The Law Offices of Sabrina Li has been successful in assisting another client. We would like to share their case with you.
Our client was granted an F-1 visa, but never enrolled in school and filed an application for asylum instead. His asylum application was denied by USCIS, and the client was placed in removal proceedings. His removal proceedings had been administratively closed. However, when he married a United States citizen and wanted to obtain legal status through his marriage, he turned to The Law Offices of Sabrina Li.
The difficulty in the case was that the client had obtained a student visa, but never attended school. Since the client obtained a visa that he never intended to abide by, we knew the client was inadmissible under NA §212(a)(6)(C)(i) for making a material misrepresentation to obtain a visa or admission to the United States.
Our knowledgeable team knew we could cure our client’s inadmissibility with an I-601 waiver. However, we could not apply for the client’s green card until his removal proceedings were dealt with. First, we filed a Motion to Recalendar the client’s removal proceedings, and at his scheduled hearing, we requested that his proceedings be dismissed. The Immigration Judge agreed and dismissed his case the same day!
Then, we filed his application for adjustment of status with a waiver of inadmissibility. In our waiver, we pointed out hardships due to the client’s financial situation as the couple had recently depleted their savings to buy a home, and his wife could not afford their bills on her own. We also pointed out the U.S. citizen’s mental health struggles and established that taken in the totality, the U.S. citizen would suffer extreme hardship without our client.
The client was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief when his waiver was granted. He now has no impediments to a grant of his adjustment of status!
To be eligible for an I-601 waiver of the material misrepresentation grounds of inadmissibility, an individual must:
