Post image for I-751 Removal of Conditions Approval for Jamaican Client in Texas

CASE: I-751

APPLICANT: Jamaican

LOCATION: Texas

Our client contacted our office in November of 2015 regarding his I-751 application.

He is from Jamaica and he married a U.S. citizen in August 2012. Through his marriage, he obtained a 2-year conditional green card in February of 2014. Our office helped him get his 2-year green card.  His conditional residency terminated in February 2016.

To comply with immigration requirements, our client and his wife had to file an I-751 Joint Petition to Remove Conditions. He retained our office on November 2015 and our office prepared an I-751 application for our client with other supplemental exhibits.

On November 20, 2015, our office filed an I-751 application to the USCIS with multiple affidavits from his friends and family members, a copy of birth certificate of their child, joint bank statements, utility bills, joint leasing documents, and photos of our client and his wife to demonstrate the bona fideness of their marriage.

Once the application was filed, the fingerprint notice was issued two weeks later. However, the USCIS issued the Request for Evidence (RFE) to demonstrate the bona fideness of our client’s marriage with his wife. We filed an extensive Response to RFE to the USCIS with more bona fide marital documents on February 8, 2017. Eventually, on February 25, 2017, the USCIS approved our client’s I-751 application.

Post image for Asylum (Future Persecution) Approved for Gay Jamaican Client, Social Group Issue, at the New Orleans Immigration Court

CASE: Asylum in Immigration Court

CLIENT: Jamaican

LOCATION: New Orleans Immigration Court

Our Jamaican client came to the United States on a B-2 visa in September 2013.  He was persecuted in Jamaica, and was scared to go back home to Jamaica, fearing that he will be persecuted on account of his social group. Thus, within one year of his entry, he filed an asylum application (Asylum, Withholding of Removal, and relief under the CAT) to the USCIS with our office’s legal assistance.  He was interviewed at the Asylum Office in Lyndhurst, NJ in May 2014, but his case was referred to an immigration judge. The Notice to Appear was issued and our client was placed in removal proceedings.  

After the case was referred to the Immigration Court, our client retained our office again. His court case originated at the Philadelphia Immigration Court, but after he moved to Louisiana, the venue was changed to the New Orleans Immigration Court.

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 Jamaica 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 Jamaica.

Our client’s individual hearing was scheduled on February 6, 2017, at the New Orleans Immigration Court. Partner and Attorney Sung Hee (Glen) Yu represented our client at the hearing. During the hearing, our client testified credibly as to his past persecution in Jamaica and likelihood of future persecution. On February 24, 2017, the Immigration Judge issued a written decision and granted asylum relief for our client. He is now an asylee who will get his work permit soon and will be eligible to apply for permanent residency in one year.
