08.19.2021 US WITHDRAWAL FROM AFGHANISTAN We may be able to help Afghan nationals come to the US
https://www.state.gov/u-s-refugee-admissions-program-priority-2-designation-for-afghan-nationals/
On August 2, 2021, the Department of State announced a Priority 2 designation granting U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) giving access to certain Afghan nationals and their eligible family members.
This is in addition to the Special Immigration Visa (SIV) for certain Afghan nationals. To qualify for an SIV, an Afghan national needs to show a job which involved working closely with the U.S. military for at least a year. In limited situations, the job requires a specific timeframe (Oct. 7, 2001, to December 31, 2014).
The P-2 designation has made the job qualifications broader and those jobs do not necessarily have to show work with the U.S. military for any minimum time in the job.
The 3 categories that qualify for the P-2 designation:

  1. Afghans who do not meet the minimum time-in-service for a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) but who work or worked at any time as employees of contractors*, Locally Employed (LE) Staff, interpreters/translators for the U.S. government, United States Forces Afghanistan (USFOR-A), International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), or Resolute Support;
  2. Afghans who work or worked at any time for a U.S. government-funded program or project in Afghanistan supported through a U.S. government grant or cooperative agreement*;
  3. Afghans who are or were employed in Afghanistan by a U.S.-based non-governmental or media organization.
Please be aware that:
  • There is no resettlement processing in Afghanistan and certain neighboring countries such as Iran. If/when you and your family make the difficult choice to leave Afghanistan, you will need to arrange and pay for your own travel to a third country.
  • Once you have arrived in a third country, you must contact the U.S. Department of State to begin processing your case. Case processing can be lengthy (potentially 12-14 months), so please be aware that this process could require living in and supporting yourself and your family in a third country for a substantial amount of time until case processing is complete.
  • Even if you qualify for the P-2 program and travel outside of Afghanistan, there is no guarantee that you will be approved for resettlement to the United States. In particular, applicants must pass extensive security checks.
  • The United States is unable to provide protection or support to you while you await a decision on your refugee case. If you leave Afghanistan, you can register for international protection and assistance as a refugee with the government of the country you are in, if the country has an established asylum process; or, you can register with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).
This article is not legal advice. The law is complicated and each case is different. Speak to one of the immigration lawyers at Svetlana Schreiber & Associates to see if you qualify for this or other immigration benefits.

07.29.2021 We often counsel people to try as hard as they can to stay in the US as long as possible because immigration laws are so fungible. They change daily. The current change in administration has been like opening the shutters in a dark house and letting all the light in. Today we were visited by one of our most unfortunate clients. This man has a 10 year old boy who has muscular dystrophy and has an undocumented wife whose kidneys have completely shut down. She is on dialysis 3 times a week. He was being represented by another attorney when he came to us 3 years ago, facing a deportation trial just 3 months hence. The situation was bleak. He did not have 10 years in the US when he was apprehended by ICE and put in deportation proceedings. His previous lawyer filed for asylum. However, his asylum case did not have any chance of succeeding. It was clear that he could not leave the US. We eere able to help obtain DACA status, but this still didn’t solve his deportation problems. He could not abandon his then 7 year old USC son and leave his extremely ill wife in the US. Neither son nor wife could accompany him to Mexico where they would not have proper medical care. 3 years ago, SCOTUS issued a decision in Pereira which would give them a solid opportunity to stay in the US. Several months later, the Trump administration effectively upended the decision, dashing his hopes. We fought on. We kept his deportation case alive. Two months ago, SCOTUS issued another decision reviving the Pereira decision. SCOTUS went further in Niz Chavez, issuing a decision that as of this date had terminated numerous deportation cases. Our client’s chances of receiving a green card have been revived. This is why you should not let your lawyer convince you to opt for Voluntary Departure unless you have a visa with which you can immigrate to the US immediately.

07.26.2021 One of the attorneys in the office was successful in a VAWA application which lingered for many years. A VAWA application is available to a person who married a US or an LPR spouse and who suffered abuse during that marriage. The abuse can be physical, psychological or emotional. If you’re in a marriage and are experiencing such abuse, please know that you can leave the marriage and still get a green card. In a similar situation, we recently had succeeded in getting a case in which the husband was the victim of chronic psychological and verbal abuse during the marriage. Often in these situations, a person will stay in the marriage, at great physical and psychological risk just to get the green card. VAWA gives the victim the option of leaving the marriage.

