Danger in Zimbabwe, Motion to Reopen Granted

After her arrest, her family hired Mathur Law Offices, P.C., After review the case Mr. Mathur determined that an “out of time motion to reopen” could be filed due to changed country conditions. The facts showed that anti-opposition forces burned down Ms. C’s house in Zimbabwe early in 2008. Later in 2008 U.S. immigration officials took Ms. C into custody to deport her back there. The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) was persuaded by evidence of the destruction of the family home and the State Department’s human rights report of politically motivated kid-napping, torture, and murder.

Conviction Disclosed, U.S. Citizenship Granted
April 17, 2009

Mr. M had failed to disclose on his petition to remove conditions from his green card that he had a criminal conviction.

CIS was persuaded, and approved his naturalization application! Result by Mr. Mathur and Mr. Humble.

Deportation Stopped, Case Reopened and Dismissed
April 13, 2009

Our client was first placed in deportation because of a domestic violence conviction. Our client was previously represented by another immigration firm in town. Due to mis-communication between the client and his old law firm, the client failed to show for Court and was ordered deported. Our client was arrested by immigration and was about to be put on a bus to Mexico. We contacted the lead lawyers for immigration and detention and removal to have the client released while we tried to reopen the case. We argued to immigration that the basis for deportation was invalid due to a change in the law. Immigration agreed to reopen the case and let our client go. Once the case was reopened in court, we move to dismiss the case and get our client’s residency back. The immigration judge agreed and dismissed the case and the client has got his resident alien status restored. Result by Mr. Mathur.

TSA Violation Overcome, Naturalization Approved
March 31, 2009

The kitchen knife in Mrs. V’s carry-on bag was accidentally put there in haste, as she and her husband were moving from New York to Texas. Airport security stopped them. Mr. V took responsibility for it, and was fined. His past also included some traffic tickets. Would this hurt his application for U.S. citizenship? Mr. Mathur advised them about the regulations relating to good moral character, 8 CFR 316.10(a)(2), which take into account the elements enumerated and the “standards of the average citizen in the community of residence.” Four months later, a CIS District Adjudications Officer approved Mr. V’s case. Turns out, the officer himself had also been stopped for having a carry-on bag with a knife! Result by Mr. Mathur and Mr. Humble.

Immigration Judge Reversed
March 24, 2009

Our client had a deportation case based on hardship to his children. Our client had been illegal for over ten years but in his trial he attempted to show that he was a person of good character and that exceptional hardship would occur to his U.S. citizen daughter if he was not allowed to stay. Due to his failure to pay taxes each year, the Immigration Judge asserted, using strong words, that he would never allow the client to stay. The case was appealed to the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). The BIA agreed that the IJ was unfair and that did not give our client a fair hearing. The BIA reversed the IJ’s decision and ordered that the case be sent back to be re-tried before a new Immigration Judge. Result by Mr. Mathur and Mr. Hussami.

USCIS Withdraws Denial and Grants Citizenship
March 10, 2009

Mr. L was denied citizenship in October 2008. USCIS denied based on lack of good moral character, citing five traffic violations including several for driving with a license invalid. We argued that these violations had no basis for a denial based on moral character as they were not crimes involving moral turpitude. Moreover, that many people in society of good moral character are cited for multiple violations of traffic laws. After the administrative appeal was heard, USCIS withdrew their original decision to deny the case and approved our client’s citizenship. Result by Mr. Mathur and Mr. Humble.

Felony Reduction and Deportation Win
March 06, 2009

Our client was put in deportation proceedings for felony theft. The case involved the professional sports jerseys. The case was in the local news media. After months of working with prosecutors on the case, we were able to get his felony case reduced to a “petty offense” as defined by immigration law. Through this criminal felony to misdemeanor reduction, we were also able to file for his immigration status without issues to his admissibility. We used an old petition filed by his uncle to his mother to allow for the paperwork to be filed in immigration court. We convinced the immigration judge that our client’s visa petition filed by his wife, in conjunction with his uncle’s old petition and the misdemeanor reduction allowed our client to get his residency in the U.S. The immigration judge agreed and our client was admitted to the U.S. as a resident rather than being deported. Result by Mr. Mathur.

