Adjustment of Status Approved for Canadian Client Married to US Citizen for 8 Years
We received the good news that our I-485 adjustment of status application was approved for a Huntington Beach client, who is originally from Canada. He has been married to his wife for 8 years, and they have a 7 year old daughter together. He entered the United States in 2001 legally, but without a visa (because Canadians are not required to have a visa). After he arrived in the United States, he never left.
He has worked as a contractor since that time. Finally, his driver’s license was set to expire, and he could not renew it unless he obtained his lawful permanent residence, which is why he finally came to me to finalize the green card process.
At the interview, everything went smooth, with a small setback, that we suspected might occur. Unfortunately, his wife lost her job after we filed the paperwork, but before the interview; therefore, we were asked to locate a joint sponsor and file the I-864 before the officer could approve the case. Once we filed the I-864, we received an approval on the I-485 within a few weeks.
The couple is extremely happy that his status is secure, and they can continue living in Orange County indefinitely.