07.21.2021 We recently were able to obtain VAWA approval for a client who had a very complicated immigration history. He EWE’d into the US and subsequently married his current wife. They sought the assistance of a lawyer, who advised them to get divorced as he was going to have to go back to his home country to get his green card (see above). They divorced and he went back to his home and had an interview. At the interview, the consular officer uncovered that he had been in the US illegally for more than a year and told him that he needed a waiver. Instead of filing the waiver, our client and his divorced wife decided to come back to the US illegally. This triggered a 2121(A)(9)c penalty. When the client approached us, his wife was very difficult, very stubborn, very controlling and so we tried to ascertain if he was, indeed the victim of psychological abuse .Once we confirmed that he was the victim of abuse by this wife, we filed a VAWA application which was approved today. We expect to terminate his removal hearing under Niz Chavez.

07.17.2021 If your spouse or adult child is currently serving in a branch in the US military or has previously served and is now a Veteran, you may well be able to apply for the special immigration status of Parole In Place or PIP. This benefit is granted by the Immigration Service and it has three benefits: it gives you deferred action and protects you from being deported.; it gives you work authorization and it is viewed as an admission to the US for the purpose of filing a green card application. Thus a person who EWE’d into the US (entered illegally) can apply for a green card, either through a petition filed by a US spouse or a US adult child without having to leave the US. This offers opportunities for people who otherwise cannot get a green card. Remember, that if you entered the country illegally under most circumstances, you have to return to your home country. Leaving the US triggers a 10 year bar to returning. The only way to ask for a waiver of this penalty is to show that your USC or LPR spouse or parent will suffer extreme hardship if separated. Most of our clients do not have a USC or LPR spouse or parent and cannot avail themselves of such a waiver. Thus people who can apply for PIP have get a benefit from having a military family member.

06.11.2021 Our Middle Eastern client married a USC and was trying to get his green card, based on marriage to his USC wife. Although everything was approved, the government charged him with being a terrorist, and as a resul of the terrorist bar,( arguing that his membership in a guerrilla group that was fighting the Hezbollah was a terrorist organization and subjected him to the bar). Our office was able to prove that the said bar did not apply as this clandestine organization, which was in fact, aligned with the US and that fighting against the Hezbollah was counter terrorism. Our client was able to prevail and he was granted his green card.

06.10.2021 Today a Mexico mother of 3 children was granted cancellation of removal by the Immigration Judge. We are so proud of the work of our associates. This Mom was able to convince the EOIR that the rape and abuse she suffered from her husband was nothing compared to the fear she had of taking her 3 children, all of whom have severe learning disabilities and would have no special accomadations in Mexico. The children would suffer extreme hardship if the mother were to be deported.

06.09.2021 Our client, a producer of an environmentally friendly product attempted to hire a foreign engineer to help with operations in the US. We were trying to do an NIV application, arguing that our client had extensive experience to man the work at the Cleveland production facility. When we actually started the work, the employees accreditations were unacceptable and we had to struggle to prove that the company’s work was in the Nationl Best interest and that the workers qualification met the necessary requirement. We succeeded.

06.08.2021 Another Middle Eastern client who was referred to us by an Islamic social service agency has been facing immigration problems arising out of CIS’s accusation that he had entered into a fraudulent marriage succeeded in reversing that situation and we got him his green card. We are so pleased. Ensalah!!

06.07.2021 Courts drowning in backlog pose lingering immigration challenge

06.02.2021 U.S. formally ends Trump’s 'remain in Mexico' asylum policy

05.13.2021 Yesterday was an excellent day! We were able to stop the deportation of a mother of 3 US citizen girls, ages 16, 12 and 7. While it may appear conclusive that the US government would act in the best interest of children, it does not do so in immigration matters. It is difficult, nearly impossible to stop the deportation of a parent, unless the child has an extremely serious medical condition, one that is a matter of life and death, such as, say, cancer. Yet, with tireless and systematic preparation, at the conclusion of a long 2 day trial, we were able to convince the Immigration Court to grant our client the relief. As a result, she will become a permanent resident and raise her children with no further threat from Immigration Authorities. I was joined at the trial table by two stalwart associates. We won!

