Relative Immigration Status Granted to Indian Parents
Nationality of Client’s Parents: Indian
Location: Cleveland, Ohio
Case Type: I-130 Immigration Petition for Alien Relatives (Parents)
BACKGROUND: Our client retained us to secure immigration status for his parents. We then proceeded to file standard I-130 immigration petition for alien relatives and orphans. This case, perhaps because not marriage-related, was approved later than most of our I-130 alien relatives immigration petition cases (typically approved within one year).
Date of Application: December 30, 2002
Date of Approval: August 2, 2004
WE HELPED OUR CLIENT prove his evidenced child-parent relationship. Namely we helped clients prove that his parents are eligible relatives (parents, spouses or siblings). The underlying challenge remains similar as with other cases– veracity as the case appeared before skeptic readers, fatigued by heavy reading load.
CHALLENGE: The substantive issue at heart of many immigration cases is constant. Our task essentially is the same for cases of marriage green card, fiancee visa or this case in particular. We helped our client prove that the claimed parents are in fact and in good faith the real parents of our client. Therefore, these real parents are entitled to immigration status through proper procedure.
Again, documentation determines the ultimate strength of your case. The petition is meant to persuade by visible and understandable facts, not just to make a case. Pictures, in general, tend to be better than mere words. Affidavit may help. Please understand however, anyone, in the mind of immigration officers, may take oath and write something. Thus, document everything proving the relationship at question. The better is your evidence, the stronger we can make your case. Our best efforts will present the best available argument, as your evidence allows.
ABOUT A YEAR AND EIGHT MONTHS LATER, our client’s alien relatives petition was approved and reunited with her parents.
