We filed the I-485 application for permanent residency along with evidence that she has lived in the US for the past three years and proof that it is in the public interest to allow her to become a permanent resident. The case was pending for six months before we received the approval.
The client is very excited to become a permanent resident. We have represented this family throughout the U visa process, consular processing and green card applications for the past five years or so. We are still waiting for the parents' green cards to be approved. Their cases were slightly more complex which likely accounts for the further delays.
If you are curious about the U visa and would like to schedule a consultation, contact Nelson & Nu
