Keeping families together is the best part of the work we do! Today our client received his green card! He is now a legal permanent resident! We won non-permanent resident cancellation of removal for him following a trial. These cases are very difficult to win, because you must demonstrate the person would suffer: “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” in order to win. It is all about documenting the hardship, humanizing the client and his family, and presenting a compelling case. Thanks Lorena & Fabiola for all of your help! It’s all about teamwork!
In November of 2019 DHS announced a proposed rule that would change the USCIS filing fees for immigration applications. On December 9, 2019, DHS posted a notice in the Federal Register indicating the overall fee increases. Comments to this proposed increase were due by December 30th, 2019. If the rule goes into effect many people will be paying substantially more for their applications.
If you are thinking of applying for immigration benefits such as citizenship, petitioning a relative (either adjustment of status or consular processing) or DACA renewal– it may be best to do so now before they increase the fees. Contact us for a consultation to review your case – we are here to help. Below is a sample of some of the proposed filing fee increases:
