Client: Adult Male U.S Citizen, Married to Non-U.S Citizen Wife
Wife’s Country of Origin: Somalia
Case Type: I-485 Adjustment of Status (Based On Marriage to U.S Citizen)
Date of Application: May 21, 2014
Date of Interview: September 23, 2014
Date of I-485 Approval: September 24, 2014
Our client, a U.S. citizen, retained Herman Legal Group’s family immigration lawyers in Columbus, Ohio to secure immigration status for his Somalian wife.
Permanent resident status based on marriage to a U.S. citizen is a contingent result that requires proving a genuine marriage. Careful documentation and expert legal assistance are important to achieve a successful outcome. In addition, it is uncommon to see approval of both I-130 immigration petition for alien relative and I-485 application of adjustment of status (green card application) granted on the same day.
Herman Legal Group helped prepare the couple for their interview by clearing misunderstandings and clarifying expectations with immigration officials. We helped our client prove the marriage was bona fide and the result of love and trust.
One day after a successful interview with immigration officials, our client’s wife was granted permanent residence status (green card).
