- February 02, 2015 I-140 Approved for Professional Cricket Player
Azhar & Azhar Law Firm recently secured the approval of an I-140 petition in the EB-1A category (alien of extraordinary ability) for a cricket player from Nepal who is currently competing professionally in the US. The applicant captained the Nepal Under-19 national cricket team, had several match winning performances, including centuries, in many national level tournaments, competed internationally on behalf of Nepal, and has already been regarded as one of the best players on the U.S. national cricket circuit.
After two rounds of RFE’s including merit based and procedural issues regarding how professional cricket is viewed in the U.S., attorney Noaman Azhar was ultimately able to overcome USCIS’s concerns and earn the I-140 petition approval for our client. Our client will now apply for U.S. permanent residency and train and compete with the hope of being selected to play on the U.S. national cricket team.
- January 26, 2015 – O-1 Visa Approved for Professional Bull Rider
Noaman Azhar recently secured the approval of an O-1 visa as an alien of outstanding ability in the field of athletics for a professional bull rider from New South Wales, Australia. Our client has been competing professionally in the field of bull riding since 2005. He was previously an Australian rookie bull riding champion, an Australian bull riding champion (the top bull rider in all of Australia) and has enjoyed a top 50 world ranking since competing professionally in the United States. Our client has been featured in several national rodeo magazines in the United States and his home country of Australia. With his newly approved status, he will now be given the opportunity to compete professionally in the U.S. for the next 3 years with the goal of winning a world championship in the field of bull riding.
- 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.
