I601A Waiver Approved for Mexican Client Who Entered the U.S. Illegally and Has Been residing Illegally for Nearly 20 Years

The Facts

  • Client entered the U.S. illegally by crossing the border nearly 20 years ago
  • Client does not have a criminal record
  • Client is married to a U.S. Citizen of Mexican descent
  • The couple have children, all born in the United States

Our Approach to this Case

In terms of health hardship, we provided evidence that client’s wife suffers from migraines, minor asthma, and stomach problems. We argued, among many other points, that the health of client’s wife would suffer if she tried to relocate to Mexico with client. We also argued that client’s wife relies on client’s presence in the U.S., among other reasons, because he is the family’s sole source of income and the client’s wife does not know how to drive.

Each i601a waiver success story is highly specific and our arguments are based on the actual facts in each case. Our office has extensive experience helping clients from all sorts of backgrounds and different circumstances. This case was very delayed in immigration because of client’s background check but we stuck with client providing support every step of the case and inquiring through our liaison within the American Immigration Lawyers Association until we finally received his approval. We are so happy for our Client’s future!

Our Latest I i 601a Success Story » Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver

i 601a Waiver Approval Notice


Our Latest i 601a, Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver was approved on January 26, 2017. It is with great joy that we can bring such wonderful news to our clients during this time of turmoil and uncertainty.

Mr. and Mrs. Grey (not their real names) contacted our office to see if we could help Mrs. Grey become a legal resident. From the beginning, they were wary about the process because Mrs. Grey’s previous case had been botched by a notary public. We reassured them that we could help them through this difficult process and we would be there every step of the way.

During our initial consultation, we determined that Mrs. Grey was an excellent candidate for an i 601a Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver. Mrs. Grey was brought to the U.S. illegally by her parents at the young age of two. Her mother and siblings went on to become lawful permanent residents but they neglected to get the proper legal assistance to file her paperwork and therefore left her without any viable options. Because Mrs. Grey had an unlawful entry and accumulated unlawful presence, we needed to figure out a way to cure this.

Mrs. Grey had been married to Mr. Grey (a U.S. Citizen) for over a decade and they had three U.S. citizen children. Mr. Grey had several medical conditions that left him dependent on Mrs. Grey to take care of their children. Although, Mr. Grey had a decent job, if he had to procure child care for three young children, he would not be able to take care of his other financial responsibilities such as his mortgage. We were confident that these facts, in combination with others that we could help them identify, would be useful in presenting a case for extreme hardship to Mr. Grey if Mrs. Grey’s waiver was not granted. We worked diligently alongside our clients to put together the best case and legal argument possible and it paid off.

While it brings us great satisfaction each time we help our clients obtain immigration benefits, this case was particularly satisfying because not only did we get Mrs. Grey’s i 601a waiver approved, but we also restored her faith that had been damaged by previous ineffective legal assistance.
i 601a Waivers are complicated and it is important that you obtain competent legal assistance.

i 601a Waiver, illegal entry and permanence in the U.S. from Mexico

Thursday, March 30, 2017 | Last Updated: March 8, 2017

i 601a – Waiver Approval Notice


I 601a Waiver was Filed on August 31, 2016
Approved: January 14, 2017

The Facts

  • Our Client illegally entered the U.S. in 2000
  • The Client is married to a U.S. Citizen
  • The Client’s spouse has five children and ten grandchildren all U.S. Citizens

How we Built and Won the Case

We argued among other reasons that Client’s wife could not relocate to Mexico to live with Client because of her family ties and responsibilities in the U.S.

Also client’s wife has been working for the same employer since the 90s, if she left her employment to go to Mexico she would not be able to find a comparable position upon her return.

We also argued that Client’s wife needed Client to remain in the U.S. because the couple had recently opened a small family business and it is the Client who works the small business from opening to closing every day. They have no one else to help them.

Client’s wife cannot leave her own job to work the business because she needs the steady income and the health insurance provided by her own job. She had been having some health issues/pain from an undiagnosed medical problem.

Each case has its own set of circumstances and we have extensive experience in drawing out the particular circumstances of each client. We are so happy for client to finally have his immigration situation legalized and permanent.

i 601a Approval Notice

Waiver Filed: July 27, 2016
Waiver Approved: December 23, 2016

The Facts about this i 601a waiver case

  • Client is from Mexico
  • Client entered the United States illegally in 2005 and has remained in the U.S. illegally
  • Client is married to U.S. Citizen who has several children, all U.S. Citizens

Our Approach to this Case

In order to win these cases we have to successfully argue that client’s U.S. Citizen wife would suffer extreme hardship if she tried to relocate to Mexico with client and also if she remained in the U.S. without client.

Client’s wife and her youngest children receive medical coverage through the state of California and if she relocated to Mexico they would lose access to the medical care they require. Having client in Mexico while client’s wife remains in the U.S. would also result in extreme hardship to his wife because the Client is the sole financial provider of the family.

With these and many other arguments in favor of this client we were able to secure this i 601a waiver approval for the Client!

These cases are not easy to win but we have extensive experience and knowledge and we prepare the very best case possible for each client.

Benefits for the Economy from Meaningful Immigration Reform

Thursday, March 30, 2017 | Last Updated: March 6, 2017

Article Published in The Sacramento Bee

 

My family immigrated to the United States from Cape Town, South Africa, when I was just a year old, so I understand on a very personal level why people are willing to leave their family, friends and all that they know to start a new life here.