We timely appealed and the Board of Immigration Appeals ordered the IJ to take another look at this case. Mrs. J was released from DHS custody, as the litigation is ongoing. Result by Mr. Mathur & Mr. Humble.

Citizenship Denial Overturned

Reopening by Board of Immigration Appeals
December 01, 2008

Our client married his wife in deportation proceedings. His claim was that he could stay in the U.S. and adjust his status through his spouse. After being in immigration court, our client was later charged with a felony theft offense in Tarrant County, Texas. The immigration judge refused to allow our client time to have his visa approved and continue his case. An appeal was taken of the judge’s decision. During the pendency of the appeal, we fought the felony theft and had it reduced to a misdemeanor. The ultimate conviction fell under the petty offense exception under immigration law. We showed the appeals court that our client was “admissible” to the U.S., his marriage to his wife was bona fide and that the immigration judge was wrong in not continuing the case.

Our client was represented by a competing large immigration firm with offices in Dallas, Houston, Chicago and Austin. The firm has several Associate Attorneys. The client believed that the representation she had with this firm was ineffective. One of the firm’s attorneys reportedly advised her to withdraw her case before the judge, resulting in her voluntary deportation on her trial date. After doing so, she felt that this advice was wrong and came to our firm to reopen the case. We filed the motion to reopen with the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) based on ineffective assistance of counsel. The BIA GRANTED the motion and our client’s case is now back open for her fight to stay.

We investigated the case and found that our client had failed to show-up for a immigration court proceeding in Louisiana about two years ago. We filed a motion to reopen the case with the court in Louisiana. Despite being technically out of time in filing the motion, the Court GRANTED the motion based on the re-marriage because we proved that immigration had failed to update our client’s address when they sent him notice of court. After the case was reopened, we file and application for bond redetermination before the Immigration Court in Dallas, Texas.

After hiring our firm, we were able to have our client released. Thereafter, we found that he had been here over ten (10) years and had a U.S. Citizen child. We also had evidence that the child suffered from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Deportation Win
September 17, 2008

Our client, a Canadian, was married to a US Citizen many years ago. After filing immigration paperwork through her husband and having residency granted on a conditional basis, she later divorced. Not realizing that she needed to remove the conditions, she later re-married and then did not attend to her expired status. After many years, she left to go to Canada on vacation. Upon leaving she triggered a legal bar to re-admission under 212(a)(9)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. Officers at the border allowed her to seek inspection in Dallas, Texas. After many complications, it was determined that she was subject to a ten (10) year bar. There was also the obstacle of allowing her legally back in so that she could file residency applications before the immigration judge. After a long effort by our office, we were able to get the border patrol to allow her in legally and get the immigration judge to waive the ten (10) year bar based on hardship to her family. The immigration judge also granted her permanent resident status based on her marriage to her second husband. Result by Mr. Mathur.

Deportation Win
August 26, 2008

Client hired our firm after his application for NACARA and asylum had been denied. Client's case was later heard by an Immigration Judge in Dallas, Texas.

On appeal it was argued that the Immigration Judge did not clarify his decision as regards the asylum. The appeal's court, Board of Immigration Appeals, agreed and sent the case back to the Immigration Judge. Once the case was back in the immigration court, it was argued that the criminal cases in California had now been dismissed as the client had rectified those cases. Further, that the criminal case in Texas did not make our client ineligible for NACARA, as it fell within the petty offense exception. The opposing counsel for Department of Homeland Security and the Immigration Judge agreed. About two and one-half years later, our client was given NACARA relief and adjusted to a permanent resident by the Immigration Judge.

Our client’s waiver was GRANTED and he received his permanent residency before the immigration judge. Result by Mr. Mathur.

The judge granted our motion to dismiss the deportation case. Result by Mr. Mathur.

Deportation Win
April 01, 2008

After being denied based on marriage fraud, our client came to our office in desperate need. His current U.S. citizen wife who he shared children with had her petition for his visa denied.

As such, they could deny the new marriage due to a penalty provision in the law. Our client was put in removal proceedings, at trial it was shown that USCIS had made their decision in error. The finding of fraud was not founded in fact or in law. The immigration judge overturned the USCIS finding and approved the application for residency filed for our client. Result by Mr. Mathur
