Wife's Green Card Approved Under Public Charge

March 2, 2021

It was Friday March 13, 2020 when Clients drove down from Connecticut to meet with Attorney McBean Pompy.

COVID had just hit New York and our office was preparing to go on lockdown that day.

We called Clients and gave them the option to speak with Attorney McBean Pompy over the phone since things were crazy that day.

However, they insisted on coming anyway since they were already en route.

They also made the decision to work with us since the wife was following us online. However, they weren't quite ready yet to start the case.

Months later, we began preparing their marriage petition case.

There were some issues to address including, previous marriages, public charge and other issues.

The wife also works in another state and so we had to prove that they have a marital home together.

We prepared the case under Public Charge and submitted a 300-page packet to USCIS (believe it or not, this was on the “lighter” side for us since our Public Charge filings are usually between 500-700 pages!).

We filed their case at the end of August 2020, but USCIS was experiencing delays with processing new cases at that time.

They also delayed the Client's work permit (which she eventually received months later).

But then all of a sudden, things started moving quickly!

They got an interview notice and we prepared them for today's interview.

We knew that we had to appear at their interview and did so telephonically. All the “gotcha” questions were asked. But our Clients nailed each and every one of them.

They were very prepared...so much so that it didn't appear hard to them.

But we knew from our experience that the questions were on the hard side.

We made sure that no issues were left ambiguous or “murky” on the record.

An hour later, we got the email notifying us of the approval!

We're so happy for them!

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.
