Our firm recently represented an immigration case involving a husband and father who had been detained by Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) and was scheduled for removal from the country. Our client had originally entered the U.S. back in 2007 on a B-2 visitor’s visa, however he had let his status lapse. While he is married to a U.S. Citizen and the two have a child together, our client also had a prior order of removal in absentia for failing to appear at an earlier immigration hearing, which he had not known was taking place.
This prior removal order resulted in him being detained by ICE shortly after we filed a Form I-130, Alien Relative Petition on his behalf. We then wasted no time in filing a motion to reopen based on his lack of knowledge of the prior hearing, his pending I-130 petition and an imminent eligibility to adjust status.
Our hard work resulted in the motion to reopen being granted and we are proud to say that we are currently working with immigration officials to get our client released from detention so that he can be back with his family and proceed with his adjustment of status.
Attorney Tamar Jones is representing this client and said, “The granting of the motion to reopen was a great outcome for this family! I’m glad he has another opportunity to seek permanent relief here in the U.S. and remain with his family.”
