FAMILY BASED IMMIGRATION CASE STUDIES:
Case Study 1: I-130 Petition endless wait with a happy ending.
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.
We filed a new I-130 petition with primary, secondary forms of evidence. We provided substantial arguments to make our case for bonafide relationship.
Within 6 months the petition was approved and now the parent can work towards completing consular processing and be with the Client.
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.

Case Study 2: I-751 LIFTING OF CONDITIONS IMMIGRATION CASE STUDY
Positive results for an immigrant who had suffered abuse.
Client came to see Shobhana about being able to lift the conditions on her conditional green card. This was a difficult case as it was short duration of marriage and the documentation for the abuse was scarce.Client had already suffered a lot and was not sure what to do as she had no family here. Shobhana provided her with a detailed checklist for documentation, discussed the need for third party evidence to corroborate the events and also remained positive that there was hope.
We went ahead filed the I-751 application with extensive legal arguments regarding bonafide relationship and extreme abuse Client had suffered.
I-751 petition was approved and client was able to get her 10 year green card. and work towards rebuilding her life in the US.
CONSULAR PROCESSING CASE STUDIES:
Case Study 3: Happy ending for a 4 year and her family.
Client filed a I-130 petition via Kasturi Law, LLC. The petition was approved for her step-child. However at consular interview the case was put in administrative processing as the US consulate was not convinced that a bonafide relationship existed between petitioner and beneficiary and also between petitioner and biological father of beneficiary..
Our approach was to provide additional substantive documentation to support the contention that the I-130 petition was correctly approved by USCIS. Shobhana also sought out congressional advocacy right from when the case when into administrative processing. She pursued the natter with the congressional office.
After 4 months the Immigrant Visa was approved and the 4 year old child can be reunited with her family in the US.
It is important to hire an attorney who is a zealous advocate and who explores all routes to ensure there is a positive result.

With in 2 weeks of submission, the case was approved and now Client has his green card and so does his derivative family. The decade long wait for this family has ended.

Case Study 5: 290B Motion to Reopen Leads To Approval Of Green Card:
Client’s wife had filed an I-130 and he had filed a I-1485 petition for adjustment of status. His case was denied because he had failed to provide certain documentation.. They came to see Shobhana Kasturi about their options.
Shobhana discussed their options to refile the case or file a motion to reopen. She put together a comprehensive response and filed a 290B motion to reopen based on new documentation that could be provided to USCIS for consideration. The motion was comprehensive and the documentation complete and timely submitted.
The 290B motion was granted, the case opened and finally the I1485 (green card application) was approved.
Details matter and providing the correct documentation to USCIS matters. Having an attorney who can provide an effective solution when the correct documentation was initially not provided, can make a big difference.

Case Study 6: REINSTATING OF F1 STATUS
Positive results for an non-immigrant who had fallen out of F1 status.
Client came to see Shobhana about responding to a RFE as it relates to reinstating their F1 status.This was a very difficult case as USCIS made a strong case that this there were prior status violations and the client had not met the burden of establishing financial support to fund future studies.
Shobhana in discussing the case with the client was able to figure out that the status violations were not as a result of the fault of the client and warranted USCIS to exercise discretion in this case. When responding to the RFE supporting documentation was provided to make this case and also to establish that the client had more than ample financial support to fund future studies.
The I539 petition was approved and the client was able to reinstate their F1 status.
It is important to make sure that the attorney you hire knows how to approach the case, knows what documentation is needed, and knows how important it is to be supportive of the client.
