Chinese immigrant married in jail receives a Green Card

Final order of deportation leads to jail

We were retained by a Chinese client on February 10, 2011. Our first meeting with the client he was not in jail.  He came to the United States on April 12, 1994 and had an old case back in January 1995 which was denied, which gave him a final order of deportation. At the time we met, he was single, but he had a US citizen child and was planning to get married with his US citizen girlfriend. He was initially picked up by ICE and sent to the jail, where he had to serve 90-days. During this time we helped him and his U.S. citizen girlfriend get married on February 24, 2011.

I-130 and I-485 filings lead to happy ending

MWW & Associates LLC filed an I-130 and I-485 on the marriage-based GC case on March 03, 2011. Two weeks later, we received RFE from USCIS and client’s fingerprint notice. We sent RFE on April 29, 2011 and he was called up for I-485 interview in September, 2011. On December 27, 2011, he received conditional green card that is valid through December 2013. We are currently waiting for filing I-751 that is eligible for him to file in August 2013. He is very excited that he can stay in the US with his lovely family.
