It will depend in part, however, on the classification of detention. For those eligible for a bond, the process can nonetheless be difficult and overwhelming.

A.M.B. is a native and citizen of Ukraine who had maintained lawful permanent resident status for more than three decades. He was afraid to apply for naturalization because of criminal history he had from over a decade ago. When he consulted with Alex, Alex carefully reviewed the relevant criminal records (and helped secure those that A.M.B. had not been able to provide) and determined that A.M.B. would still be able to establish good moral character in accordance with section 316(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Less than three months after filing his Application for Naturalization (“Form N-400”), A.M.B. was approved for citizenship. A.M.B. is now a United Stats citizen.

L.S. and B.P. are natives and citizens of Argentina who had entered the United States as B-2 nonimmigrants. While they had initially planned a brief trip, their daughter (who is a United States citizen) consulted with Alex to see if it was possible to get her parents permanent residence in the United States. Having been inspected and admitted as tourists, each was able to adjust status under section 245(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (hereinafter referred to as “the Act”) so long as their daughter filed a separate family-based petition on behalf of each. Careful screening of the case also revealed that L.S. had served in the military around the time of the Dirty War in Argentina. Accordingly, before submitting any application, Alex made sure L.S. first secured the type of evidence helpful in overcoming any potential issue with inadmissibility under section 212(a)(3) of the Act. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) was satisfied with the evidence presented in L.S.’s and B.P.’s respective adjustment packets and granted each application without even having L.S. or B.P come in for an interview. L.S. and B.P. are now lawful permanent residents of the United States.
