Attorney Famuyide Wins Follow To Join Immigration Case

attorny_wins_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.

uscis_increaseDue 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.”
