Success Stories

Recent success stories

Instead of featuring individual cases as success stories, today we feature the I-601A provisional waiver program.  Since the program began in March 2013, we have processed many, many of these waivers. We have processed waivers for people from countries all over the world.  We are happy to report that based on our careful preparation and experience, we have had a phenomenal rate of success! The provisional waiver is currently available to immediate relatives of United States citizens whose only immigration issue is unlawful presence.  For those who qualify, this process provides a meaningful way to obtain status as a lawful permanent resident.  Although applicants must still return to their country for final processing, our experience has been that the time spent outside of the United States for processing is less than one month.

If you would like to learn more about this excellent program, please call the office at 860-761-3400 to schedule an appointment.

Historias recientes de éxito

En vez de publicar las historias de éxito para casos individuales, hoy vamos a publicar el programa provisional para el perdón I-601A.  Desde que el programa comenzó en Marzo del 2013, nosotros hemos procesado muchos de estos perdones.  Nosotros hemos procesado perdones para personas de países atreves del mundo entero.  Estamos contentos de reportarles que basado en nuestra preparación cuidadosa y nuestra experiencia, hemos tenido una tasa de éxito fenomenal!  En este momento el perdón provisional está disponible para parientes inmediatos de ciudadanos estadunidenses cuyos problemas de inmigración son solamente la presencia ilegal en los Estados Unidos.  Para aquellos que califican, este proceso provee una manera significativa para obtener estatus como un residente permanente.  Aunque los solicitantes tienen que volver a su país para la ultima parte del proceso, nuestra experiencia a sido que el tiempo fuera de los Estados Unidos es menos de un mes.

Si usted quiere aprender más de este programa excelente , favor de llamar a nuestra oficina at 860-761-3400 para hacer una cita.

Successes from 5/28/2014 through 6/20/2014

Approvals

1    DACA approval
1    I-751 approval (with waiver following divorce) (removal of condition on permanent
residence/10 year green card)
3    I-130 visa petition approval, wife for husband
3    I-485 (green card) approval based on marriage

processing procedure)
3      successful approvals for minor children visa processing based on visa petitions filed by parents
5    work permit approvals

Removal proceedings

1.       We represented a client in removal proceedings who had a long history in the United States and many connections to the United States.  When he first arrived in the United States, he committed marriage fraud.  He was placed in removal proceedings after unsuccessfully applying for citizenship. We argued to the immigration judge that, despite his mistake in committing marriage fraud, he should be allowed to remain in the United States based on the favorable factors in the case.  The immigration judge disagreed and ordered him removed.  We appealed the case to the Board of Immigration Appeals. The Board of Immigration Appeals agreed with our argument and we won the appeal. Our client will be able to remain in the United States with his family.

2.       We represented a client in Connecticut Superior Court where she was facing serious sexual assault charges.  We successfully defended that case so that client was only convicted of a misdemeanor. We then represented her in removal proceedings where she applied for permanent resident status based on a visa petition filed by her husband.  In order to get her green card, the immigration judge had to grant a waiver.  The judge denied the waiver and we appealed the case to the BIA.  We won the appeal. Our client will receive her green card.

Visa processing after removal

Our client had been ordered removed from the United States because she falsely claimed to be a United States citizen.  Her claim was made a long time ago so she was eligible for a waiver but the
immigration judge denied the waiver.  Our client returned to her country.  We applied for the waiver for her again and the waiver was granted.  She will be allowed to return to the U.S. to be with her family.

Successes from 5/22/2014 to 5/27/2014

1   Visa petition approved Husband/Wife
1   I-751 approval/ (10 year green card)

2   Lawful permanent resident approval (green card)
One of these cases was initially denied because USCIS found that the applicant had failed to prove the hardship necessary to qualify for the fraud waiver that he needed. We persuaded USCIS to reopen this case and ultimately to approve the waiver and the green card

2   Naturalization/Citizenship approvals
One of these approvals came on a case that first required us to persuade USCIS to take action on a case that had been pending for 8 months.  USCIS scheduled a second interview.
By preparing our client for the interview and working through some difficult issues, we were able to help our client obtain citizenship.

