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.
If you are in removal proceedings in Los Angeles, contact The Nunez Firm to schedule a consultation. Managing attorney Jay Nunez will discuss your case with you and help you determine your options and likelihood of success.