05.12.2021 She thought she was adopted. Now, her fight to stay in the US is just beginning.

05.10.2021 Our office has been successful in receiving approvals of T visas with work authorization within one year. These visas are for employees who have been victimized by their employers either by not paying them their wages, threatening to call immigration on them, forcing them to work long hours without properly pay and withholding their immigration documents as a threat.
DACA travel is back and we are sending approved DACA recipients back to visit family in their home country.

05.06.2021 On Apr 29, 2021, the Supreme Court made an important immigration decision. The name of the case is “Niz-Chavez v. Garland.” To understand what this decision means, you have to understand “cancellation of removal.”
Before the government can deport an undocumented immigrant, the immigrant usually has the right present his or her case to an immigration judge. That person may stay in the US if he or she qualifies for certain immigration benefits. Some of those benefits lead to a green card.
One of those benefits is "cancellation of removal." It is hard to get, but one thing an immigrant needs is to live in the country for ten years *before* his or her immigration case starts in the immigration court.
The case with the court starts when the government gives the immigrant a document called a "Notice to Appear." It is similar to a subpoena because it tells a person they have to go to immigration court to stop their deportation.
The Immigration and Nationality Act makes it clear that the NTA must have the date and time. That is an important point.
The US Supreme Court has decided two cases about this point. The first time was in 2018, “Pereira v Sessions.” The Court said that an NTA is not valid if it doesn't have a date and time. This meant that a lot of people who did not live long enough in the country long enough to qualify for cancellation of removal suddenly had enough time.
After that case, the people in charge of the immigration courts made new rules saying if the court sends papers *later* with the date and time, that makes the NTA valid. This meant that a lot of people who were eligible for cancellation of removal were suddenly ineligible again.
The Supreme Court’s new decision says that's wrong. The NTA is invalid if it does not have the date and time, and the court cannot fix that by sending other papers with the date and time. Once again, more people may be eligible for cancellation of removal.
This is a major win for immigrants all across the country. Many people who have no legal status may now be eligible for this immigration benefit. This may lead to more immigrants getting a green card in the future.

This article is not legal advice. The law is complicated and each case is different. Speak to one of the immigration lawyers at Svetlana Schreiber & Associates to see if you qualify for this or other immigration benefits.

04.28.2021 DACA travel good news. It is well know that entry to the US during COVID was severely restricted. One of our clients had difficulty trying to enter US on an approved U visas, despite the very generous and ameliorative U visa rules. However, another immigration client, who has approved DACA was able to reenter the US after a short trip to Mexico. He desperately wanted to see his dying father. We were able to obtain advance parole but cautioned him that he may not be allowed back into the US, even with the approved I131. The good news is that he traveled and was allowed to enter at customs. He will still have to travel to the Consulate to process his approved immigrant visa, as the AG had reversed Matter of Arrabally

03.08.2021 When our wonderful legal assistant, Zeynoon Elassal, whose family owns the much loved, Felafel Cafe http://www.falafelcafecleveland.com/ becomes the subject of the immigration story we tell. https://www.msn.com/.../lolas-legacy-how.../ar-BB1e891E... This is why we do what we do!

03.01.2021 We just got a U visa approved for a person who was a victim of menacing incident. He was sitting in a car with 3 other people, when a stranger came up to the car and smashed the car with a baseball bat. We successfully argued to the Immigration Service that the attack on the car with a bat was the same as being threatened with a bat, and hence threatened with assault with a weapon. The case was approved. A person who is a victim of a crime in the US can file for a U visa, if the police certifies that the victim cooperated with the police in the investigation of the crime and the crime is a qualifying crime under that statute. An felonious assault is defined as an assault with a weapon. A person has to maintain U visa status for 3 years, after which they can apply for a green card.

