The Recent Immigration Victories For Our Clients!
With so much bad news for immigrants flying around these days, we wanted to share some stories of victory and hope! Here are some recent cases where we were able to keep our clients' families and marriages together.
USCIS Approves Numerous I-601A, Provisional Waivers for Unlawful Presence
Our firm has successfully represented applicants from numerous South American and the Caribbean countries on their I-601A waivers, including Ecuador, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Peru, Honduras, El Salvador, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, in convincing officers at USCIS that a family will suffer if their loved one is not permitted to remain in the United States.
Upon approval of their I-601As, our clients successfully processed their immigrant visas at their respective U.S. embassies abroad and are now residing in the United States as lawful permanent residents. Generally, these waivers are granted upon a showing that the qualifying relative will suffer an extreme hardship without the applicant’s presence in the U.S. A qualifying relative is a spouse or parent of a US citizen or lawful permanent resident. No other relatives, including children, are considered qualifying relatives for this type of waiver.
USCIS Approves Form I-601 for Applicant Residing Overseas After Request for Expeditious Processing
A U.S. citizen spouse hired the Law Office of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C. to file an I-601, Waiver of Inadmissibility after her husband’s immigrant visa denial at the U.S. Embassy in Guayaquil due to a prior period of unlawful presence in the U.S. The I-601 waiver was filed with USCIS in October of 2017 and the request to expedite was filed on January 29, 2018 due to severe health-related issues of the U.S. citizen spouse.
USCIS summarily approved the request to expedite and the applicant’s I-601 waiver on February 15, 2018, finding that the applicant’s inability to reside in the U.S. is causing extreme and unusual hardship to his U.S. citizen spouse. Generally, these waivers are granted upon a showing that the qualifying relative will suffer an extreme hardship without the applicant’s presence in the U.S. A qualifying relative is a spouse or parent of a US citizen or lawful permanent resident. No other relatives including children are considered qualifying relatives for this type of waiver.
