Deportation Prevented: Green Card on the WayPublished: May 19, 2008 By: Matthew L. Kolken Source: My Source
We just obtained the termination of Deportation Proceedings on behalf of our client, a citizen of Benin. Our client was lawfully admitted to the United States as a B-2 nonimmigrant visitor in 1992. Last September she married her United States citizen husband who filed all of the necessary forms for her Green Card with Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS).
After filing her Green Card application our client was encountered by Immigration and Customs Enforcement who started deportation proceedings against her for overstaying her visitor’s visa. We were then retained.
We were able to get the Green Card Petition approved after an interview with CIS, and then filed a motion with the Court to terminate the Deportation proceedings. The Immigration Judge granted our motion, and our client should have her Green Card by the end of the month.
