CASE RESULTS


ADJUSTMENT OF STATUS AFTER HAVING BEEN PREVIOUSLY ACCUSED OF MARRIAGE FRAUD

Client had previously been married over 20 years ago and during that marriage applied for residency. USCIS later determined that the marriage was fraudulent, but did not place the client in removal proceedings to have his case heard by a judge. Client now has a USC son that is able to petition for him. USCIS attempted to bring up the previous finding of marriage fraud and tried to deny the case. We successfully argued that the client’s due process rights would be violated by bringing up a charge 20 years after the fact.

CHINESE ASYLUM CASE (CHRISTIAN CONVERT)

Client was a Chinese national that entered the United States without inspection. The client belonged to an underground Christian church in China and was persecuted by the Chinese government for their involvement. We were able to prove in court that the client suffered past persecution and would suffer future persecution if they were forced to return to China.
