Post image for Adjustment of Status Green Card Approval as an Asylee for Saudi Arabian Client in Dallas Texas

CASE: Asylee Adjustment of Status
CLIENT: Saudi Arabian
LOCATION: Dallas, Texas

Our client came to the United States from Saudi Arabia with a B-2 visitor’s visa, and through our legal assistance, he won his asylum application in December 2014.

Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, an asylee may apply for lawful permanent resident status after he or she has been physically present in the United States for a period of one year after the date he or she was granted asylum status. Around February 2016, one year after he got his asylee status in the United States, our client contacted our office again and sought legal assistance for his adjustment of status.  We prepared and filed his I-485 Adjustment of Status Application on March 30, 2016. Everything went smoothly and the receipt notice and fingerprint appointment all came on time. On June 9, 2016, the USCIS approved our client’s Adjustment of Status application. He is now a permanent resident of the United States.

Post image for Gay / Homosexual Asylum Approval for Saudi Arabian Client from Dallas Texas

CASE: Asylum

CLIENT: Saudi Arabian

LOCATION: Dallas for Client / Houston for Asylum Office

Our client retained us in September 2014 to help him with his asylum case. He is from Saudi Arabia living in Dallas Texas. He is scared to go back home to Saudi Arabia, fearing that he will be persecuted on account of his social group as gay / homosexual.

We helped him prepare his asylum application, going over several drafts until his claim was as detailed as possible. Names, addresses, dates, and all possible issues relevant to his asylum claim were addressed. We also asked him to provide supporting documents corroborating his claim, some of which were letters from Saudi Arabia and friends in the U.S. who were part of his social group. Our firm also did some research on articles pertaining to his particular claim, and the type of persecution that members of his social group suffer in Saudi Arabia.

The asylum application was filed on October 22, 2014. On November 20, 2014, the CIS issued an interview notice for his asylum case, scheduled for December 8, 2014 in Houston, Texas. Prior to his interview, our office prepared him thoroughly for his case, going over practice interviews by phone to make sure he is able to address questions the asylum officer would ask. On December 8, 2014, attorney Sung Hee (Glen) Yu from our office accompanied our client at his interview in Houston Texas. The interview went well and our client was able to answer all questions accordingly. There were no requests for evidence prior to nor after the interview. Everything went smoothly.

On December 22, 2014, the CIS in Houston approved our client’s asylum case. He is now an asylee and will be eligible to apply for permanent resident status in one year. He also would obtain his work permit in about two weeks.

CASE: Asylum
CLIENT: Saudi Arabian

CASE: N-400 (Citizenship / Naturalization)
APPLICANT: German
LOCATION: Ohio
ISSUES: Out of Country Travels
?
Our client contacted us in September 2010 to inquire about applying for naturalization.  She came to the United States from Germany in the eighties, married her U.S. citizen spouse, and obtained her green card through this. Their marriage was bona fide at inception but it ended in 2009. But the divorce had no adverse effect on her naturalization because she has maintained the marital relationship more than 20 years. The main reason why she never applied for naturalization was because she had a lot of trips abroad, mainly due to her ex-husband’s work which had her travelling with him to Saudi Arabia. She had over 20 trips abroad since she obtained permanent residency.

Under immigration law, an applicant for naturalization must demonstrate continuous residence and physical presence in the United States.  The applicant must have been physically present in the United States for at least one-half of the past five years. Also, the applicant must not be out of the United States for a continuous period of more than one year during the period for which continuous residence is required. Please note that for both continuous residence and physical presence, the requirements are cumulative and not continuous.  A permanent resident can leave and come back to the United States as much as she or he wants as long as the continuity of residence is not broken and the physical presence requirement is met prior to applying for citizenship.

For the past 5 years, our client had four trips abroad.  Nonetheless, she was in the United States more than 2.5 years was thus eligible to file for naturalization.  The application was filed on November 18, 2010 with supporting documents.  We also accompanied her on February 18, 2011 at the Cleveland CIS office.  Our client promptly and clearly answered all questions by the CIS officer and passed her citizenship interview.  However, the officer asked the applicant to submit a notarized affidavit regarding her past travel history, even though a copy of her passport and a listing of her trips were provided in the application. We went back to the office on the same day to comply with this request by the CIS and immediately sent back the notarized affidavit of her trips. On April 19, 2011 her N-400 was finally approved. Her oath taking is scheduled for May 6, 2011 in which she will be a U.S. Citizen.
