Adopted Child from Uzbekistan Received Status
Client: U.S. Citizen Parent
Nationality of Minor Adopted Child: Uzbekistan
Location: Cleveland, Ohio
BACKGROUND: AFTER TWO DENIALS, our client retained us to secure immigration status for her minor daughter, who was adopted before her marriage with a U.S. citizen.
Date of Second Denial: April 2, 2009
Date of Our Appeal: May 1, 2009
Date of Remand: October 25, 2010
Date of Approval: January 21, 2011
WE HELPED OUR CLIENT— first, convince Board of Immigration Appeals to remand the case back to U.S.C.I.S.; and second, prove that her relationship with her daughter adopted before marriage with a U.S. citizen qualified the daughter for immigration benefits.
IN LESS THAN THREE MONTHS, AFTER THE CASE WAS REMANDED, our client’s adopted daughter was granted an immigration status based on her mother’s marriage with a U.S. citizen.
“What my wife and I really liked about the firm was that Richard and Charmaine were always thinking about our case and what was the best for us and this approach is what ended up helping us immensely.
Our case was a very complicated I-130 involving an adopted child from a former Soviet Union Republic. The case was previously denied twice, then we hired Richard and his firm made all the difference in the world.
The firm was compassionate, caring and at the same time aggressive when they needed to be—Herman Legal Group is an immigration firm that we have recommended to many of our international friends and we will continue to do so in the future.”