02.24.2021 Biden Revokes Trump’s Pause on Green Cards

02.16.2021 President Biden has sent an Immigration Reform bill to Congress that is very expansive. It proposes the following:

  1. The bill allows undocumented individuals to apply for temporary legal status, with the ability to apply for green cards after five years if they pass background checks and pay their taxes.
  2. Dreamers, TPS holders, and immigrant farmworkers who meet specific requirements are eligible for green cards immediately under the legislation.
  3. After three years, all green card holders who pass additional background checks and demonstrate knowledge of English and U.S. civics can apply to become citizens.
  4. Applicants must be physically present in the United States on or before January 1, 2021.
  5. The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may waive the presence requirement for those deported on or after January 20, 2017 who were physically present for at least three years prior to removal for family unity and other humanitarian purposes.
  6. Lastly, the bill further recognizes America as a nation of immigrants by changing the word “alien” to “noncitizen” in our immigration laws

01.19.2021 Joe Biden’s immigration plan lays out path to citizenship
The Biden/Harris plan, if it becomes law, will have an eight-year pathway to actual citizenship, not just green card. It will put millions of qualifying immigrants in a temporary status for five years and then grant them a green card once they meet certain requirements such as a background check and payment of taxes. They would then be able to apply for citizenship three years later.

Options for someone who has come to the US on a student visa and wants to stay permanently.

It is important to maintain status in order to move from visa to visa. If you are interested in remaining in the US permanently, it would be best for you to maintain your status. With a student visa already approved, you have to merely enroll in school in the fall to maintain your I20 currnet. Check with your DSO.

We will discuss the H1B, the U visa, a H visa, O visa and employment based green card.

  1. The H1B visa, available to people with a 4 year degree who have an offer of employment in a position that requires a 4 year degree to do this, you need a qualifying sponsor. The visa is available for a part time job as long as both the applicant have, and that the job require a 4 year degree.
  2. The U visa is available if you or one of your children were a victim of a crime. Domestic violence is a qualifying crime. The crime has to have been reported to the police.
  3. The O visa is available to people with extraordinary ability. For example, if you have worked as an artist has been reviewed and that you have had several exhibitions. It is not uncommon to ask people who have access to help generate some press. Equally important are letters of opinion from recognized experts. So you could ask some of you professors to comment as to your abilities and hopefully friend can also comment. Since these cases are adjudicated on the paper submission, the more letters we have the better. It is possible that we could file the O by August, and that would preclude your having to go to school to maintain status.
  4. Lastly the green card requires that you have a sponsor, either an employer or a family member. So you could marry a USC or greencard holder, that person becomes the petitioner. Perm application initiate the process with the DOL and then the case moves to CIS. This is most likely the best option. As long as both parties sincerely believe that the process is bonfide, it does not require you to continue to work for employer after greencard.

Our stories

07.31.2018
For the past 15 years I have both the honor and privilege of working with immigration clients from around the globe. It is through my immigration work here at Svetlana Schreiber & Associates that I have come face to face with the hardships, trials, and tribulations that our immigration clients and their families face on a daily basis. Their escape from terrible sufferings in their home countries, to being hounded in the US while all they are looking for is a chance to live safely and hopeful to obtain green cards, or some other form of permission to stay here permanently, safe from the harrowing dangers of their own countries.

The recent immigration raid in Sandusky, Ohio was no exception. A news story which only existed in print for most folks, directly affected me in my work and tragically showed me again, the direct impact of such raids on our clients, and on their families.

One such client’s father was arrested by ICE two days after his High School graduation. He is only 18 years old and on DACA. When he and his family came crying into our office we immediately set out to help them. His future of going to college in August was in limbo. The family used all his college savings to help pay his father’s bond and help support his mother and two younger siblings. He started working 17 hours a day to make sure he was keeping up with their monthly bills. His family, friends, pastor and local church members worked hard to get us the documents needed to get the father out on bond. This was a community that came together to help each other. This is the American way. As I sat with him in my office I reassured him that we would get through this together and his dream of going to college was in reach. Our office was successful in getting his father a bond. We hope that we will be able to help this family immigrate and get green cards.

How the client should contact the firm for details about consultation (fees, schedule, etc.)

Consultation-what does it mean?

A consultation is a meeting between an attorney(s) and potential client(s) for the purpose of examining their situation, and discussing what the best possible course/option to take is. Consultations are completely confidential, and the attorney cannot disclosure any information given. Along with confidentiality, there is no obligation for the potential client to hire the firm after the consultation.

Why a consultation is important?

  • It is absolutely necessary for anyone with an immigration issue in the U.S. to discuss what possible directions they can take.
  • It establishes position of potential client, different options, and examines each individual case.
  • Allows attorney to gain knowledge/facts to suggest best course of action to take.
  • Allows for any questions the potential client might have to be answered by attorney
  • Can be a place to establish a client/attorney trust relationship

What forms of consultations are available?

