CASE: I-485 Approval
Our client is a Senegalese citizen who came to the U.S.on an F-1 Student Visa in August 2006 to study at a college in Maryland. As our previous success story explained, our client had a final order of removal in absentia, but his case was reopened after our office’s successful Motion to Reopen in January 2012.
Our client and his wife married in October 2010, and retained our office on March 3, 2011. Our office immediately filed an I-130 Petition with bona fide marriage evidence on March 23, 2011. While the I-130 petition was pending, our client appeared at the Baltimore Immigration Court on February 15, 2012 for his initial master calendar hearing. Attorney Sung Hee (Glen) Yu from our office represented him at the hearing, did pleadings and sought adjustment of status relief upon approval of the I-130 petition.
Our client’s I-130 interview was scheduled on May 4, 2012 at Baltimore USCIS Field Office. Prior to the interview, our office thoroughly prepared our client and his wife rough conference call. Attorney Yu also accompanied them for their interview. The interview lasted more than one hour, but the I-130 petition was eventually approved on the same day.
After the I-130 was approved, our office filed a Motion to Terminate Removal Proceedings with the I-485 application and supporting documents to the Baltimore Immigration Court. The DHS counsel in Baltimore did not oppose the Motion to Terminate. The Immigration Judge granted the Motion to Terminate on August 7, 2012.
Once his case was terminated with the Immigration Court, our office prepared and filed the I-485 Adjustment of Status Application on August 28, 2012, together with other necessary forms and supporting documents. Everything went smoothly and the receipt notices, fingerprint appointment, and work permits all came on time. Prior to the interview, we thoroughly prepared our clients over conference all.
On October 31, 2012, our client was interviewed at the Baltimore CIS office. Our client was fully prepared and the interview went well.
On November 14, 2012, his green card application was approved.
