Post image for I-751 Removal of Conditions Approval for Jamaican Client in New York, NY

CASE: I-751

 

APPLICANT: Jamaican

 

LOCATION: New York, NY

 

Our client contacted our office in early February of 2014 regarding her I-751 application.

 

She is from Jamaica and she married a U.S. citizen in July 2011. Through her marriage, she obtained a 2-year conditional green card in April 2012. Our office helped her in the green card process.  Her conditional residency terminated in April 2014.

 

To comply with immigration requirements, our client and her husband had to file an I-751 Joint Petition to Remove Conditions. She retained our office on February 19, 2014 and our office prepared an I-751 application for our client with other supplemental exhibits.

 

On March 31, 2014, our office filed an I-751 application to the USCIS with multiple affidavits from her friends and family members, joint tax filing records, joint bank statements, utility bills, insurance policies, and photos of our client and her husband 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 her husband. We filed an extensive Response to RFE to the USCIS with more bona fide marital documents on November 25, 2014.

 

Nonetheless, the USCIS scheduled an interview for our client and her husband. On March 11, 2015, our client and her husband were requested to appear for the interview at the USCIS New York City Office.  Prior to the interview, our office prepared them thoroughly via conference calls and also accompanied them at the interview as well. The interview went well, and as a result, on the same day of the interview, the USCIS approved our client’s I-751 application. On April 20, 2015, our client received her 10-year green card which removed the conditions.

CASE: Marriage-Based Adjustment of Status
CLIENT: Jamaican
LOCATION: Newark, NJ

Our client came to the United States in March 2001 with a B-2 visitor visa from Jamaica.  Unfortunately, his visitor status expired in November 2001, and he overstayed in the United States without getting a new valid immigration status.

Our client was married before to a U.S. Citizen, but his case was denied sometime in 2006 due to affidavit of support issues. In December 2009, our client married his U.S. citizen spouse.  Thereafter, our client contacted our office around July of 2010.  Our attorney met him in New York in person and our client retained our office immediately. We made sure all issues pertaining to his criminal records and previous marriage were covered.  Once retained, our firm prepared and filed the I-130 Petition and Adjustment of Status Application on October 18, 2011.  Everything went smoothly and the receipt notices, fingerprint appointment, and work permits all came on time.

The USCIS Newark District Office scheduled our client’s interview on March 21, 2011.  Prior to the interview, we thoroughly prepared our clients over the phone. On March 21, 2011, our client was interviewed at the Newark USCIS office.   However, at the interview, the USCIS office requested for additional evidence with regard to our client’s previous arrest reports in Florida.  Although our client’s criminal cases were dismissed five years ago and we submitted documentation pertaining to those cases, the CIS office still requested a certified copy not just of the Court dispositions (which were submitted) but also of the arrest record. They even wrote on their Request for Evidence what specifically should be in the documents to be issued by the authorities in Florida

Throughout the next few weeks our office sent three written requests to the county court and police department in Southern Florida in order to obtain these documents. We called several times to explain what exactly immigration wanted.  Upon our request, the court sent certified copies of the requested documents, and our office promptly submitted those records to the CIS office in Newark.  Eventually, on June 30, 2011, his green card application was approved, and our client obtained his green card.

CASE: Adjustment of Status – First Preference Petition

CLIENT: Jamaican

LOCATION: Connecticut

Our client has been on F-1 status for many years. He went to colleges in the United States, and has maintained his status lawfully throughout his stay in the United States.  His mother was a naturalized U.S. citizen, and wanted to file her I-130 petition on behalf of her son.  However, since our client was over 21 years old at the time of filing the I-130 petition, our client had to wait 5 years to have a current priority date.

As mentioned before, parents, spouses and children of U.S. citizens are considered “immediate relatives,” and these “immediate relatives” do not need to worry for backlogged priority dates.  However, if children of U.S. citizens are over 21 years old at the time the I-130 petition is filed, then they are not considered “immediate relatives” anymore and would have to wait. They would then fall under the 1st preference category.  (According to the January 2011 Visa Bulletin, the priority date is January 1, 2005).

Our client’s mother filed an I-130 petition for her son back in January of 2005 and this I-130 petition was approved.  Our client retained us in July of last year and discussed with us his adjustment of status issues. On August 12, 2010, our firm filed the I-485 Adjustment of Status Application and I-765 Work Authorization application.  Everything went smoothly and the receipt notices, fingerprint appointment, and work permits all came on time.  There was no Request for Evidence.  On November 15, 2010, our client was interviewed in Hartford, Connecticut.   On December 30, 2010, the USCIS approved his adjustment application. After several years in the U.S., our client if finally a green card holder.
