Client: U.S. Citizen Parent of Minor Adopted Child from Uzbekistan
Client’s Country of Origin: Uzbekistan
Case Type: I-130 Immigration Petition for Alien Relatives (Child)
Date of the Second Denial: April 2, 2009
Date of our Appeal: May 1, 2009
Date of Remand: October 25, 2010
Date of Approval: January 21, 2011
After two denials, our client retained Richard Herman and his team of expert immigration lawyers in Cleveland to secure immigration status for her minor daughter who was adopted before her marriage with a U.S. citizen.
We helped our client:
- Convince the Board of Immigration Appeals to remand the case back to U.S.C.I.S.
- Prove that her relationship with her daughter, adopted before marriage with a U.S. citizen, qualified the daughter for immigration benefits.
In less than three months after the case was remanded, our client’s adopted daughter was granted immigration status based on her mother’s marriage with a U.S. citizen.
“What my wife and I really liked about the firm was that Richard and Charmain were always thinking about our case and what was the best for us, and this approach is what ended up helping us immensely. Our case was a very complicated I-30 involving an adopted child from the former Soviet Union Republic. The case was previously denied twice, then we hired Richard and his firm and they made all the difference in the world. The firm was compassionate, caring, and at the same time aggressive when they needed to be. Herman Legal Group is an immigration firm that we have recommended to many of our international friends and we will continue to do so in the future.”
