Immigration Court Terminated

Published: Dec 12, 2005 By: Matthew L. Kolken Source: My Source
Matthew L. Kolken, Esq. was able to obtain Conditional Termination of Immigration Court Proceedings instituted against his client, a citizen of Kenya .  Mr. Kolken's client lied to the Department of State to obtain a visitor’s visa under the duress of an abusive brother-in-law who had "inherited" her after her spouse had passed away.  She was told that if she did not lie to get her visa she would be killed.


Mr. Kolken was able to work out a deal with the Office of Chief Council and made a joint motion to have his Client's case Conditionally Terminated to allow for the adjudication of her Green Card, and waiver applications.  He Green Card application was based on the approval of a Battered Spouse Petition, which was approved by Citizen and Immigration Services (CIS). The Immigration Judge granted the joint motion, and the case has been removed from the Court's docket to allow for CIS to review both applications.
