Attorney Mooradian's client, a long-time resident of the United States, recently received citizenship at the Lawrence Field Office of USCIS. His client came with questions about a misrepresentation allegation on his immigration record from many years ago. Mooradian conducted a FOIA request and reviewed the entire alien file to determine what, if any, effect the misrepresentation might have on naturalization. Knowing that naturalization requires a finding of good moral character, whereas permanent resident status is issued as a matter of discretion, it could not be assumed that the misrepresentation would have no impact whatsoever.
Mooradian reviewed the record and found that inadmissibility had been waived, and thus this issue cured, by a previous USCIS officer. Mooradian made note of the mirepresentation on the N-400 to avoid any allegations that his client was misrepresenting the incident further. The officer understood the previous officer's actions had cured the question, and naturalization was granted. The client was sworn in as a United States Citizen the same morning of the interview, and he now enjoys the benefits of a U.S. Citizen.

Mooradian's client, a young man from Guatemala, recently received his ten-year permanent resident card such that he can remain in the United States with his spouse and U.S. Citizen daughter. The client faced complications when his initial marital relationship broke down.
The client intended to travel internationally within two weeks of his inquiry to USCIS, however, the agency indicated that a Tier 2 officer would not be available for a call back until 30 days later. Mooradian was able to negotiate for a call back within five days, at which time he was able to schedule an InfoPass appointment.
