Immigration Cases

1. My office represented a Portuguese national who was married to a U.S. citizen. Despite that she had several misdemeanors in Portugal for shoplifting (a crime of moral turpitude rendering her inadmissible) we filed a  I-601 Waiver application and said application was approved without any RFE. Client obtained her green card at the Consulate in Lisbon Portugal. 

2. My office represented a woman from Japan who married a U.S. Citizen. During the first year of the marriage, her husband verbally abused, ridiculed and demeaned her to the point that she left the marital home and filed for divorce.
