Attorney Famuyide Wins Follow To Join Immigration Case
Written by Joseph Famuyde , Esq Monday, 14 November 2016 17:09
Due to the huge cost of obtaining permanent resident status in the United States, even when an immigrant is eligible, many immigrants are resulting to using credit cards and borrowing to foot the bill of trying to obtain legal statuses in the U.S. In many instances, families are separated, with an advance party sent forth to raise money for the rest of the family to join later. This was the case of the family of five recently assisted by Attorney Famuyide.
It was a petition filed by an aged mother for her married daughter with three children. It took over 10 years for the matter to be ripe for interview. As a result of the weak economy in the country of their origin, the family could not raise enough money to process the immigrant visa application. The cost of a ticket was also very steep. The family decided to send the principal applicant. Attorney Famuyide processed the principal applicant for the issuance of immigrant visa and she entered the United States.
About six months after her arrival, she was ready with enough funds to do a follow-to-join processing for the rest of the family. It was an arduous task because the old follow-to-join process was not synchronized with the new DS 260 electronic process.

Due to the long drought in the passage of any immigration bill with benefits, many immigrants are now resulting to filing for asylum, with the hope to obtain employment authorization prior to the conclusion of the case. It appears that history is about to repeat itself. The U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services appear to be receiving a volume of filing like that of the mid-1990s. Immigrants must beware and be careful.
In the mid-1990s, many immigrants filed frivolous asylum claims and were burnt as a result. Many of them are still in the United States today without any legal status. They applied, enjoyed the employment authorization for some years before they became stranded. The best approach is to first consult a very qualified immigration attorney for advice before applying to seek asylum.
As a result of the increase in filing, the U.S Citizenship & Immigration Services released a memo stating “Effective October 5, 2016, USCIS has increased the validity period for initial or renewal Employment Authorization Documents for asylum applicants from one year to two years. Applicants with pending asylum claims file Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, under category (c)(8). This change applies to all (c)(8)-based applications that are pending as of October 5, 2016 and all such applications filed on or after October 5, 2016.”
Approved Petition For Alien Relative Can Be Revoked At Green Card Interview

It appears that more and more immigrants and prospective immigrants are falling into the error of thinking that once their petition for alien relative is approved, their pathway to permanent resident status is cleared. All immigrants must know that they are not cleared until they receive their permanent resident cards in the mail.
To obtain permanent resident status in the United States, the petitioner could process his petition, if eligible through the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services, if the immigrant is in the U.S. to obtain the permanent resident status in the U.S. For the prospective immigrants who are abroad, the petitioner could also process the petition for the immigrant to obtain the benefit through the U.S. Embassy abroad
These two processes are vulnerable until the actual issuance of the permanent resident card or the immigrant visa abroad. All immigrants must take the process very seriously to help the immigrant obtain benefit from the process at the end.
It is possible to commence the process of obtaining permanent resident status or immigrant visa abroad through the filing of the petition for alien relative alone. Even though the law allows, in some cases, that the petition and the application for adjustment of status be filed together, a petitioner could choose to split them by filing the petition first. Once the petition is approved, the petitioner and applicant now file for adjustment of status.

Today, there are many successful people all around the world who may want to visit the United States but could not because of a past mistake made in their attempt to visit the United States. Some of them misrepresented facts to the Consular Officer while some attempted entry with forged visas and were sent back.
The Law Office of Joseph Famuyide wants to inform the general public that there is a waiver provision in the law of the United States for this immigration law infraction. Once the violation is waived, such a non-immigrant will be able to obtain visa to visit the United States again.
