Asylee green card approved with a waiver
The Law Offices of Sabrina Li has been successful in assisting another client. We would like to share their case with you.
Our client came to us after she filed an application for adjustment of status after being granted asylum. She received a Request for Evidence (RFE) stating she was inadmissible under INA § 212(a) for fraud or material misrepresentation. This is because she had stated she was married to obtain a visa to enter the United States. She was not married then, as she had already divorced her husband before applying for the visa.
The client was desperate to get her green card application granted because she had remarried and wanted to petition for her new husband and stepson. So, it was vital for her to have her green card granted.
Our team worked tirelessly with the client to draft an I-602 Application by Refugee for Waiver of Inadmissibility in response to the RFE. We had to work quickly to meet the RFE deadline. We explained that our client had unfortunately relied on a travel agent to complete the visa application, but she would suffer hardship if her waiver was denied and included evidence of her husband’s medical records. Our team argued that despite our client’s error, she was a good person with many equities that overcame her mistake, such as service to the community and owning a profitable business.
Our efforts were rewarded when our client was granted her green card just one month after submitting the I-602 in response to the RFE! Our client was thrilled as she was then able to file relative petitions for her husband and stepson. She, of course, hired our office to assist her with those processes as well.
