Post image for Marriage to US Citizen I-130 and I-485 Approval for Ethiopian Client in Cleveland Ohio Despite USC Husband Being Abroad During Interview

CASE: Marriage-Based Adjustment of Status
CLIENT: Ethiopian
LOCATION: Cleveland, OH

Our client came to the United States in 2003 with an F-1 student visa from Ethiopia to pursue her bachelor’s degree in the United States.  After she got her Bachelor’s degree, she took graduate studies and eventually got her Ph.D.

She married a U.S. Citizen in December 2012 and retained our office on January 6, 2014 for her adjustment of status application.  Our firm prepared and filed the I-130 Petition and I-485 Adjustment of Status Application on January 22, 2014.  Everything went smoothly and the receipt notices, fingerprint appointment, and work permits all came on time.

The interview was scheduled. However, our client’s U.S. Citizen husband left the U.S. for a medical mission in Tanzania and he planned to come back to the U.S. in September. Our office submitted an interview rescheduling request to the USCIS Cleveland Field Office, asking for an interview after September 2014. However, the USCIS Cleveland Field Office contacted our office and told us that they still want the beneficiary to appear for the interview even without the Petitioner.

Prior to the interview, we thoroughly prepared our client at our office. We made sure bona fides are shown at the interview as well as documentation as to why her husband was abroad (mission).

On April 21, 2014, our client was interviewed at the Cleveland, OH USCIS.  Our attorney accompanied our client as well. On April 25, 2014, her green card application was approved.

Post image for Political Asylum Approval for Ethiopian Client at the Cleveland Immigration Court

CASE: Asylum in Immigration Court

CLIENT: Ethiopian

LOCATION: Cleveland Immigration Court

Our Ethiopian client came to the United States on a B-2 visa in January 2010. He was persecuted and harmed in Ethiopia based on his political opinion and political activism, so within one year of his entry, he filed an asylum application (Asylum, Withholding of Removal, and relief under the CAT) to the USCIS.

He was interviewed at the Asylum Office, but his case was referred to an immigration judge in September 2010. The Notice to Appear was issued and our client was placed in removal proceedings. The USCIS thought that our client’s testimony was different from that of his written statement and found that there is no future persecution.

After the case was referred to the Immigration Court, our client contacted our office in early December of 2010, and eventually retained our office on December 10, 2010.

Our client was scared to go back home to Ethiopia, fearing that he will be persecuted based on his political opinion and his past political participation which alleged to be anti-government activities.

While our client was a medical student in Ethiopia, he actively expressed his opinion regarding the problematic election process, called meetings in campus and informed fellow students about their voting rights. As a result, he was arrested and detained multiple times by the Ethiopian police and has experienced harm and mistreatments in numerous occasions.

We helped him supplement his asylum application and represented him in immigration court hearings. We also asked him to provide supporting documents corroborating his claim, some of which were a letter from his family member in Ethiopia, and his membership certification with the different organizations. Our firm also did some research on articles related to his claim, and the type of persecution he will experience in Ethiopia if sent back.

Our client’s individual hearing was scheduled on February 19, 2013 at the Cleveland Immigration Court. Attorney Sung Hee (Glen) Yu from our firm prepared him extensively twice, both of which lasted several hours. He also represented our client at his Individual Hearing.

During the hearing, our client testified credibly as to his past persecution in Ethiopia and likelihood of future persecution. After the hearing, the Immigration Judge granted asylum relief for our client. He is now an asylee who will get his work permit in a short period of time and will be eligible to apply for permanent residency in one year.
