I-130 and I-485 Approved on the Same Day Despite Receiving a Notice of Intent to Deny (NOID)
Law Offices of Sabrina Li successfully rebutted USCIS’s position that our client was not legally free to remarry based on her prior records. After receiving our response packet with carefully crafted arguments and supporting documentary evidence, the client’s green card application was shortly approved.
The client’s U.S. Citizen spouse filed an I-130, Petition for Alien Relative on her behalf. After her interview with USCIS, she received a Notice of Intent to Deny, which alleges the client failed to submit evidence of legal termination of a previous marriage that existed by the time of filing the B2 application.
The client told us she hired a travel agent to work on her B2 visa application in the past. The agent erroneously marked her marital status as “married” instead of “divorced.” The client submitted a divorce decree showing she was divorced years ago before applying for the B2 visa and presented it during the I-130 interview. Still, the client was requested by the USCIS officer to submit evidence of the claimed marriage on the B2 visa application that existed at least at the time of submitting the B2 application and whether it had been ended or terminated.
The client had no proof showing such termination because she was not married at that time. Before hiring the Law Offices of Sabrina Li, the client had consulted many other attorneys, and she had told her I-130 application had no chance of getting approved.
We have handled numerous similar cases, and our legal team is skillful at clarifying and explaining inconsistencies shown on the applications. With our help, our client finally received good news after months of waiting. Congratulations again to our client.
