Immigration Status of Client’s Relative Reinstated for Humanitarian Concerns
Client: U.S. citizen sister
Location: Cleveland, Ohio
Case Type: I-130 Petition for Alien Relatives (Brother)
BACKGROUND: Our client retained us to secure an immigration status for her brother. Though her brother is an eligible relative, something else complicated the case. A previously approved I-130 petition of alien relatives lost effect due to the demise of sponsor. Thus, her brother lost his status. It just happened so that timing of losing status triggered a bar or difficult technicality. This case is of its own kind and rare to see.
Date of Initial Approval: November 13, 003
Date of Application for Reinstatement: July 10, 2014
Date of Reinstatement: September 10, 2014
WE HELPED OUR CLIENT prove that her petition should be reinstated for humanitarian reasons, because both she and her brother are the few close relatives in old age and lived through harsh days of the Cold War. Namely, we helped our client present this relative immigration case as a crisis of its own kind a simple reinstatement could solve. Fortunately, the best outcome occurred. Our case was approved based on humanitarian concerns beyond the four corners of each page of written law.
IN THREE MONTHS, our client’s petition for alien relatives was approved.
