April 8, 2024, Approval of the Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative

Unlocking New Beginnings: Navigating the I-130 Approval and Beyond

We are thrilled to share a monumental step forward for one of our clients, a testament to the power of family, perseverance, and the American dream. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has officially approved an I-130 petition for a client based on her relationship with her U.S. Citizen daughter. This approval is not just a piece of paper; it's a beacon of hope, symbolizing the first step towards reuniting families and building a future in the United States.

The Journey Ahead

With the I-130 approval in hand, our client is now poised to embark on the next phase of her immigration journey. The National Visa Center (NVC) will be her next stop, where she will apply for the immigrant visa. However, the path is not without its hurdles. Our client faces a significant challenge due to a period of unlawful presence in the United States. But there is a silver lining – the possibility of a waiver.

The Waiver Process

Understanding the complexities of immigration law, our client will apply for a waiver of the 10-year bar using the stateside waiver form I-601A. This waiver is crucial for those who have faced the tough decision to remain in the U.S. unlawfully, often due to circumstances beyond their control. By demonstrating the extreme hardship her legal permanent resident parents would suffer, our client can make a compelling case for the waiver's approval.

The Final Steps

Once the waiver is approved, the National Visa Center will coordinate the scheduling of a consular interview at the U.S. Consulate in our client's country of origin. This interview is a critical component of the process, determining the final approval for the immigrant visa.

Why This Matters

This journey is more than just navigating the complexities of immigration law; it's about families, dreams, and the pursuit of a better life. Our client's story is a powerful reminder of the resilience and determination that defines the immigrant experience. It also highlights the importance of having knowledgeable and compassionate legal representation every step of the way.
