- January 23, 2015 – Immigration Judge Grants Permanent Residency 20 Years After Client’s Arrival
Our client, a citizen of India, arrived in the US in 1991 as a visitor. His employer filed an I-140 for him in 2007, but it was denied by USCIS, so he was referred to immigration court proceedings. Client hired Furqan Sunny Azhar to represent him in deportation proceedings. Sunny convinced the government attorney and judge to administratively close his case until client’s US citizen daughter turned 21. When his daughter turned 21, Sunny filed an I-130 for client via the daughter, which was approved, and after 20 years in the US, client was finally able to become a permanent resident when the judge granted his I-485 application.
- December 31, 2014 – DACA Approved After Denial From Notario
Our client, a citizen of Mexico, had come to the US when he was just 2 years old. He applied for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals through a notario, and USCIS denied it. Client hired Furqan Sunny Azhar, who re-filed the application with a detailed cover letter outlining client’s eligibility, along with additional proof of client’s presence in the US. USCIS finally approved the application after an RFE, and granted the work authorization for 3 years.
- December 8, 2014 – 212(e) 2-Year Foreign Residency Waiver Approved Based on Hardship
Our client, a citizen of Jordan, came to the US to complete a residency program as he was a foreign medical graduate. He married a US citizen and then had a US citizen child. Furqan Sunny Azhar filed the J-1 waiver with the US State Department (DS-3035) and USCIS (I-612), and both were approved. The waivers were based on Jordan’s country conditions and the client's financial hardship, but most importantly, the wife’s severe allergy condition and the child’s Microcephaly, a medical condition characterized by an abnormally small head.
- November 24, 2014 – O-1 Approved for Karate Practitioner
Although USCIS recently changed their guidelines in adjudicating O-1 visa applications, making it increasingly difficult for professional athletes to come to the United States in O-1 status, attorney Noaman Azhar secured an O-1 visa for our client, a professional karate athlete who currently trains in Irving, Texas. Noaman was able to prove that our client qualified for the O-1 as he had secured multiple Gold Medals at national and international competitions in India and internationally. He is a 5th Degree Dan Black Belt in Karate and has won several national karate competitions as well as several Gold Medals in India. Our client will now train to compete for a Gold Medal at the USA National Karate Championships as well as in international competitions throughout the world.
- November 17, 2014 – Client and Wife Become Permanent Residents After Asylum Approval
Our client, a citizen of Nepal, came to the US as a visitor. He changed status to a student and then to L-1A, and finally he applied for asylum. The asylum application was referred to court, and the judge granted the asylum application after Furqan Sunny Azhar and the government attorney came to an agreement on the case. The judge was initially concerned about whether our client had filed his application within 1 year of arriving in the US, but after hearing oral arguments from Sunny and the government attorney, the judge agreed to approve the case. An I-730 was then filed to bring client’s spouse to the US, and both are now permanent residents.
