FAMILY BASED IMMIGRATION CASE STUDIES:

Case Study 1: I-130  Petition endless wait with a happy ending.

 Brief Facts of Case:

Client filed a prosepetition. His petition for his father was denied as the documentation provided was found not to be sufficient. USCIS found that Client had not established legitimization (that he was born after his parents marriage or otherwise legitimated). This denial meant that one parent could not join Client and his family in the US.

 Kasturi Law, LLC Approach:

We filed a new I-130 petition with primary, secondary forms of evidence. We provided substantial arguments to make our case for bonafide relationship.

 Results:

Within 6 months the petition was approved and now the parent can work towards completing consular processing and be with the Client.

 Our Experience:

It is important to make sure that the attorney you are hiring is invested in the case (no matter how big or small) and is a unrelenting advocate for the case.

 Brief Facts of Case:

Client had filed a I-130 petition for her husband and husband and filed for his green card. They got a Notice of Intend to Deny for the I-130 petition because USCIS did not believe that this was a bonafide marriage despite them being married for 3 years plus. They came to see Shobhana Kasturi about responding to the NOID.

 Kasturi Law, LLC’s Approach:

Shobhana put together a comprehensive response that the relationship was valid and bonafide one. This meant making an argument based on the joint assets/liabilities, tax filing, family interactions and family attestation of the validity of the marriage. Shobhana sought out an explanation for the discrepancies pointed out by USCIS and also utilized case law to zealously advocate for her client.

 Results:

Eight months after the NOID response was filed, the I-130 and I1485 (green card application) were approved.

 Our Experience:

Every case deserves to be heard out. Often when USCIS points out discrepancies in a case, there are logical explanations. Having an attorney who inquires about the details to make for an effective argument is essential when dealing with immigration related matters.
