The Law Offices of Sabrina Li have again been successful with another client who was formerly associated with Findream.
Our client came to us after filing his application for adjustment of status on his own. Five months after filing, he received a Notice of Intent to Deny (“NOID”) from USCIS. USCIS intended to deny his adjustment of status because he had previously listed Findream as an employer while on OPT.
The founder of Findream, Findream itself, and other affiliated organizations, were directly tied to visa fraud in assisting F-1 students to obtain OPT and STEM OPT. As a result, USCIS believed our client to be inadmissible under INA § 212(a)(6)(C)(i) for willfully misrepresenting his employment history to obtain OPT employment authorization. USCIS gave the client a short deadline to submit a waiver and avoid his application for adjustment of status from being denied.
The stakes were high for our client as he had a young child, and faced separation from both his small child and his spouse. He also faced the loss of his career with a major company.
However, in just a short amount of time, our dedicated and experienced staff was able to file the necessary waiver. We were able to argue that several positive factors in our client’s case far outweighed his purported misrepresentation in using Findream to obtain OPT.
Our hard efforts were rewarded when USCIS approved our client’s waiver just 16 days after receiving it. Upon approving the waiver, USCIS also granted our client’s application for adjustment of status and mailed him his green card just one week later. Our client is now happily a legal permanent resident of the United States and is enjoying remaining in the United States with his spouse and child.
