Deportation Prevented, Waiver Approved, Client now Allowed to Enter the United States

Our client is a native of India and citizen of Canada. He is married to a Canadian citizen and has two Canadian citizen children. He is the owner and operator of a successful fast food franchise.

Sixteen years ago he was admitted to the United States using a photo-substituted passport. Thereafter, he came to the attention of the immigration authorities. We represented him in the Immigration Court proceeding and obtained a grant of Voluntary Departure on his behalf, and obtained extensions until he became landed in Canada five years ago.

Our client is inadmissible to the United States for life because of his entry fraud and for 10 years from the date he departed for unlawful presence. As a result, our client needs a waiver to enter the United States as a visitor for both business and pleasure.

We prepared an application for a nonimmigrant waiver of inadmissibility, submitted our legal brief in support of the application, as well as documentation showing his acceptance of responsibility for his actions, his rehabilitation, and that there would be no risk of harm to the United States if he were admitted.

The application was approved by the Admissibility Review Office located in Hearndon, Virginia, which is part of U. S. Customs and Border Protection, a sub-agency of the Department of Homeland Security. Our client is now eligible to come to the United States temporarily to conduct business, or as a tourist.