  • In office consultation: FREE
  • Over the phone: $100 paid in advance. The conversation can take anywhere from 30-60 min. or as long as needed for attorney to get substantial information

How to prepare for a consultation?

  • Potential client should be completely honest and forthcoming about their individual situation. Remember the firm is here to help you, and confidentiality protects you from attorney disclosing information. Any piece of information may be beneficial to your case.
  • Please bring any documents that may be involved with your case; immigration forms, current status, paycheck stubs, etc.
  • If the client does not speak English, although we have employees in the office that do speak other languages, it might be helpful for them to bring along someone who can translate for them.
    (we have Arabic, Romanian, Spanish, German, French, Hungarian, Czech, Slovak, Russian, Hindi, Urdu, Maithili, Bangla, Macedonian, Serbo Croatian and Albanian speaking staff.)

Svetlana Schreiber and her staff are my heroes! I adopted two undocumented teenagers at age 12 and 14. Little did I know it would be so complicated to get their legal status here! After talking to another lawyer who told me I would have to have the adoption recognized by the Mexican government ("and good luck with that," she said!), I spoke with Svetlana who impressed me with her knowledge and expertise. The issues were how long the children had legally been under my guardianship (it had to be two full years), and how the children had entered the country (to determine whether or not we would have to process in Juarez Mexico or not). Svetlana obtained a statement from the school district, a government entity that recognized me as their legal guardian even before the adoption took place, and we obtained detailed affidavits from family members in Mexico as how they were transported through an immigration checkpoint in the back of a car when they were 3 and 5 years old. The children now have their green-cards! Now I can apply for their US passports because as minors adopted by a US citizen, they are automatically eligible to become citizens! Thank you Svetlana (and staff) for all your hard work!!!

I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. Svetlana Schreiber in an appointment scheduled throughout the phone. First i would like to thank her. I have been advised by a large number of attorneys over the years regarding my immigration status and absolutely none of them has been really trying to understand my problem and most importantly to find a solution for it. I have always wanted to meet that attorney that will no longer say that there is no solution for me and the answer for now is patience. And I finally have found that person that said I have been wasting way too many years hiding behind my fears and encouraged me to make a step in a changing direction. You will find in Mrs. Schreiber not only a knowledgeable and eager attorney, but an encouraging and supporting people person and I strongly recommend you to establish your first connection with her and dare to dream bigger!

I am delighted that everything in my immigration case everything worked out so well. I attribute the success to the fact that Svetlana Schreiber had the talent to identify the strength of education and experience (PhD in Geography) and to make recommendations all through the process to the final step (the green card). Overall, the attorney’s office prepared all the documents for my case and prepared me for everything that I had to have to expect, step by step on this process. Also, the office was very responsive and communication between the law office and CIS and between the office and the company which sponsored me was immediate and attentive. Each time that CIS requested more information, Svetlana’s office responded timely with greatly detailed documentation.

So, it is entirely due to the quality of service offered by the office of Svetlana Schreiber & Associates that I was able to get my green in such a short time (17 months after arriving in the US to attend a professional conference). They proved that they know exactly what I need to get my permanent resident status and they knew what they have to do for me to get it in such a short time. I am forever grateful.

Immigration Judge granted asylum to female from Egypt based on her sexual orientation. The Immigration Judge argued that to send someone back to such a religiously conservative country with such strong animosity towards homosexuals would be tantamount to torture. The Court also granted the client's mother withholding of removal arguing that her alleged compliance with her daughters sexual orientation would put her at risk

Client from Tanzania granted asylum based on the murder of her parents for allegedly practicing witchcraft. We were able to demonstrate to the court that the alleged practice of witchcraft in sub-Saharan Africa is still widespread and alleged witches / traditional healers are often persecuted for any and all maladies which befall the community. In the present case, the client was in the United States when both parents were killed at the hands of a angry mob. We demonstrated that despite the client's own religious convictions, she would be perceived as a witch herself.

Immigration Judge granted asylum to Egyptian women who conceived a child out of wedlock. We successfully argued that such an action would be perceived as a stain on the petitioner's family honor which could lead to her being targeted by members of her own family. Arguing that a women's virtue is of paramount importance to her status within Egyptian society, we convinced the Court that to return the unwed mother and child to Egypt would place both at serious risk of harm.

