Joint Motion to Terminate Removal Proceedings Granted by Immigration Judge for Client in Mission Viejo
United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) agreed to a join in a motion to terminate removal proceedings for an Orange County client living in Mission Viejo, Orange County. The client was in removal proceedings in Los Angeles; however, she married a US citizen several years ago. The couple has an 13 month old son.
Due to an USCIS error, the couple’s adjustment of status was denied in 2011 and the wife was placed in removal proceedings. This occurred before the couple hired me. The husband filed a visa petition for his wife and it was approved in June 2013. Based on the approved I-130 visa petition, I requested that ICE join in terminating the removal proceedings against my client. This would allow her to adjust her status out of court.
The ICE attorney agreed and we filed a joint motion to terminate in December. We just received the court order approving termination. Now, the couple can handle the case through USCIS in Santa Ana rather than driving to Los Angeles for immigration court.
