Client Granted Naturalization, Becomes a US Citizen Despite Previous Naturalization Application Denial and Criminal History

8/14/2017

Client had retained Houston, TX Immigration Lawyers at The Modi Law Firm to assist him with a difficult naturalization application. He had previously applied for Naturalization with another immigration attorney and at that time had a pending DWI (Driving While Intoxicated). United States and Citizenship Immigration Services (USCIS) denied initial naturalization application based on good moral character and/or his pending criminal record. After his DWI was adjudicated and convicted under deferred prosecution, which generally is still a conviction for immigration purposes, he nevertheless retained The Modi Law Firm for a new naturalization application. Our firm successfully argued that this single conviction should not amount to a denial for good moral character, that he fit all other requirements for naturalization, and that he had other positive equities of good moral character including paying taxes, donations to non-profits and lack of any other criminal history. He was approved and now is U.S. citizen

Client Was Granted An I-130 Petition Based on His USC Wife, I-601A Waiver and Consular Processing.

8/12/2017

Client successfully completed consular processing and obtained Lawful Permanent Residence status with an I-601A waiver approved for inadmissibility for illegal entry/presence. Client entered the United States illegally from Mexico when he was approximately 14 years old. We successfully argued that U.S. citizen wife and newborn baby would suffer extreme hardship based on severe economic loss in order to request waiving his immigration violations of unlawful presence and Entry Without Inspection (illegal entry). We also argued US citizen spouse would face significant emotional and psychological impact if separated from her husband and included evidence of her health condition, including psychological reports, copy of prescriptions, and declarations. The client left for consular processing to Mexico for his interview, was approved, and successfully came back as a Lawful Permanent Resident. The consular process only took approximately two weeks.

Client Granted An EB1-A, Alien of Extraordinary Ability Petition In Less Than 4 Months

8/11/2017

Client was successfully approved for an EB1-A, Alien of Extraordinary Ability Petition. As a Postdoctoral Research Associate studying Biotechnology, Houston, TX Immigration Lawyers at The Modi Law Firm effectively demonstrated the client was eligible based on his extraordinary ability in the hard sciences. Although a very competitive difficult application, we provided evidence to show our Client met more than 3 of the 10 listed criteria to demonstrate extraordinary ability. We won our Client's case in under 4 months with no additional evidence requested by USCIS. With the approved EB-1A, our client is now happily applying to adjust him and his family's status to lawful permanent residence and currently has an I-485 Application to Register Permanent Residence pending.

Client Granted An I-601A Waiver Despite Past Criminal History, Eligible to Apply for a Green Card

8/2/2017

I601A waiver approved in approximately four months. Houston Immigration Lawyers at The Modi Law Firm obtained I-601A waiver in a difficult case where client had prior criminal history, including three arrests and a misdemeanor conviction. We successfully argued relocation to Honduras would result in significant dangers to US citizen spouse, as well as significant economic, emotional, and psychological impact based on US citizen’s health conditions. Also, The Modi Law Firm successfully argued that client’s criminal record did not amount to a Crime Involving Moral Turpitude (CIMT). With the approved I-601A, client is now ready to proceed to consular processing to obtain his Lawful Permanent Resident status.

Individual Placed In Removal (Deportation) Proceedings Gets Released on Minimum Bond and Court Case Closed

8/1/2017

After being detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”), Houston Immigration Lawyers at The Modi Law Firm assisted our Client to be released from immigration detention in Houston and he was thereafter reunited with his family. At his bond hearing we successfully argued for our Client to be released on minimum bond of only $1,500. We also successfully argued our Client's eligibility for immigration relief and our motion for administrative closure was granted by both the detained and non-detained Houston Immigration Court dockets. Now that our Client's removal proceedings are temporarily closed, our client is finally eligible to apply to have his F-1 student visa status reinstated and continue pursuing his education in the U.S.

