Deportation Prevented: Green Card Application PendingPublished: Aug 6, 2008 By: Robert D. Kolken Source: My Source
Administrative Closure means that a case was taken off the Immigration Court’s active calendar. Our Jamaican client married his United States citizen wife after Immigration Court proceedings were instituted.
We prepared a Petition for Alien Relative on his behalf and requested the Bona Fide Marriage Exemption of the two year foreign residence requirement, and documented that the marriage was not for immigration purposes.
We obtained approval for administrative closure from the attorney for the Department of Homeland Security. The Immigration Judge administratively closed the proceeding pending the adjudication of the wife’s petition.
