Case Results

  • Secured Their Green Cards
    H2B to LPR
    A janitorial company had several workers that they had employed year after year on H2Bs who they were interested in promoting and sponsoring for a green card. After successfully getting Form 9089 certified by the Dept of Labor for supervisory positions with the company, we were able to reach out to the employees and work with the company to submit an I-140/I-485 petition. The I-140s were quickly approved and they successfully completed their I-485 interviews to secure their green cards. We are now working with some of the employees to bring their families to the US as follow-to-join derivatives through consular processing.
  • Released from ICE / Pending Work Permit
    Removal (Bond Motion)
    Immigrant had a prior order of removal from over 10 years ago. He was detained by ICE again and his US citizen wife hired us to try to get him out. We filed a Motion To Reopen his In Absentia Order with the immigration court in New Orleans, Louisiana. The motion was granted. Then we were able to get him released from ICE custody on bond. He’s applying for cancellation of removal and should receive his work permit soon.
  • Secure a New P1 Visa for 3 Years
    P1 Visa
    A foreign professional boxer had a P1 visa expiring in a couple of weeks and a falling out with his employer. We were able to work with his new manager to put together the needed information about their business, required licenses, and his ability to secure a new P1 visa for 3 years that was approved in 3 days.
  • Approved Green Card
    AC21 Portability at the I-485 Interview
    A client came to us when she received her I-485 interview notice based on an approved I-140. Her I-485 had been pending more than 180 days. The employer who petitioned for her was ending her employment in a couple of months and was no longer supporting of her green card application. She had been in discussion with another company in efforts to secure new employment. We worked with her and her new employer to finalize her employment, prepare the I-485 Supplement J and gather the documentation to present at her interview under AC21 to allow her to port her I-140 and green card application. Her green card was approved a few days after.
  • Filed for I-918 U-Visa Petition
    U Visa Certification
    Her certification was initially denied because the police department did not believe she had provided sufficient assistance since she did not call them to continually follow up and she moved about 1 month after the incident. We re-submitted the request, along with the USCIS regulations noting that she had met the requirements in having provided assistance as well as her state of mind following the incident. With this additional information, the police department reconsidered and signed her certification and we filed her I-918 U visa petition immediately thereafter.
  • Green Card was Granted
    Same-Sex, Marriage-Based Adjustment of Status
    The immigrant was a J1 overstay, she was an au pair. The petition did not have any red flags but the USCIS officer interviewed them separately (Stokes Interview) and asked incredibly specific and detailed questions about their finances, work history, and friends and family. Fortunately, our clients were very well prepared and did a great job and her Green Card was granted in just a few days!
