Siblings, Abandoned by Father, Receive Orders

Mooradian's clients, teenagers from South America, recently received the necessary predicate findings from the Probate and Family Court such that they may move forward in their petitions for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status. The clients, who had been abandoned several years ago by their biological father, had arrived in the United States over 4 years ago. They fled political and street violence that they had experienced in South America.  Now that they are enjoying relative safety in the United States, they petitioned the Court for a Judgment of Dependency pursuant to M.G.L. c. 119 §39M, as well as special findings of facts and rulings of law.

Following a brief hearing in the Probate and Family Court, the judge issued special findings and the necessary predicate order.  The clients have now filed for immigrant juvenile visas and permanent resident status (green cards) based upon the abandonment and violence that they endured in their country of origin.
