A marriage based green card was approved for an Aliso Viejo client recently. She is originally from the Philippines, and she met her husband in the Philippines in 2006, while he was visiting. They stayed in contact for several years and he visited her on several occasions over a two year period. The couple visited Thailand and Vietnam together as well. He proposed to her in 2008.

He filed for a fiance visa using another law firm, and although the fiance visa was approved eventually, he was not satisfied with his previous attorney’s communication and attention.

She entered the United States on the fiance visa in 2009, and the couple married within a couple months of her arrival. At that time, the husband was overwhelmed with business obligations, selling his house and other time commitments, and the couple did not file for the adjustment of status until 2010. (Although an alien admitted to the United States on a K-1 fiance visa MUST marry the visa petitioner within 90 days of admission, there is no requirement that the couple apply for adjustment of status within the first 90 days.)

After one year living in the US, the couple decided to proceed with the adjustment of status process. We filed the I-485 and all necessary evidence in late 2010.

The interview went smoothly and the conditional green card was approved for a two year period. 1 year and 9 months after approval, the couple will be expected to file the I-751 joint petition to remove the conditions on permanent residency.

This morning, a naturalization client of mine was approved at the USCIS office in Santa Ana. There were no issues whatsoever, and the interview lasted approximately 15 minutes. Although there were no criminal convictions or long absences from the United States, she felt more comfortable having me represent her and handle the process for her. She did not want to encounter any delays or mistakes in the application process.

She passed the naturalization civics test and English test easily. She lives with her family in Aliso Viejo, and they are all very pleased with the outcome.

If you are considering the naturalization process, and would like to discuss your case with an experienced immigration attorney, contact The Nunez Firm to schedule a free and confidential consultation. Managing attorney Jay Nunez will take time to meet with you and discuss your case.

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.

We just attended an interview this morning for a marriage based green card for a young couple in Orange County. The couple has known each other for 7 years, but they started dating one year ago. They decided to get married a few months later and in November of last year they were married. Today we had the interview with USCIS in Santa Ana, and the officer approved the case.

The wife is a citizen from Brazil and the husband has lived in Orange County for most of his life including Irvine and Dana Point. She received her conditional lawful permanent residence status today, but her green card will not arrive for another month.

In two years, they will apply to have the conditions removed on the green card by filing the I-751 along with proof of their valid marriage.

At an interview with USCIS in Santa Ana this morning, my client was approved for lawful permanent residence based on her marriage to her US citizen husband. She is from Germany originally, and she came to the United States 4 years ago to work under an H-1B visa. She married her husband in June 2009, and they began living together in Aliso Viejo.

We filed for the adjustment of status and the visa petition earlier this year, and all three of us attended the interview today. The interview went smoothly and there were no major problems. The officer approved the green card for her on a conditional basis because the marriage is less than two years old. This means that she and her husband will need to file an I-751 two years from now to prove that the marriage is still viable and was entered into in good faith rather than for immigration purposes. I advised them to save as many documents as they can over the next two years including bank account statements, credit card bills, travel itineraries for trips they take together, photos, utility bills, joint tax returns, life insurance policies and any other evidence that would tend to show that they are conducting themselves as a typical married couple.

If you are married to a US citizen, and you are interested in learning more about obtaining lawful permanent residence in the United States, contact The Nunez Firm for a free consultation. Managing attorney Jay Nunez will discuss your situation and options with you and help you decide what is best.
