On August 30, 2012, an immigration judge granted Section 212(h) waiver to a Lin & Valdez client. Since the ICE Counsel waived the appeal to the Court’s decision, the Judge’s order has become final and our client will get his green card back.
This case was referred to our office by a criminal attorney. The client has been in the US for 20 years. He was brought to the removal proceeding upon returning to the US from an overseas trip.
Upon evaluating the situation and knowing the client’s history, Attorney Stewart Lin advised client that he was not eligible for the easier form of relief in cancellation of removal, but have to fight for the difficult Sec. 212(h) waiver.
Because of its higher hurdle, the Sec. 212(h) waiver relief from removal is frequently deemed as the last recourse, and more difficult-to-obtain relief compared with other relieves. For two years, Attorney Stewart Lin represented the client in the immigration court. On August 30, 2012, our client and his mother appeared in the court to testify. Upon completion of the trial, the judge was convinced with the merits of our client and granted the requested relief.
