Immigration Judge grants adjustment of status

Published: Jan 22, 2007 By: Eric W. Schultz Source: My Source
The Immigration Court granted adjustment of status to accord a client from Jamaica lawful permanent resident status.  The client, married to a U.S. citizen, had initially been denied his green card.  Eric W. Schultz, Esq., successfully appealed the denial to the Board of Immigration Appeals, which found that the client was both eligible for a green card and deserved a favorable exercise of discretion to remain with his wife and two young children, despite his having overstayed his initial visitor visa and a minor arrest.  The Immigration Judge accepted the BIA’s decision and entered an order granting the client permanent resident status.  The client may now remain in the U.S. to raise his children with his wife, and can be eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship in as soon as 3 years.
