Discover the latest triumph of Sabrina Li's Law Offices! We're thrilled to showcase the inspiring story of our most recent client's success.
Our client came to us after he married his wife, a lawful permanent resident of the United States. The couple were anxious to help our client obtain his green card, so they hired our office.
Upon a thorough review of our client’s history, we discovered that our client provided false statements on his application for a visa to the United States. He also filed for asylum under a wrong category.
Our experienced and knowledgeable team immediately knew that these actions constituted a material misrepresentation to obtain an immigration benefit. This made our client inadmissible under INA 212(a)(6)(C)(i). The effect of a material misrepresentation in immigration can be significant and can potentially lead to the denial of a visa, deportation, or even a permanent ban from entering the country.
Our client was desperate to remain in the United States as his wife was pregnant with their first child. Thus, we knew it was of the utmost importance that our client remains in the United States with his wife and child.
We immediately got to work and concurrently filed a petition for alien relative (I-130) and adjustment of status(I-485) for our client as the spouse of a lawful permanent resident. We also filed a waiver of inadmissibility (I-601) for our client and established that our client’s wife had medical issues, psychological issues, and would have financial hardship if our client were not allowed to remain in the United States.
The client was thrilled when his waiver and petition were approved on the same day of his interview!
