I-360 and Adjustment of Status for Juvenile

Mooradian's client, a juvenile from South America, was recently granted special immigrant juvenile status and a related adjustment of status to that of lawful permanent resident.  The child fled to the United States with his mother following protracted abandonment by his father and in seeking educational opportunities. The child had been denied a public education in his country of origin due to learning disabilities. Following a hearing in the Worcester Probate and Family Court, the judge ordered, among other findings, that the child had been neglected and abandoned by his biological father and that it would be in his best interest to remain in Massachusetts versus return to the country of origin.  With that order in hand, Mooradian filed the special immigrant juvenile visa together with an adjustment of status (the child was not from a visa capped country), which were both readily approved by USCIS.  The child is now able to remain in the United States permanently with his mother and pursue an equitable education here in Massachusetts.
