Only four weeks passed from the time we began collecting evidence and putting together our application to the receipt of USCIS approval of a last-minute U.S. performance tour. The band will be making it to their first show with time to spare!

USCIS denied my client’s marriage petition and accused him of lying about his marriage. He came to me and we fought the denial – the Board of Immigration Appeals agreed with me and has forced USCIS to consider his petition again! The battle is not over but now we have the chance to undo the mistakes that were made before I got involved in the case and convince USCIS to approve his petition and grant him permanent residence.

A young peruvian man will soon be reunited with his U.S. citizen wife despite a previous deportation and criminal offenses.
The couple came to Hessel Law after trying to get the waivers approved on their own – despite the previous denials, I was able to have both waivers approved within a few months. We had to get creative in looking at how his wife’s religious faith would limit her ability to leave the U.S. or to live without her husband. This, in combination with some medical issues we had to dig deep to evidence, strengthened the waivers and allowed me to see them reunited soon – just in time for the holidays!