Newly Married Couple From India In An Family Arranged Marriage Successfully Petitions Spouse

9/8/2016

A couple from India that were married based on their families values, culture and traditions from India, in addition to love of one another. They retained our Houston immigration lawyer firm to help them with the marriage-based application. The case was very complex for two reasons. First, they did not have as much documentation as some other cases since they were newly weds and in an somewhat arranged marriage and secondly because it was very time sensitive that the case be approved so that they can travel to India for their traditional Indian wedding ceremony. Our firm was able to help them think of creative ways to prove their valid marriage through documentation, assist them in preparing the multiple forms required, help them with a mock interview and even attend the interview with them. Their case was approved just before they needed to attend their traditional marriage ceremony in India. The couple could not be gladder that everything worked out so perfectly and this spouse is now a conditional legal permanent resident of the United States.

Client Receives Approved Eb1a For Extraordinary Ability And Will Likely Soon Become A Legal Permanent Resident

9/2/2016

Our client retained us from outside of Houston, TX because she had heard of our reputation and wanted a credible lawyer by her side on such an important and complex application. Our firm spent many hours working on her case in order to strengthen her case as much as possible. An individual may in some instances self-petition for a green card without a company sponsor if he or she can show extraordinary ability. In order to demonstrate extraordinary ability that person must either show national or international acclaim or meet at least 3 of 10 USCIS factors demonstrating extraordinary ability in business, science, arts, athletics or education. In this case, through voluminous documentation we were able to show she met at least 3 of those factors including through her publications, unique contribution in her field including patents and critical role in her organization among other evidence. She is now in a great position to become a Legal Permanent Resident of the United States.

Our Firm Succeeded In Helping A Same Sex Marriage Couple Remove Their Conditions (I-751)

8/25/2016

The reason applicants based on marriage receive “conditional” legal permanent residence is because conditional status is granted when the marriage has lasted for less than 2 years before the date of filing the original petition for their spouse named an I-130, Petition for Alien Relative. In this circumstance, USCIS must provide a conditional permanent residence if they approve the application and a new application (an I-751 application with supporting documents) must be applied for, if a joint a filing, within 90 days prior to the 2 year expiration of the conditional green card status. The most common way to file the removal of conditions application is by a “joint filing” whereby the same couple are still in marital union. Our clients retained our firm after he received a conditional legal permanent residence (conditional green card) based on same sex marriage. Our firm worked on their joint filing of an I-751 Removal of Conditions Application and were successful in removing their conditions. The packet of evidence we provided was in fact so sufficient that no interview was even scheduled for such a case. Our client now is a Legal Permanent Resident of the United States.

U.S. Citizen Spouse Successfully Files For Her Husband, He Is Granted Conditional Legal Permanent Residence

6/14/2016

Clients were from Austin, TX and hired our firm for an marriage based immigration application. The petitioner was a U.S. citizen who had been previously married before and she was applying for her new husband. We filed an application packet for them that included several forms, including but not limited to, an I-130, I-485 and a joint sponsor I-864 form. The case was set for an interview with an immigration officer in San Antonio, TX. After a gruelingly long interview of approximately 2 hours, our client’s case was approved. Her husband is now a conditional legal permanent resident of the United States. Due to the several forms involved in a case involving a U.S. citizen petitioner, the high likelihood of an interview and the need to be detail-oriented on these forms, we highly recommend that every applicant hire a competent immigration attorney if they’re able to do so.

Our Firm Succeeeded Where 2 Attorneys Before Could Not; Client’s Prior Order Of Deportation Was Successfully Reopened

6/1/2016

Our clients retained our firm after having a prior order of removal. She had had that removal order against her from many years ago. It was a very difficult case as at least 2 different attorneys before could not get their case reopened before they hired The Modi Law Firm. At our firm, however, we provide an immense amount of work and were able to have the case reopened by submitting a Motion to Reopen. We filed an I-130 petition from her U.S. citizen husband, which was approved and then utilized that USCIS approval notice, along with several other arguments, to persuade the immigration judge to reopen her case. Now that her case is reopened, she may be eligible through an extreme hardship waiver to receive permanent residence through her U.S. citizen husband. This was a huge milestone and victory for our client and we’re very happy for her.
