I-485 approved for clients’ whose case had been pending since 2006 because of the petitioner’s criminal record. In 2013, the case was erroneously denied by USCIS for failure to respond to a request for evidence and reopened by our office in 2014. USCIS then attempted to revoke the petitioner’s I-130 as a result of his convictions, first through a Notice Intent to Revoke and then through an Amended Notice of Intent to Revoke. Each time our office responded, arguing that the petitioner was eligible to petition his wife and if necessary, eligible for a waiver under the Walsh Act. 10 years later, the case was finally approved.
