Young And In Love. But Immigration Kept Them Apart.
Client is from Ghana, but now he’s a U.S. Citizen. He is also an active duty officer in the Navy. He filed for his young wife in Ghana, and his I-130 was approved. He then navigated the NVC process and got her an interview at the embassy.
But things went badly during her embassy interview. There were some misunderstandings between the wife and the officer. She was refused the visa until she came back with additional evidence.
A month later, she had a second interview. Again, the same issues came up and she was refused a visa.
The embassy then sent a request to USCIS asking them to revoke her husband’s I-130.
USCIS sent her husband a Notice of Intent to Revoke, and he was devastated.
He had been watching me on YouTube and immediately contacted me for a Telephone Consultation.
He hired @mcbeanlawpllc, and we prepared a solid response that cleared up all of the problems the embassy had with the wife.
A few months later, USCIS sent us a letter saying that they agreed with us, and they will not revoke the Client’s I-130!
USCIS then contacted the embassy and told them their decision. The embassy called the wife back in to wrap things up with her.
The embassy requested an updated I-864 Affidavit of Support. After they received it, they issued her the immigrant visa! She is now here in the states with her husband!
Finding Love At The Right Time In Life
When Client came to us, she was a successful professional in her early 50s. She was very excited because she had finally met the love of her life through a mutual friend. She had never been married. He was also a successful, distinguished man from Trinidad.
They were engaged at the time of our Consultation, but they had a big wedding coming up.
After they got married, he returned to Trinidad and @mcbeanlawpllc got to work on their marriage-based case.
Several months later, we got the approval of the I-130. Client asked us to keep working on the case until her husband got his immigrant visa.
So we did all the consular process steps, including providing additional evidence to prove that her husband will not become a Public Charge in the future.
Our Senior Attorney took Client through a grueling one hour mock interview several days before his embassy interview. We like to be tough during our mock interviews because if you can pass through our process, you can handle the worst embassy official.
The day before his interview, I called Client and told him to ‘knock it out the park.” A couple of hours after his interview, he sent me this message:
“Good afternoon Latoya. I took your advice and knock it out the ball park. The interview went well and I’m just waiting to get my passport. Thank you for the assistance much appreciated.”
He will soon join his wife in New York permanently.
K-1 Fiance Stuck In Administrative Processing For Nearly 2 Years!🇵🇭 🇺🇸
U.S. Citizen Client lives in the Midwest, but his fiance was stuck in Administrative Processing in the Philippines.
She was placed in Administrative Processing in October 2018.
He tried everything to get her here, but nothing worked. He even contacted his Congressman for help. The couple was beyond frustrated and sad.
For 5 years, they relied on Skype and Messenger to stay connected.
When the embassy sent us a generic response to our letter, we took stronger action: mandamus.
In March 2020, we filed our lawsuit against the State Department to force them to take action in our Client’s case.
In July 2020, the U.S. Attorney's Office informed us that the Client’s fiance has been moved out of Administrative Processing!
Now, we needed to work with the clients to update the visa application, prepare additional documents, etc.
Once everything was submitted to the embassy, the Client’s fiance experienced a little setback with her health. Also, routine visa services were still suspended, so we had to wait a couple of months.
On January 12, 2021, we did a Skype mock interview with the Client’s fiance.
On January 13, 2021, she had her embassy interview.
On January 14, 2021, the U.S. Attorney’s Office informed us that the visa had been approved!
On January 28, 2021, the embassy delivered her visa packet to the local agency that was helping to coordinate things on the ground!
Our client immediately booked a ticket to America for his fiance!!!!
After a 5-year long distance relationship, our clients can finally move forward with their life in the U.S.!!
Success After A Denial
Clients came to us in June 2019. They were frustrated, sad and confused about what to do next. They are both Jamaicans and got married in 2017 after being together for over 3 years.
The husband is a U.S. Citizen.
They heard about an accountant who also does immigration. So they sought his help with the filing. The accountant filed for them in August 2017.
