Provisional Waiver Gaining Ground With Frustrated Immigrant As the Last Option

provisional_waiverIt is no longer gainsaying to say that there are many immigrants in the United States today who are stranded due to their mode of entry. These immigrants entered the U.S. without inspection. They are married to U.S. citizens’, spouses with children, but they cannot adjust their status in the U.S. because they are not qualified for payment of $1000 penalty under Section 245(i) of the Immigration & Nationality Act as amended.

It appears now since the passage of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform is no longer imminent, that the provisional waiver route is the only option for those who entered without inspection to obtain their permanent resident status. The process will require traveling abroad to obtain the green card after the approval of the provisional waiver in the United States.

Attorney Famuyide Wins Green Card for A Battered Spouse After Two Prior Denials

Attorney_WinsOne fateful afternoon recently, this immigrant received a call from the Law Office of Joseph Famuyide that the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service sent her green card. It seemed like the happiest day of her life as she narrated her ordeal to everyone who cared to listen. This is one of the latest success stories of the Law Office of Attorney Famuyide.

This immigrant from one of the Caribbean countries walked into Attorney Famuyide’s office at the peak of her frustration. She had failed two green card interviews including the Stokes interview. To worsen her situation, she had received a notice advising her to appear before the Immigration Court for removal proceedings. At that time, she was represented by a New York based immigration attorney who represented her at the failed interviews. It was a very bad case which required a complete overhaul judging from the facts of the case and what the immigrant was going through.

From Probation to Deportation; NYC Probation Dept. Collaborating With ICE

from_probation_to_deportationIt is becoming more and more clear that the NYC Probation Department is collaborating with the U.S. Immigration and Customs and Enforcement (ICE) with many immigrants who are on probation, that are now ending up in immigration detention and before Immigration Court toward the end of their probation period. 

All immigrants who are undocumented or who are permanent resident aliens must read this article and seek legal representation and protection through any qualified immigration attorneys during their probation period.

It is now becoming a recurring event at the Law Office of Joseph Famuyide for family members to walk-in seeking legal representation because their loved ones went to report at the Probation Department and never return home. The most common of these cases are those immigrants with green cards who have been arrested and convicted twice for offenses as menial as jumping the turnstile and those who committed one felony which qualified as crime involving moral turpitude or aggravated felony.

Delay in Issuance of Approval Numbers For Cancellation Of Removal Winners

delay_in_issuanceMany immigrants have resulted to applying for cancellation of removal as a way of rescuing themselves from deportation once they find themselves before the judge for removal proceedings. Even those with very slim chance of success, still apply at least to delay their removal from the United States. 

Some of these immigrants who have waited for President Obama for many years to pass an immigration reform bill ended up applying for cancellation of removal. Some of them were actually granted the relief, but now for the past two years the visa numbers are not available. These cases are held in limbo before the immigration court because there are no numbers to assign to them.

Don't File For The Waiver of Inadmissibility Without The Help of An Attorney 

dont_file_waiver_ofThere are many immigrants in the United States today who have lived in the U.S. for many years who are not “admissible” to status as a result of one violation or the other. These immigrants cannot be granted permanent resident statuses unless they are able to obtain waiver of the ground of inadmissibility concerning them.

There are many possible reasons an immigrant might be considered inadmissible to status in the U.S. Some examples are when an alien is convicted of commission of a crime, unlawfully present in the U.S., when alien misrepresented information to an immigration officer with the intention of obtaining immigration benefits, when the security of the United States is involved, when an alien falsely claimed to be a citizen of the United States, etc.
