- December 13, 2016 – I-601 Approved for Indian National Who Was Inadmissible for Fraud
Our client, a citizen of India, had sponsored her father, who was in India. He was denied the immigrant visa though because the last time he was in the US, he was found to have worked without authorization and misrepresented information in order to get a visit visa.
Sunny Azhar was filed an I-601 waiver of inadmissibility for him by arguing that his wife, who was a permanent resident in the US, had a significant medical condition that required his presence in the US, and his absence from the US therefore resulted in extreme hardship to her.
USCIS accepted these arguments and approved the waiver of inadmissibility.
- December 8, 2016 – I-140 Approved After USCIS Issues RFE for Single Source Degree
Our client filed an I-140 for one of his employees who graduated with an AS degree from a school in Pakistan and a BS degree from a different school in Pakistan. USCIS issued an RFE requesting evidence that the beneficiary had obtained the equivalent of a 4-year bachelor’s degree from a single source.
Sunny Azhar sent evidence to USCIS that both degrees were obtained from affiliated schools and therefore the degree qualified as a single source degree. USCIS approved the I-140 after having received the RFE response.
- November 16, 2016 – I-140 Approved for Pakistani National Despite Employer’s Tax Returns
Our client, a citizen of Pakistan, had an approved ETA 9089 PERM application. When it came time to file the I-140, it was revealed that the employer’s net income on their tax returns was below the proffered wage. Sunny Azhar then obtained evidence of the employer’s bank balance for the last 12 months, and successfully argued that this was credible evidence of liquid assets that could help to prove the ability to pay the proffered wage. The I-140 was then ultimately approved.
- November 10, 2016 – Adjustment of Status Granted for Couple Who Were out of Status for 16 Years
Our clients, citizens of Nepal, had overstayed their status in the US 15 years ago. Noaman Azhar represented their employer and completed an EB-2 PERM and Sunny Azhar obtained an approval on the I-140. The wife was 245(i) eligible based on a 4th preference sibling petition so both of them were able to file for adjustment of status, despite their visa overstay.
- August 15, 2016 – Court Case Terminated After 8 Year Battle
Our client, a citizen of Nigeria, was a permanent resident and was convicted of offenses that the government believed made him removable from the US. Sunny Azhar challenged the client’s removal from the US, but after hearing arguments from both sides, the immigration judge still ordered the client removed.
Sunny appealed the immigration judge’s decision and the Board of Immigration Appeals reversed the immigration judge’s decision and sent it back to the lower court for reconsideration. Meanwhile, the DHS attorney agreed to terminate the client’s case, in light of the new case 5th Circuit case law regarding assault.
