I-601 Waiver Granted, Green Card ApprovedPublished: May 27, 2009 Source: My Source
We just obtained the approval of a waiver of a ground of inadmissibility pursuant to Section 212(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, for a waiver of INA §212(a)(6)(C)(i), fraud or willful misrepresentation. The waiver was submitted on behalf of our client, a citizen of El Salvador who is the spouse of a United States citizen, and was the beneficiary of an approved Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, and an Applicant in a pending Form I-485, Application to Adjust Status.
When we first got the case, our client had been already ordered deported by an Immigration Judge in Miami, Florida. We were retained to appeal the Immigration Judge's decision. We successfully argued that there were material errors of law committed by the Immigration Judge, and requested that our client’s case be terminated. The Board of Immigration Appeals agreed and terminated in our client's favor.
After we defeated the charges of deportability, we filed his Green Card application and a hardship waiver. The waiver was approved and our client's Green Card was granted. He will be able to apply for citizenship in three years.
