USCIS Issues Employment Authorization Document to Victim of Robbery and Derivative Children

Friday, December 09, 2016 | Last Updated: December 8, 2016
by admin

On November 21, 2016, we received employment authorization documents for the victim of a robbery and his derivative children.

On April 2011, our client Julian (not his real name), was beaten and robbed by a group of men. He sustained a large contusion and laceration to his face that required an emergency room visit. Julian promptly contacted authorities to report the crime and willingly cooperated with law enforcement in the investigation of the crime.

On July 2014, The Ranchod Law Group filed his case for U Nonimmigrant Status with USCIS.

After patiently waiting for USCIS to review his application, Juan and his two derivative children are now authorized to work lawfully in the U.S. while their U Nonimmigrant Status Petition remains pending with USCIS. Until there are sufficient U Visas available, Julian and his derivative children can continue to renew their employment authorization documents every two years.

If you have been the victim of a violent crime and you wish to have your case evaluated free of charge by our legal team, please contact us immediately.

There are many petitions currently being filed for U Nonimmigrant Status and because the U Visa has a Cap of 10,000 per fiscal year, it is imperative that you file your case as soon as possible.

If you are unlawfully present in the U.S., a pending U Visa Petition can protect you from deportation.

Some things to keep in mind if you have been a victim of a crime:

  • some of the crimes that qualify for U Nonimmigrant Status include: domestic violence, robbery, rape, abduction, incest and murder (if a family member is murdered);
  • if you are the victim of a crime you must report this crime to the police department;
  • it does not matter how old or recent the police report is as long as you cooperated with the investigation;
  • if you need medical attention at the time of the crime, go to the emergency room to document and treat your injuries;
  • keep copies of the responding officer’s business card and ask him to write down your police report number on his card;
  • if you have injuries that were not photographed by the police department, take photographs the day of the incident as well as the days following;
  • comply with any requests for information or assistance from the police department or the District Attorney’s office in the investigation and prosecution of the crime. Prosecution of the crime is not necessary or mandatory to file for U Nonimmigrant Status.

I-601A Hardship Waiver Approval, Nov. 11, 2016

Friday, December 09, 2016 | Last Updated: November 30, 2016

I-601A Hardship waiver approvals - The Ranchod Law Group in Sacramento  California

I-601A Waiver Approval Notice (Nov. 11, 2016)

Another I-601A Approved for a Client from Mexico

Filed: June 14, 2016
Approved: November 15, 2016

  • Client entered the U.S. illegally in 2002 when she was still a teenager.
  • She went on to marry a U.S. Citizen and the couple has two U.S. Citizen children
  • Client is fluent in English, gainfully employed, pays her taxes, and has never had any problems with the law.

The Ranchod Law Group argued, that if the waiver were denied, the client’s spouse couldn’t relocate to Mexico because he has some common medical issues and he would lose his health insurance if he moved.

Among other factors:

  • client’s spouse cannot leave his employment because he does not have a formal education or training which would allow him to ever earn a comparable position;
  • the spouse has two children from his prior marriage and he could not have a relationship with those children if he moved abroad.

A detailed analysis of the facts made it clear that there would also be extreme hardship if client were living in Mexico while her spouse remained in the U.S. because the couple relies on each other to parent their children together: they rely on each other in the U.S. both financially and emotionally.

Each hardship waiver case is different and has different circumstances. Here at the Ranchod Law Group our immigration attorneys have the experience and knowledge to prepare the best case possible for each client.

For this particular client, a mother of two U.S. citizens who has built her life in the U.S. since a young age the peace of mind to finally have legal status is going to be life changing for her and her family.

Approval of I601A Waiver from a South American Country

Friday, December 09, 2016 | Last Updated: November 16, 2016
by admin





I-601 A Waiver Approval – November 3, 2016

The Case: a man who fled from South America into Mexico and illegally into the U.S.

Filed: June 11, 2016
Approved: November 3, 2016

  • Client entered illegally in the early 2000s.
  • Fled from his home country in South America into Mexico and crossed the border illegally into the U.S.
  • Client is married to a U.S. Citizen.

The Ranchod Law Group was successfully able to argue extreme hardship because client’s spouse previously suffered from an eating disorder. Since the eating disorder is not actually about food, it is an unhealthy coping mechanism, we argued that both relocating to a foreign country or remaining in the U.S. without her spouse would result in extreme emotional and related physical hardship.

Also, the spouse receives medical care through Covered California so a relocation out of the U.S. would result in losing her health care.

Finally, we argued client and his wife were particularly worthy of a favorable exercise of discretion due to their extensive volunteer work.

