Another win for the Law Offices of Brian D. Lerner

Client, represented by her previous attorney, received a 6-page denial of her application for adjustment of status, with various allegations, including marriage fraud.  Our office, under a short deadline, prepared a motion to reopen arguing that there was no fraud and that our Client was eligible for adjustment based on her TPS status and her father’s I-130 petition.  Client can now remain in the U.S. with her husband and children, and can apply for naturalization in 5 years.

BIA Rules on Requirements to Adjust Status Under the Legalization Provisions of INA §245A

In a precedent decision issued today, the BIA held that a noncitizen seeking to acquire lawful permanent resident status through the legalization provisions of INA §245A must establish admissibility at the time of adjustment of status under §245A(b)(1). The BIA also held that a noncitizen who was inadmissible at the time of adjustment of status from temporary resident to permanent resident under INA §245A(b)(1) was not lawfully admitted for permanent residence, and is therefore ineligible for a waiver of inadmissibility under former INA §212(c).

The court also found that the IJ did not commit any legal or constitutional error in exercising discretion to deny adjustment of status.
