Celebrating the Approval of a Marriage-Based Green Card: A DACA Recipient's Journey to Legal Permanent Residency

At Barrera Legal Group, we are thrilled to share a heartwarming success story that exemplifies the power of love, perseverance, and the American dream. Today, we celebrate the approval of a marriage-based green card for one of our clients—a former DACA recipient who has overcome numerous challenges to secure legal permanent resident status through marriage to a U.S. citizen.

This journey began with our client, who came to the United States as a child and later sought the help of Barrera Legal Group to apply for his DACA status. Despite the uncertainties and obstacles faced by DACA recipients, our client remained determined to build a future in the country he has always called home. When he met and fell in love with a U.S. citizen, he realized that marriage could provide a pathway to stability and security.

However, navigating the complex immigration system can be daunting, especially for individuals with DACA status. That's where Barrera Legal Group stepped in to provide guidance, support, and expertise every step of the way. We worked closely with our client and his spouse to prepare a strong marriage-based green card application, ensuring that every detail was meticulously addressed to maximize the chances of success.

One pivotal moment in this journey was when we also helped our client apply for granted advanced parole—a special permission that allowed him to travel outside the United States for humanitarian, educational, or employment purposes. This travel on advanced parole proved to be a game-changer, as it enabled our client to qualify for adjustment of status to legal permanent resident upon his return.

Today, we are overjoyed to announce that our client's application for a marriage-based green card has been approved, marking the beginning of a new chapter in his life as a legal permanent resident of the United States. This success story not only underscores the importance of love and family but also highlights the invaluable role of experienced legal representation in achieving immigration goals.

At Barrera Legal Group, we specialize in a wide range of immigration services, including family-based green card cases, humanitarian relief such as asylum, U-Visas, and VAWA-based relief, as well as defending clients in removal and deportation proceedings. Additionally, through our relationships with expert business immigration law firms, we assist clients with Treaty Investor Visas, work visas, and green cards based on employment.

If you or someone you know is facing immigration challenges or seeking assistance with any aspect of the immigration process, don't hesitate to contact us. Our team of dedicated attorneys is here to provide compassionate support and expert legal guidance every step of the way.
