LAWFUL PERMANENT RESIDENCE STATUS GRANTED Matter of S.D.C. (2023)
S.D.C., a native and citizen of Canada, had entered the United States several times as a visitor. During the course of her travels, she married a United States citizen. S.D.C. and her husband then consulted with Alex to discuss whether it would be possible for S.D.C. to obtain permanent residence by virtue her relationship with her United States citizen spouse. Alex walked them through both adjustment of status and consular processing for an immigrant visa, and after being apprised of the pros and cons of both avenues, S.D.C. and her husband decided on pursuing adjustment of status. Alex put together a complete packet that established that S.D.C.’s marriage was bona fide, that she was eligible to adjust status, and that she was admissible for permanent residence. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) granted S.D.C’s adjustment application without even having S.D.C. come in for an interview.
K1 VISA ISSUED & STATUS ADJUSTED TO LAWFUL PERMANENT RESIDENCE Matter of M.G. (2023)
M.G., is a native and citizen of Haiti, who was engaged to a United States citizen and wanted to know if it would be possible to come to the United States as a fiancé. Alex walked M.G. and her fiancé though the process, explaining the elements that needed to be satisfied first to secure approval of the Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) (“Form I-129F”) and then to secure issuance of the K-1 visa. Alex worked with them to see the process through to completion, and M.G. successfully entered the United States as a K-1 immigrant. Marrying her fiancé within the 90-day period, M.G. and her husband then sought Alex’s assistance on adjusting M.G.’s status to lawful permanent residence. Alex helped them prepare an adjustment of status filing that was sufficient to meet the requirements set out in section 245(a), and the agency found that the filing itself was sufficient to establish M.G.’s eligibility for the benefit sought. Finding an interview unnecessary, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) granted M.G.’s adjustment application. M.G. is now a lawful permanent resident of the United States.
WHAT I ADMIRE SO MUCH ABOUT ALEX IS HIS HONESTY
“I am originally from China, and I have been a lawful permanent resident of the United States for many years now. I was initially denied citizenship for a very complicated legal reason. Alex has helped make sense of all this to me. He first helped me through the administrative appeal, and when that was not successful, he filed a lawsuit in federal court. What I admire so much about Alex is his honesty through all of this. He explained from the outset that this is going to be an uphill battle. He predicted the denial of the administrative appeal and said that the only place we had a chance of gaining ground is in a federal court. Another thing I really like about Alex is that he shares all of his work product with me. This is why I am able to understand everything that is going on. Everything he files with the court, he shares with me. If I don’t understand something, he explains it well to me. I really feel like a have a champion on my side with Alex as my attorney.” – Client
