Client Approved For Green Card Under Amnesty 245(i) After 24 Years In US

January 15, 2023

This is a very special story that we wanted to share with you. 

Our client was the only person in his family without a green card. He has been here for 24 years.

His name was mentioned on an old family immigration petition, but that petitioner is now deceased.

He was once told that he aged out of the system.

He also worked with a bad lawyer who is now disbarred.  

The only lifeline that he had before coming to us is DACA.

Even USCIS did not understand his background before we worked on his case! 

Here's what happened...

Before Coming To Us

Client's aunt filed for his dad in the 1990s.

Client was named on that old family petition

He then entered the US in 1999.

Ten years ago, his father finally got a green card and his siblings were also approved.

Unfortunately, USCIS was confused about our Client and did not grant him a green card along with the rest of his family.

Thus, his father filed an I-130 petition for him, and it was approved in 2013

After Hiring US

In July 2021, he consulted with Attorney McBean Pompy to see what could be done on his case.

She told him that he might be eligible for Adjustment of Status under an amnesty program called Section 245(i)

To be sure, the firm requested his records from the government and researched the issues.

We also requested the father's records.

After finding the evidence that we needed in the old records, we concluded that Client was indeed eligible under Section 245(i)! 

Thus, he does not need to leave the US for an embassy interview, and no waiver is needed. 

Further, we did not have to prove that he was physically inside the US when his aunt filed her petition because it was filed before 1998.  

We then used his dad’s approved I-130 to apply for adjustment of status under Section 245(i). 

We filed the case in March 2022, and it was approved last week!

P.S.  Success stories are based on real cases. However, each case is different, and past successes do not guarantee that all cases will have a similar result.
