We then proceeded to seek discovery in the divorce to show that her husband was abusive and that the marriage was legitimate. We then filed a petition based on the battered spouse provisions under the Immigration and Nationality Act. In the middle of this, our client was served with criminal allegations of truancy relating to her minor son. We had the charges dismissed. After the approval of the petition, the a resident admission application was filed and approved. Our client is now divorced and has received her permanent residency. Result by Mr. Mathur.
Criminal Case Reversed & Deportation Win:
June 29, 2004
Client pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary of a vehicle with 360 days punishment in jail. A writ of habeas corpus was filed in the criminal court to reverse the plea of guilt. The writ was GRANTED and the pleas were undone. The criminal cases were subsequently reduced and the immigration case won by Mr. Mathur based on extreme hardship and eligibility for cancellation of removal as the criminal cases were no longer "Aggravated Felonies" under the immigration laws. Result on both criminal and deportation by Mr. Mathur.
  • Thank you so much for your hard work and effort getting me out from the jail time and legal mess. You are like God to me for giving me new life. Thank you so much!
