On October 30, 2012, the USCIS approved an I-130 marriage petition and the I-485 green card application of the beneficiary we filed for our client. This approval ended a ten-year struggle and nightmare of our clients.
Our client in this case married the citizen spouse in 2002. They filed the family and green card petitions in July of that same year. Unfortunately, an ex-lover of our client sent a defaming letter and injurious information to the USCIS. After a long period of examination and investigation, the USCIS eventually denied the family petition and the green card application of our client in 2006.
Our client then filed appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeal through the help of another law firm. The appeal, however, was also denied in 2008. Following that, our client filed another I-130 in 2008, and this application, likewise, was denied by the USCIS.
Finally, our client came to us in 2011. After evaluating the case, Attorney Stewart Lin and Attorney Zack Huang both believed that the case was not completely hopeless and they hence worked together to save the case.
In July of 2012, however, the USCIS sent a Notice of Intent to Deny threatening to deny the case. Again, Attorney Lin and Attorney Huang prepared a comprehensive package and evidence to strengthen the application. Finally, the USCIS retrieved its denial intent, and granted the I-130 petition and the green application on October 30, 2012.
