Client Married to United States Citizen Has Green Card Approved Along with Son
I just returned from an adjustment interview at the USCIS office in Santa Ana, California, where the USCIS officer approved the adjustment of status application for my Aliso Viejo client and her son. She is originally from Brazil, and she married her US citizen husband in January 2010. We filed for the adjustment of status one month later. The couple dated for one year before marrying. Both of them had been previously married; therefore, we provided proof of divorce along with evidence of the good faith marriage. The US citizen husband also petitioned for his stepson, who is only 5 years old.
The USCIS officer asked them a few questions about how they met and when they decided to get married. He commented on the fact that they married shortly after the husband’s divorce was final, but ultimately determined he was confident that the marriage was entered into in good faith and was not fraudulent.
This has been a great month for the couple. Two weeks ago, they gave birth to their first child together – a beautiful baby girl. Now, the whole family is certain to remain together in the United States. I am very happy for them and wish them all the best.
