July 3rd, 2019
The following client success story is an example of how with the appropriate legal representation, a person can have a marriage petition and a Green Card approved, even if they had a prior failed marriage residency petition and past criminal charges.
John was born in Ghana and entered the United States with an F-2 visa in 2002 when he was 14 years old. He enjoyed living in the United States and wanted to remain here for the rest of his life, but he had overstayed his visa and his options were now limited.
When John was 20 years old, he met Nancy through his mother. They began to build a relationship based on common interests, such as movies and basketball. They fell in love and got married, excited to begin their lives together. Nancy, who was a U.S. Citizen, petitioned for John to become a Lawful Permanent Resident, and everything appeared to be on track. However, things began to fall apart when Nancy lost her job and she turned to drugs and alcohol. John did his best to help Nancy through this crisis. They moved into his mother’s house so that they could worry less about financial issues and focus instead on their marriage, but the relationship fell apart and after over 3 years of marriage, Nancy and John divorced.
