Waiver in Removal Proceedings
Caring for Those Who Cared for Us
Patricia or Patty, age 72 and of Filipino ethnicity, entered the United States to take care of her US Citizen parents who, in their 90s, had many age-related medical conditions. Patty was at risk of being removed from the United States due to visa overstay and misrepresentation since she represented herself to be a green card holder at the time she applied for admission into the United States. In January 2014, she availed the assistance of Madrid-Crost Law Group. MCLG successfully won Patty’s case by passionately assisting her in filing with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services an application for lawful permanent residency based on Patty’s approved immigrant petition, and at the same time file an application for waiver of grounds of inadmissibility and extreme hardship. Patty’s US citizen parents’ age and health conditions were considered to be an extreme hardship. Thus, in May 2016, Patty was granted lawful permanent residency and received her green card. Patty together with her parents now happily live reside in Illinois.
