An individual who is afraid to return to his or her home country for fear of persecution (fear of being hurt, wrongfully accused, jailed, targeted) may file an application for asylum on Form I-589 with USCIS DHS Immigration. This application can be filed by someone who was previously persecuted and even by individuals who may not have been previously persecuted but who now fear future persecution. How do you prove it? In a perfect situation, a client will show up with a video tape of them being persecuted and with documentary records of the persecution. However, in the real world that’s not how it works. In many cases, clients have nothing except their word. Immigration law does allow for situations where a person’s statement alone, if credible, can be enough. I attached a picture of an approved asylum, which was approved at the initial stage by the Asylum Office DHS Immigration .
I filed application USCIS FORM I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions on Residency. The application was denied. Is there anything that could be done now?
There are several options when Form I751 is denied. I will not get into the specifics of all the options that are available because the Option that is picked should make the most sense in light of the reason for the denial. However I will briefly say that one of the options can be to refile the I751. When the application is denied however USCIS DHS will usually serve a Notice to Appear in Immigration Court, which essentially amounts to efforts by the federal government to deport/remove the person. It is important to know that the Immigration Judge assigned to the case will get another opportunity to look at the application Petition and decide whether the Immigration Judge agrees with the denial or whether the application should be approved.
I filed for a green card based on my marriage. I have an interview scheduled with DHS USCIS Immigration at 26 Federal Plaza, Ny Ny. What should I expect to happen?
Any marriage based application will require an interview before an Immigration Adjudication Officer. These interviews are usually done at the local immigration office. Ordinarily, when a couple shows up for an interview, they submit their appointment notice. Thereafter the couple usually waits in a waiting Room to be called. That is probably a good time to get your paperwork in order here if you want to make sure you have the original of certain documents as well as updated evidence that would show a joint life. You also want to make sure that evidence of your relationship through photographs have been properly prepared. When the couple is called in by an immigration officer for the interview, they are usually escorted to a room for the interview. The officer will the request the identifying documents such as the passports and other crucial original document such as the birth and marriage certificates. It is also a great idea to pay attention to the instructions of the officer, at some officers will clearly state that stay doing want any communication between the applicant and beneficiary.
