We filed the I-485 and a few months later we received a request for evidence claiming that our client was ineligible to adjust status because he had entered the United States with fraudulent intent – he entered as a naval vessel crewman however he intended to stay in the US permanently.
In response we provided ample evidence showing that our client had entered the US many times as a crewman and always left the US voluntarily. On his last entry as a crewman, he was told he was not medically/physically able to perform the duties of a crewman and the ship refused to employ him so our client remained in the US – he did not have the intent to stay in the US when he entered.
USCIS agreed with our evidence and approved the case. Our client can now remain in the US and live here with his wife and two children. The can continue to run their small business in Texas with the knowledge that they will never have to leave.
