History of Procedure
- Client entered the U.S. illegally in 2004
- Married a U.S. Citizen – together the couple had two U.S. citizen children
- Client returned to Mexico in 2010 to care for a sick relative
- Client’s U.S. citizen spouse filed an I-130 immigrant petition for client and as soon as client was denied at his immigrant interview abroad (had previously entered and remained in the U.S. illegally)
- We filed client’s I-601 waiver
- Client’s wife has a family history of cancer
- Client’s family had been having a very hard time financially since his departure relying on payday loans and barely getting by
All of this extreme stress was taking a serious toll on the mental health of client’s U.S. citizen wife. Also, client’s wife could not relocate to Mexico to be with her husband because she has other children from a prior relationship who live in the U.S. USCIS issued a request for evidence and we replied in great detail with additional paperwork supporting the case we already established.
Client will finally be able to reenter the U.S. legally as a lawful permanent resident to be with his wife and children. Even if a client previously did not have legal advice, we can help client’s correct previous mistakes. Although it is best to hire an immigration attorney from the beginning, we have experience working with clients at all stages of the I-601 waiver approval process – our results speak for themselves.
