 19 at 12:16 PM