Asylum grant for woman from Pakistan who had been the victim of extreme domestic at the hands of her husband. The client's husband, a police officer, had extensive ties to both the local and national political parties within Pakistan and had no fear of prosecution for the actions taken against his wife. The client, who was repeatedly raped and beaten by her husband had no chance of finding protection within Pakistan. Worst yet, the Petitioner's son had also been targeted by her husband.

Approval of K2 visa after client mother and husband had divorce. Mother and son came to the United States from the Ukraine. Mother was granted her greencard, her son, initially was not. We convinced the Service that based on the abuse both the mother and son had endured at that hands of her USC husband, the USC petitioner's affidavit of support for the issuance of the visa was ultimately not necessary.

Motion to reopen granted in proceedings after we convinced the Court that the previous attorney erred in withdrawing the Petitioner's asylum case as being time barred. The Petitioner, who was a minor at the time, erroneously had her Asylum application withdrawn by her previous attorney who failed to realize that an asylum application filed by a minor cannot be time barred under 8 CFR 208.4(a)(5)(ii), 1208.4 (a)(5)(ii). The case is currently pending before the EOIR Court.

Motion to Reopen granted after proving client clearly did not receive notice of his immigration hearing. Client entered the United States in 1996 on his border crosser card and was granted permission from the Service to travel outside of the Border area to visit friends and family in to Detroit, Mi. While in Detroit, the client was stopped and confronted by Immigration Officers. The client explained to the Officers that he has a legal entry into the USA and that his Border Crossing card was at his friends house. The Officers he encountered apparently did not believe him and (understandably) assumed he was here in the USA illegally. During his custody, the client was asked for his biographic information, and biometrics were taken. After the Officers had fingerprinted him, they acknowledged that he was listed in their system as the holder of a valid Border crosser card, however the Officers served him with certain documents and told him that he was allowed to leave. They informed him that he would receive notice in the mail at the address given.

The client resided at the address for nearly a year During the time he never received any notice from either the immigration court or the immigration services regarding his case. The client assumed that the Service was able to corroborate the fact that he was who he claimed to be, did have a valid Border Crosser card and was in valid status when detained by the Service. The client subsequently moved to Toledo, Ohio and married his USC wife in 2005. In February 2009, client met with us to discuss filing for his greencard. At that time, the client explained what had previously happened with the Service. Counsel checked the 600 telephone number using the Alien number listed on his border crosser card, the only Alien number he thought he had, to see if he was ever placed in proceedings. According to Court records, he was never in proceedings under the Alien number listed on his Border Crossing card. Despite this, the client was ordered removed October 1997. We successfully argued that, from the record, it was clear that he never received notice of his prior hearing and thus did not have adequate notice of his previous hearings. The client's I-130 was approved and he is awaiting his greencard appointment.

Motion to reopen proceedings granted for client for Sri Lanka who originally failed to attend his Immigration Master Hearing in New York City after his train into the city was delayed for roughly two hours due to mechanical failures. The client originally filed an appeal of the Immigration Judge's denial of his case with the Board of Immigration Appeals. Using the repair / work records for the train line that day, we argued successfully that the client's failure to attend his Immigration hearing was clearly beyond his control and the Court was in error for ordering him removed.

Immigration Judge granted cancellation of removal to LPR placed in proceedings because of a firearms conviction. Client is the spouse of a USC and father of five USC children. The Immigration Judge grant means that the client will keep his LPR status and be able to remain with his family. Client was convicted for having his gun stored in the wrong place in his car. This conviction subjected the client to both removal from the United States and mandatory detention by immigration until his case was heard by the Immigration Judge. While you do not have to be a citizen to own a gun, it is not a good idea to have one. Immigration law holds that any and all gun related offenses are a deportable offenses. This is why our client was in jail facing deportation for having his gun stored improperly. Luckily, the client met the basic criteria for cancellation of removal, which include 5 years as a permanent resident and 7 years of physical presence in the United States, and was able to show that the positive factors outweighed the negative factors in his case.

Immigration Judge granted permanent resident status to disabled client with approved VAWA petition.

