Immigration Court Proceedings Administratively ClosedPublished: May 1, 2007 By: Matthew L. Kolken Source: My Source
We were able to obtain administrative closure of our client's case, which has been pending before the Immigration Court in Buffalo, New York for over two years. Our client has a Green Card, and has been charged with committing fraud to get the card in the first place.
Specifically, the Government is claiming that our client never intended to take a job from his uncle who filed the petition to sponsor him for his Green Card. This allegation is false and our client has proof that he intended to work for his uncle at the time his Green Card was granted by an Immigration Judge.
The effect of the administrative closure of the case is that it has been taken off the Immigration Court's active docket, and will not be scheduled for another hearing unless the Government makes a motion to the court to put the case back on the active court docket. Until then our client may continue to legally live and work in the United States as he has since 2000.
