Court Case Reopened

Published: Jul 13, 2006 Source: My Source
We obtained the reopening of an Immigration Courtproceeding to allow our client, a citizen of Yemen, the opportunity to apply for lawful permanent resident status based on his marriage to a US citizen.  When the client retained our office, he faced an order of removal and potentially imminent detention. On an emergency basis we commenced Habeas Corpus proceedings in U.S. District Court, to obtain a stay of removal which prevented the client’s arrest and deportation.  We then successfully negotiated with the Government to join in our motion to reopen which was granted by the Judge.  The client will now have his proper day in Court that he deserves regarding his lawful permanent residence eligibility.