What to do now, Immigration in a Trump World

Friday, December 09, 2016 | Last Updated: November 11, 2016
by admin

At this point in time, no one knows what a Trump presidency will mean for immigrants. What we do know, is what Trump has said throughout his campaign regarding taking a hardline stance against immigrants. Here we have written out some pointers as a sort of damage control for immigrants:

  • We are expecting the mass deportation of individuals who do not have legal status. For this reason, now is a really good time to contact our office to see if there is anything we can do to help you before Trump takes power.
  • Those individuals with DACA (deferred action for childhood arrivals) should contact our office to see if they have any possibility of acquiring a type of permanent status. For example, we might be able to obtain permanent resident status for individuals who are married to U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. This is important because DACA is not law, DACA was an executive order by Obama. This benefit could be gone as soon as Trump takes power if he so chooses.
  • If you entered illegally and are in the country illegally and you are married to a lawful permanent resident or a U.S. citizen, you could be eligible for a waiver which would ultimately result in permanent residence in the U.S. It is essential that you contact our office to see if you are eligible and if you are eligible to apply as soon as possible because again, this special type of waiver is authorized by an Obama order, not law, so it could be gone as soon as Trump takes power.
  • Lawful permanent residents should apply for their U.S. Citizenship. This will allow you to vote in the next election and could potentially benefit any relatives who need immigration status as well.

Although no one knows exactly what the future holds, we do know immigration is going to get tougher. We have extensive experience and knowledge precisely in this area of law and we will always be here to fight for our clients, this is our passion and our life’s work.

I601A Hardship Waiver Approved for Client from Mexico

Friday, December 09, 2016 | Last Updated: November 11, 2016

I-601A Hardship Waiver Approval – Client from Mexico

I601A Hardship Waiver Approval for a Young Man from Mexico

  • Client is a young man who entered the U.S. as a teenager in the early 2000s.
  • His wife and their daughter were born in the U.S.
  • Client works on his own account as a carpenter.
  • Client’s wife stays home with their child and she is currently in a technical course.

With these facts we argued extreme financial hardship and also loss of educational opportunities if waiver were denied.

  • Client’s wife and their daughter receive medical coverage through the state and they pay nothing for office visits or medications.
  • Client’s wife also takes responsibility for her parents who are getting older and have various medical issues.

With these latter two facts The Ranchod Law group argued relocating was not a real option. The idea of her husband ever being deported from the U.S. gave the client’s wife anxiety.

Given these facts, we were able to document and argue a successful case of extreme hardship on the client’s behalf.

These cases are not easy to win but we have extensive experience in arguing the particular circumstances for each client.

This will be life changing for this young man and his family.

I-601A: How Psychological and Financial Hardship affect an approval

Friday, December 09, 2016 | Last Updated: October 6, 2016
by admin

We would like to share one of our many I-601A success stories. Our clients, who we will call Patrick and Adriana to protect their privacy, came to our office for a consultation earlier this year. We assessed their case and decided that they would be excellent candidates to apply for an I-601A waiver. We filed for their I-601A Waiver petition in February 2016 and we received their approval on August 2016.

Background
Adriana, a Mexican citizen, came to the United states in 2004. She entered without inspection in search of a better life for her and her children. She met her U.S. citizen husband Patrick in 2005 and they married in 2006.

Patrick had recently suffered though the loss of his first wife due to Leukemia in 2003. During the year that his first wife spent at the hospital before passing away, Patrick was by her side. While he watched his first wife’s health rapidly deteriorate he developed thanatophonia—an abnormal fear of death, where he began to experience severe anxiety and debilitating panic attacks. The loss of his first wife permanently altered his mental and psychological state.

After the passing of his wife, Patrick was a single father to his five children and also held a full time job causing his anxiety and panic attacks to become more frequent. When he met Adriana in 2005, she was like an answer to his prayers. Her kindness and generosity helped him get through his panic attacks and deal with his loss related psychological issues. Upon their marriage, Adriana took Patrick’s five children as her own. She gave up her job to take care of the children full time, allowing Patrick to focus on his job to support their large family. Adriana brought a balance to Patrick’s life—a financial and emotional balance.

Approach
Our first step after taking on this case was to establish and prove that if Adriana’s I-601a waiver were denied, Patrick (as the U.S. citizen spouse) would suffer extreme hardship. We immediately set out to gather and collect evidence to support our case.

We worked closely with Adriana and Patrick to collect medical records to establish that Patrick would suffer emotionally and psychologically if Adriana were not allowed to remain with him in the United States. We also collected and analyzed substantial financial documentation to prove the financial hardship to Patrick in the event that Adriana were forced to return to Mexico—this included evidence to prove the financial hardship Patrick would suffer if he were forced to either quit his job to take care of his five children or be forced to have to pay for the full time child care for all five children.

While this case had particularly good facts to support it and we were confident from the beginning that we would obtain a waiver, here at the Ranchod Law Group we also take on more challenging cases. We work closely with our clients to identify all potential hardships and present that best case possible.

Schedule a consultation with us, we’ll analyze your case and walk you through the process to success. Call now (916) 613-3553
