We just were able to save our Client’s Green Card. Our client came to the United States as a young boy from
England with his parents. He was raised here, and is now in his forties. As a young man he made some mistakes, and was convicted for possession of marijuana. When he attempted to renew his Green Card he was taken into custody and was charged with being deportable. Our client has two
United States citizen children who he shares custody with and fully supports, has be employed his entire adult life, is a home owner, and is a tax payer. He has not had any criminal convictions since 1993.
We argued that it would cause his two children an extreme hardship if he was not allowed to remain in the
United States. The Immigration Judge agreed, and the Government did not appeal. The next step is for him to apply for his
United States citizenship.
