Deportation Prevented - Asylum Granted
February 25, 2019
In 2017 or client came to us distraught and terrified over the prospects of having to go to Immigration Court. He was being deported as a result of his prior attorney doing a poor job of case prep, client preparation, etc. Prior counsel failed to show up at the interview. Our client comes to ArvandLaw and we get our Asylum Team on his case immediately. Between 2017 and 2019 we gathered evidence, conducted interviews, spoke to witnesses, drafted memos, found corroborating evidence, received a pysch. evaluation, etc.
Case Result: Asylum Granted. Client can now live in the United States.
I-539 Application to Extend Visa Stay
July 2, 2018
Client contacted our firm worried about whether her application would be approved even though USCIS recommends that the petition be filed 45 days prior to current visa expiration. ArvandLaw filed it two days prior. Approval granted.
I-129F Fiance Petition Approved
June 12, 2018
Our client had significant issues affecting her case in petitioning for her Fiance in Ireland. After very hands-on strategic planning and case preparation, ArvandLaw secured an approval for the I-129F Fiance Petition.
AFFIRMATIVE ASYLUM APPROVED
May 22, 2018
Client came to us in late December 2017 distraught and obviously shaken by the possibility of having to return to their home country after making the difficult choice of having to convert from one religion to another. The abandoning of their religion and adopting a new one is a crime in the country of origin and would most certainly have been killed for having exercised their basic human right to religious freedom. This case was given priority scheduling by USCIS under the new scheduling priorities issued for Affirmative Asylum on January 29, 2018.
CASE RESULT: Client approved for Affirmative Asylum
US CITIZENSHIP APPROVED FOR 82 YEAR OLD
GREEN CARD HOLDER WITH DEMENTIA.
August 15, 2017
On August 15, 2017 our client, an 82 year old Green Card Holder diagnosed with Dementia was approved to become a United States Citizen. This was a case which required extensive medical documentation by doctors. It was a very happy moment for our client. When we say that we are there with you from start to end, that means that we will attend the Oath Ceremony and Swearing in with you and share your success at becoming an American Citizen.
U.S. CITIZENSHIP APPROVED AFTER FIRST APPLICATION WAS DENIED.
August 2, 2017
In August 2017 client was approved for U.S. Citizenship. He previously had applied for Citizenship on his own and was subsequently denied due to an arrest which he had disclosed. Distraught and disappointed, he retained our firm to start the process all over again.
RESULT: Client passed the civics and written exam on the first try and gets approved.
SAME-SEX MARRIAGE GREEN CARD APPROVED
May 23, 2017
In May of 2017 our firm was contacted by a same-sex couple. They were distraught because they thought that for immigration purposes USCIS would not allow for a Same Sex Petition. However that is not the case. When Same Sex Marriage was legalized nationwide as a result of the Supreme Court ruling, the Federal Government must now recognize same sex marriage.
RESULT: Green Card Petition for Same Sex Couple approved and Beneficiary wife received her Green Card.
ASYLUM/WITHHOLDING OF REMOVAL CASE
In the final days of President Obama's Presidency we had one of our biggest Asylum/Withholding of Removal Cases granted by the Immigration Judge under the Convention Against Torture. Our client was granted Withholding of Removal to a country that would surely have resulted in his execution should he have been returned. This was one of the most difficult cases that our office has dealt with. Our client had served time for possession of a controlled substance in a foreign country and arrived here in the United States on a fake/forged/or stolen passport.
RESULT: Immigration Judge granted withholding of removal.
GREEN CARD REINSTATED
January 1, 2017
In late 2016 our firm was contacted by a young Afghani woman who was the victim of a vicious Notario scammer. A Notario is an unlicensed and unauthorized representative who promise vulnerable immigrant populations with guaranteed results in pursuing their immigration claim.
CASE SUMMARY: Young Agfhani woman submits papers to USCIS to remove conditions on her green card. Seeks the help of a Notario in trying to remove these conditions. USCIS sends out a Request For Evidence. Our client never received these documents because she was the victim of this Notario. Green Card is revoked and that made her removable. We submitted an I-290B Motion to Reopen and Reconsider.
RESULT: Green Card Reinstated and valid for 10 Years.
