Approved Petition For Alien Relative Can Be Revoked At Green Card Interview

approved_petition_revokedIt 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.

Attorney Famuyide Wins Waiver of Inadmissibility For Barred Canadian And Secured Entry To The U.S.

Waiver_Application_Approved-600x450-optThe successes recorded by Attorney Famuyide in the field of immigration in the past 20years, spread across nations. Few weeks ago, Attorney Famuyide recorded another unprecedented victory to cancel the ground of inadmissibility against a Canadian barred from entering the United States.

It all started about 13years ago when the immigrant attempted to enter the United States and was turned back and deported from the Airport as a result of an alleged visa fraud allegedly committed by the immigrant. At that time, the immigrant was not a citizen of Canada.

Subsequent to that incident, all efforts to obtain visa to enter the United States proved abortive. The immigrant filed cases, requested for review, contested the allegation, but the U.S. Consulate abroad would not issue the immigrant any visa to enter the U.S. even after the 5years statutory period.

By a 4-4 tie vote, the Supreme Court affirmed the decision of the Court of Appeal which earlier struck down the program. It was a devastating blow to about 5 million immigrants who would have benefited from the program. The immigrant community in the United States is saddened by this development. The decision has led many immigrants seeking available solution to their immigration predicament in view of the pending presidential election the outcome of which cannot be predicted.

Speaking at the White House, Mr. Obama about the decision, President Obama expresed disappointment. According to the President, “Today’s decision is frustrating to those who seek to grow our economy and bring a rationality to our immigration system,… It is heartbreaking for the millions of immigrants who have made their lives here.”

Attorney Famuyide Converts Withholding of Removal And Obtained Green Card For Immigrant


mail_boxIt was a great risk to let go of certainty to pursue uncertainty, but for a better future, it was worth the risk. Attorney Famuyide was involved with the immigrant in this case for about 10years. At the end, the immigrant was issued his permanent resident card last month. It was one of the creative matter handled by Attorney Famuyide. This case could simply be described as from removal proceedings before the immigration court to permanent resident status.

It all started in Maryland with a marriage to a U.S. citizen spouse. The immigrant in Attorney Famuyide’s case attempted to obtained permanent resident status in Maryland. After about two interviews, the marriage failed and the matter was inconclusive. Unfortunately for the immigrant, he was put in removal proceedings right away by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services. It was at this stage that Attorney Famuyide was retained. The matter was transferred to New York and it took about 3years of going back and forth the court before the matter was concluded.

 Attorney Famuyide applied for withholding of removal before the immigration court on the ground of previous persecution faced by the immigrant years ago before relocating to the United States.