1 Employment Authorization/Work permit approval
1 Motion to Reopen
We persuaded DHS to agree to reopen a case in which our client had been ordered removed.
By reopening the case, we eliminated the removal order so that our client could go forward on the
visa petition that a relative had filed.

2 successful bond hearings during which the judge agreed to set bond for two individuals who were previously being held in mandatory detention/no bond.

Deportación

1.      Nuestra oficina representó un cliente en proceso de deportación que tenía una larga historia en los Estados Unidos y muchas conexiones a los Estados Unidos.  Cuando el llego a los Estados Unidos por primera vez, el cometió fraude de matrimonio.  Luego aplicó para su ciudadanía, fue negado, y luego lo pusieron en proceso de deportación.  Nuestra oficina argumentó con el juez de inmigración, indicando, que a pesar de su error en cometer fraude de matrimonio, deben de permitirle quedarse en los Estados Unidos basado en los factores favorables de su caso.  El juez de inmigración no estuvo de acuerdo y ordenó su deportación de los Estados Unidos.  Nuestra oficina apeló el caso a la Junta de Apelaciones. La Junta de Apelaciones estuvo de acuerdo con nuestra argumentación y ganamos la apelación. Nuestro cliente podrá quedarse en los Estados Unidos con su familia.

2.      Nuestra oficina representó un cliente en la Corte Superior de Connecticut en donde ella estaba enfrentándose a cargos serios de asalto sexual.  Nuestra oficina defendió ese caso victoriosamente y nuestro cliente solo fue condenada por un delito menor.  Luego, la representamos en su caso de deportación donde ella aplicó por su residencia permanente basada en una petición para la visa sometida por su esposo.  Para poder obtener su tarjeta de residencia, el juez de inmigración tenía que conceder un perdón.  El juez negó el perdón y nuestra oficina apeló el caso a la Junta de Apelaciones. Nuestra oficina ganó la apelación.  Nuestro cliente recibirá su tarjeta de residencia.

Proceso para obtener la visa después de la deportación

Nuestro cliente había sido deportada de los Estados Unidos porque ella falsamente reclamó ser ciudadana de los Estados Unidos.  Ella había reclamado eso hace tiempo y por lo tanto ella era elegible para un perdón, pero el juez de inmigración le negó el perdón.  Nuestro cliente volvió a su país. Nuestra oficina volvió a aplicar para el perdón de nuestro cliente y el perdón fue aprobado.  A ella le permitirán volver a los Estados Unidos para estar con su familia.

Progreso adquirido durante el periodo del 22 de mayo al 27 de mayo del 2014

1 Visa basada en una petición de cónyuges aprobada
1 Aprobación de la aplicación I-751/(tarjeta de residencia vigente por 10 años)

2 Casos de residencia permanente aprobados (tarjeta de residencia)
Originalmente, uno de estos casos había sido negado porque inmigración determino que el beneficiario
no pudo demostrar el sufrimiento necesario para calificar para el perdón de fraude necesario.
Nosotros convencimos a inmigración que reabriera este caso y que finalmente aprobaran el perdón y
la tarjeta de residencia.

2 casos de ciudadanía aprobados
Una de estas aprobaciones se trata de un caso que originalmente requería que nosotros consiguiéramos que inmigración tomara acción en un caso que había estado irresuelto por 8 meses.
Inmigración los cito para una segunda entrevista.  Nosotros preparamos a nuestro cliente para la entrevista y luchamos con algunos asuntos dificultosos, y como resultado, pudimos ayudar a nuestro cliente a obtener su ciudadanía.

1 Permiso de trabajo aprobado
“Deportación”

1 Moción para reabrir el caso con la corte de inmigración
Nosotros convencimos al departamento de inmigración que reabriera el caso de nuestro cliente en el cual le habían dado una orden de deportación.  Al reabrir el caso, nosotros eliminamos la orden de deportación, y como resultado, nuestro cliente pudo proceder con la petición para su visa, la cual su pariente ya le había sometido.

2 audiencias para fianzas con resultados positivos en las cuales el juez acordó darle fianza a dos individuos quienes previamente estaban en detención mandataría sin fianza.
