Approved Petition for Client Convicted of a Felony

May 30, 2013 in Attorney Blog

Felony ConvictionI just obtained USCIS approval in interesting and difficult case in which the American petitioner was in jail for Felony Robbery.

One of the greatest practical difficulties in the case were the prison rules. For example the USCIS requires passport size photos of the petitioner, but the prison did not want to allow my client to get these photos taken. Additionally it was difficult for me and the foreign fiancee to communicate with the petitioner due to the prison rules.

Nonetheless I was persistent in working on the case and to everyone’s delight the case was approved and I look forward to seeing my clients get married. I took this particularly difficult case because I could see that the petitioner and beneficiary were very much in love.