Unfortunately, things went badly. In fact, clients didn’t even get their interview notice. Because the accountant wasn’t on record with USCIS, he also didn’t get the interview notice.
USCIS quickly denied their case based on abandonment.
Unfortunately, they didn’t have any evidence that would give them a winning chance to reopen their case. Thus, I recommended that we re-file the case.
We filed their case in August 2019. We didn’t get any RFEs. However, the pandemic slowed things down.
Last week, we prepared them for today’s Green Card interview. About an hour after the interview, we got the USCIS email informing us that the case was approved!
Client will get her 10-year Green Card!
"We are so glad that we chose McBean for our GreenCard. She is very knowledgeable, Patient & very professional. Our GreenCard was approved in 6months! from the time of filing. All credit goes to McBean, the way she prepared our file was amazing in a very short period of time.
We are so thankful to her & her team. Now we are looking forward to do our US citizenship also with her. If you are looking for Immigration help then definitely choose McBean, that will be your best choice." - Mona Raj (Feb. 11, 2021)
Green Card Approved In Less Than A Year! Petitioner Spouse Is 42 Years Older Than Wife.
Clients got married in January 2020. They had a Consultation with us on February 7, 2020.
They hired us to prepare their Adjustment of Status marriage case...and asked that we file it BEFORE Public Charge goes into effect on February 24, 2020!
He is 42 years older than her!!! But they have a beautiful love story and I wanted to help them.
We got to work (fast!).
We addressed all of the major issues, and believe it or not, age wasn't a big issue for us.
We filed around February 22, 2020 (with our pre-Public Charge batch of cases).
We recently prepared them for their Green Card interview.
We then attended their interview telephonically.
It was a very short interview. They were asked only ONE question: “How did you meet?”
That was a wrap!
An hour later, we got an email saying that the case was approved, and the Green Card has been ordered!
This was only possible because our team did a stellar job with this case (and others!).
All of the critical evidence was there to prove the CENTRAL ISSUE: intent to share a life together.
Like we always say, the keys to a good filing are focusing on your story and providing quality evidence (not quantity).
We're so happy for them!
Real Marriage But Where's The Evidence For I-751 Petition?
Client is from Guyana. She had a 2-year Green Card through marriage. However, shortly before it expired, her and her husband filed the I-751 petition on their own to get the 10-year Green Card.
After they filed the I-751, USCIS sent them a long letter requesting more evidence.
She was scared because she didn’t have the evidence they were asking about. They didn't have a lease, joint bank account, insurance, children together, etc.
She didn’t know what to do so she contacted us.
On November 9, 2020, we had a Video Consultation with her.
We told her not to worry because we could definitely handle this. So long as they have a genuine relationship, we could prove this to the government.
She hired us and we prepared a strong response (despite the lack of evidence noted in the RFE letter).
On December 22, 2020, we sent our response to USCIS.
On January 14, 2021, USCIS received our response.
On January 28, 2021, USCIS sent the Approval Notice for her 10-year Green Card.
The Client couldn’t believe it. When the mail arrived, she asked her family to open it because she was so nervous. She thought it would take several months to get an answer.
The best part is that she’s also eligible to apply for naturalization NOW!
"My immigration journey started February 2020, I was scared and confused, so I decided that I wanted the best immigration lawyer to work on my case.
I went on YouTube and McBean Law was very informative , I learned alot in minutes, so I decided that she would be the perfect fit to work on my case, she is well aware and rounded very knowledgeable of the immigration process .
I contacted her and she get to work, I felt relieved and comfortable, the level of professionalism is unmatched. In exactly 1 year my case was approved on the spot with only 1 question asked.
I see alot of person's saying its easy do it yourself, but 1 mistake can delay your process for years, I am still in shock how smoothly my process went, and its all because of the preparation.
A big thank you to McBean Law, I couldn't have done it without you."
"Very professional staff, led by the Mrs. McBean- Pompy. I am most impressed by the level of honesty and integrity that comes along with the advise they give. Would recommend them 100%."
