Legal challenge:

Our client was placed in deportation proceedings for failing to marry his wife within 90 days of entering the United States, pursuant to the terms of his K-1 visa. Our client was not eligible to adjust his status in the United States. Action Taken: In Immigration Court, Chicago Immigration Advocates convinced the judge to give our client voluntary departure so that he can return to the United States, this time on an immigrant visa based on marriage. Following our client’s departure, Chicago Immigration Advocates submitted applications for an immigrant visa and a waiver for his illegal presence in the United States based on the extreme hardship of his citizen wife and child. Result: US Citizenship and Naturalization.