Immigration Judge grants Motion to Reopen In Absentia Order for client, who arrived late to court because of road construction and street closings. Client was coming from Columbus to Cleveland for court. He left Columbus more than 4 hours before his hearing to account for traffic issues. Unfortunately, as he approached Cleveland, major road construction kept him from reaching the city in time. Then, once in the city, a major event that had a number of city streets closed also kept the client from reaching the court. In the end, the client showed up 5 to 10 minutes after the Immigration Judge had already issued the order. Fortunately, the Immigration Judge recognized that these issues were outside the client's control and the Immigration Judge reopened the case.

Immigration Judge grants Motion to Reopen old In Absentia Order that no one realized existed. Client was in proceedings and Immigration Judge terminated proceedings with consent from government attorney based on approved VAWA petition. At client's adjustment interview, officer asked her if she knew she had an In Absentia Order from the 90's. She said no as she did not know about the order. Apparently, client had been picked up during a workplace raid after she first arrived to the United States. However, immigration released her right away without giving her any documents because she had young children. At the time the client initially encountered immigration in the 90's, she did not speak or understand English. She had no idea what was going on and the immigration officers that had taken her along with the other people working at the factory did not speak her language fluently. Therefore, when immigration released her, the client did not know that immigration was going to seek to deport her. Moreover, immigration did not take her information down correctly, so none of the documents issued by immigration reached our client. With no knowledge or notice of the fact that she had to go to court, our client did not appear at her court hearing in the 90's. Moreover, when immigration placed her proceedings in 2007, no one discovered the old case. It was only after the client's fingerprints were ran for her adjustment and a more detailed background check was ran that immigration discovered the prior case file and the old order. After receiving the information from the immigration officer, our office immediately sought to review and acquire a copy of this old file. We, then, filed a motion to reopen in order to clear this outstanding matter, so our client could get her permanent resident status. Based on the fact that there was clearly no notice to the client, Immigration Judge reopened the old case.

Immigration Judge granted 237(a)(1)(H) waiver for client, who mistakenly believed he could marry after he received his immigrant visa at the consulate, but before entering the United States. Client's father had petitioned for him as an unmarried son. Client did not understand that the process was not complete until he actually arrived in the United States and that, by marrying, his immigrant visa was no longer valid.

Immigration Judge terminated proceedings for mother and two children after we succeeded in obtaining U classification for family.

We succeeded in closing a book with immigration for a client, who after 20 years, finally obtained citizenship. The client had been through it all. He had taken voluntary departure at one time. He came back on an Immigrant Visa. He ended up back in proceedings based on a conviction a number of years later. He was ordered deported by an Immigration Judge. His case was successfully reopened. He, then, filed for several forms of relief and, after a long battle, he was found eligible and was granted Cancellation of Removal. After his grant of cancellation, he waited several years to make sure he met the requirements for citizenship and, this year, he was sworn in as a citizen.

Won appeal from denial of naturalization for a client and client was sworn in as a citizen after a nearly two year struggle with Immigration because of ex-spouse's fraud.


Lawrence O'Donnell On Immigration

Why we do what we do ?
by Michele Norton Immigration Attorney at Svetlana Schreiber and Associates

Everyone,
I know how frustrated and stressed out we all get over our work, especially as it seems to be never ending and more and more complicated.
Every once in awhile I get a good reminder as to why I have chosen to practice immigration law and these reminders keep me going.

Today, I received a call from Monica. She is a young girl that was brought here from Mexico by her mother when she was only 2 years old. She has lived her entire life in the United States. Her mom remarried a USC when she was a small child and, while he tried, he did not know how to solve his wife or stepdaughter's issues.
The family came to us after Monica and her mom were placed in proceedings. Unfortunately, I could not help the mom. However, I was able to help Monica. Her dad adopted her and filed an I-130 petition on her behalf. The I-130 was approved (after fixing a blunder by the Service) and I had Monica take voluntary departure before she started accruing bad time in the United States.
She left and obtained her immigrant visa in Mexico at the end of 2010. While in Mexico, she missed a semester of her senior year of high school.
Monica made up her missed time in one semester and graduated with her high school class today. She called to thank me and to tell me she graduated and to also tell me that she got accepted to Xavier College with scholarships. She also is getting her driver's license and has a job lined up for this summer.
Monica is so thankful to have her life here as it is the only life she has ever known. Moreover, her life is going in the right direction. Monica is a sweet, smart girl and I wish her the best for her future.

And, Monica is why I do what I do and why we should all do what we do.

Michele
