Marriage Green Card: a Family to Stay Together
Client’s Nationality: Jordan
Location: Cleveland, Ohio
Case Type: Marriage Green Card, I-485 Adjustment of Status based on Marriage to U.S. Citizen
BACKGROUND: Our client retained us to secure approval for permanent residence on behalf of her husband, midst chaotic job changes.
Date of Application: April 25, 2011
Date of I-360 Approval: June 2, 2011
Date of I-485 Approval: February 12, 2013
WITH OUR HELP, our client produced a convincing case, with a cosponsor and common finance.
AFTER SEVERAL CHANGE OF JOBS, COSPONSORS AND FOUR HEARINGS, our client secured the permanent resident status for her husband.
CHALLENGE: Marriage green card cases may appear straightforward, but turn out to be the contrary. Aside from showing that the marriage is in fact, as far as the truthful evidence can demonstrate, the result of mutual love and trust, the sponsor spouse must also demonstrate the ability to support another spouse, or their combined income must exceed the legal minimum. In this case, frequent job changes makes it hard for an otherwise settled case unable to be finalized in a timely manner. We helped our client prepare material for each hearing and guided them through the hassle of frequent hearing. Our joy has always been to see genuine immigrants achieve their American dream– a new life together in the U.S.
