26 Aug Motion to Reopen Removal Proceedings Granted by Immigration Judge
Our client is married to a United States Citizen who filed an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative on his behalf. He simultaneously filed an I-485 Adjustment of Status Application with the I-130 Petition. Our client and his wife experienced marital difficulty and she withdrew the I-130 Petition. Our client was placed in removal proceedings and requested voluntary departure from the Immigration Judge which was granted. Our client and his wife were never divorced and did everything possible to reconcile their marital difficulties. Our client and his wife did in fact reconcile their marital difficulties and she filed a new I-130 Petition for Alien Relative on his behalf. Following the filing of the new I-130 Petition our law firm filed a Motion to Reopen our client’s removal proceedings within 90 days of the voluntary departure grant. The removal proceedings were reopened by the Immigration Judge and a new Master Calendar Hearing scheduled.
