Mr. T – from El Salvador started his case with our office in mid-2013. He had been in the U.S. for about 8 years and is married to a United States Citizen. The couple’s biggest fear was that he would have to leave the country for a long period of time to be able to become a resident. Our office worked very hard alongside Mr. T to demonstrate that his wife would suffer extreme hardship if he were not able to stay in the U.S. The waiver was submitted and approved from the U.S. His turn around was under three weeks and he is now back home and ready to continue his life as a resident.
Mr. D – a Mexican citizen, who brought his case to our office early 2014, he has been in the U.S. for over 10 years after he was brought to the country as a minor. Mr. D and his wife wanted to secure their future before expanding their family and having children. Mr. D and our office worked diligently and had his waiver submitted and approved before he left for his appointment in Ciudad Juarez. He is now back home as a permanent resident after less than two weeks in Mexico. He and his wife are looking forward to achieving their goals and starting a family in the future.
Mrs. V – Mrs. V. first started her case with our office in mid-2014. Her husband, a U.S. Citizen, petitioned for her after she had entered the country multiple times with a border crossing card. Our office worked very hard alongside Mrs. V and we were able to get through the obstacles of obtaining an unlawful presence waiver. Now Mrs. V will be able to continue raising her four children and stay here in the U.S as a permanent resident.
Ms. G – Cristina took over her case in 2011 after an initial VAWA application was denied. We were able to re-open her case and obtain a VAWA self-petitioner approval. She received her permanent resident (“green”) card in August 2014. After leaving a violent relationship in 2009, she is finally able to start the next chapter of her life.
Ms. R – After living in the United States for over 20 years, she started the immigration process on her own. Six years later, we were able to submit an unlawful presence waiver and we established that her U.S. Citizen husband would suffer extreme hardship without her here. The waiver was approved and she received her green card in 2014.
Ms. A – Came to the United States in 1990 and has three U.S. Citizen children. Recently, we were able to demonstrate the hardship that her daughter, a member of the Armed Forces, would experience without her here. She was “paroled-in-place” and is now eligible to apply for a green card.
