Green Card Approved After Administrative Appeals Office Appeal

Published: Oct 23, 2007 By: Robert D. Kolken Source: My Source

Our Canadian citizen client is married to a United States citizen.  She petitioned for him and he applied for adjustment of status in the United States .  His application was denied by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services because of a mail theft conviction in Canada.

Our review of the statute and facts resulting in the conviction determined that only a temporary taking was involved, which is not a crime involving moral turpitude rendering him inadmissible to the United States. Our appeal to the Administrative Appeals Office of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services was successful and Robert D. Kolken, Esq. obtained lawful permanent resident status for him thereafter.