From the get-go, we considered ourselves Americans and strove to realize the American dream. My father became a chiropractor. I went to law school and in 2002, founded my own practice in San Francisco, then moved to the Sacramento area to open an office in Rancho Cordova. My family did so not just to better our own lives, but to contribute to our country.

Over my 15 years as an immigration lawyer, I have seen the vital economic contributions that thousands of immigrants make to California – and to the country – up close. Because our native-born population is aging and the global economy is becoming ever more competitive, I understand what we lose when we shut out skilled workers and entrepreneurs. This is why we urgently need to move beyond the charged political rhetoric and pass meaningful immigration reform.

Immigrant contributions to California act much like compound interest: Individuals who start businesses and hire workers not only create direct employment but also produce a multiplier effect throughout the economy as employees buy homes, dine at restaurants, take vacations and invest in greater numbers.

According to New American Economy, a bipartisan group that studies the economic impacts of immigration, there are 7,358 immigrant entrepreneurs in California’s 7th Congressional District. This includes my firm. Foreign-born residents in our district wield $3.2 billion in spending power and contributed $1.1 billion in state and local taxes in 2014. This supports public services such as schools and law enforcement. Highly skilled workers create the same knock-on effects. The engineer who designs a bridge not only enables legions of construction jobs to open up but also makes a major contribution to the economic vitality of a community that depends on this bridge to transport people and goods.

At my firm, we work with these talented, eager individuals every day. Our clients include:

  • a doctor who is conducting cutting-edge research on allergy and immunology disorders;
  • an economist who has worked on projects funded by U.S. Department of Energy;
  • an expert in plant genetics and genomics who is working on ensuring food security;
  • a researcher who is providing new advances in the field of embryology, assisted reproductive technologies and infertility treatment.

There’s really no such thing as an economy that has too many entrepreneurs or qualified workers, especially an economy that is not performing to its true potential. Our nation’s workforce is aging. In our congressional district, less than half of the native-born population is of working age, between 25 and 64. In contrast, 73 percent of immigrants fall in that range.

America is lucky to be the world’s top destination for immigrants. If we want to stay competitive in the global economy, we should be welcoming these people, not pushing them away.

A dynamic economy thrives on the ideas of the best and brightest. It’s no accident that California has the nation’s largest share of foreign-born residents and some of America’s most dynamic industry hubs, including Silicon Valley and Hollywood. Popular and trusted brands such as Google, Qualcomm, eBay, SanDisk and AMD landed in California thanks to the entrepreneurial vision of immigrants.

These individuals are helping pave the way for tomorrow’s economic prosperity: Between 2007 and 2011, immigrants founded nearly half of new businesses in California.

Immigration reform isn’t only about doing the right thing; it is also a way to act pragmatically with consideration for the economic future of all Californians, immigrant and native-born alike. We can and should be aiming for better.

When client signed with The Ranchod Law Group, she wasn’t sure if she was a good candidate for an I-601A waiver, but we were able to successfully argue the specific circumstances in her case. Each case is different but our office has extensive experience as well as the capability to bring out the strengths in each specific case.
Now in this time of great fear for immigrants, our Client feels so relieved to have her waiver granted and be able to receive her green card.

I-601A Waiver Approved for Mexican Client, Unlawful Entry and Unlawful Presence in the U.S.

Thursday, March 30, 2017 | Last Updated: February 24, 2017
by admin

I-601A Waiver was Filed on August 31, 2016

Approved: January 18, 2017

The Facts

  • Our I-601A Client entered the United States in the year 2000
  • Client is married to a U.S. Citizen
  • The couple has a U.S. Citizen child

How we Built and Won the Case

The Ranchod Law Group was able to identify many facts to support the case including:

  • Wife has been with her employer for five years and
  • Wife has numerous financial obligations including four student loans and credit card debt
  • Wife and child suffer from anxiety
  • Wife’s employer provides wife and child with excellent health care
  • Wife and child rely on this health care package for their mental and physical health
  • Child does not speak or understand Spanish
  • Wife relies on client for emotional support
  • Wife relies on client to co-parent
  • Wife relies on client to some extent financially as well
  • Wife’s family depends on her for help with their medical issues (high blood pressure and diabetes)

We used these facts to successfully argue that wife would suffer hardship both if she tried to relocate to Mexico and also if she remained in the U.S. without the client. When client received his approval his wife wrote to us and said:

“Thank you for all your hard work & we can’t wait for all of this to be finally over!”

This nice family will finally have stability and client will be able to find better employment once he has his “greencard” (lawful permanent residency).

9th Circuit Ct. of Appeals Refuses to Reinstate Trump’s Travel Ban

Thursday, March 30, 2017 | Last Updated: February 10, 2017
by admin

Dear Friends,

Today is a historic moment. The 9th Circuit Ct. of Appeals, the first Appellate court to make a ruling on Trump’s Travel Ban, refuses to reinstate Trump’s Travel Ban.

Read about the ruling here.

The Travel Ban has harmed many immigrants, green card holders and even citizens. Individuals who were U.S. citizens and green card holders were rejected from entering the country based on religious discrimination.

The Travel Ban is only one of many immigration proposed executive orders that affect immigration policy which also affects employers and H1B filings.

This is a victory not only for immigrants but for our democracy because it demonstrates that there are checks and balances that prevent our nation from becoming a dictatorship.

If you have immigration questions contact our office at 916-613-3553. We are here fighting for you through the American Immigration Lawyer’s Association (AILA) and the cases that we file for our clients.

Best,

Kaushik Ranchod, Esq.

Managing Attorney
