Ten Year Permanent Resident Despite Late Filing

Attorney Mooradian's client, a young woman from Central America, recently received her ten year permanent resident card after late-filing form I-751. The client came to Attorney Mooradian after already having been placed in removal proceedings.  Those proceedings were initiated because, due to medical and mental health concerns, she had missed her interview to remove the conditions of her permanent resident status.

Mooradian was able to combine mental health records, records relating to the applicant's young child, and several affidavits in support to present a logical explanation to the USCIS Field Office regarding why a new I-751 had been filed.  In fact, Mooradian had to convince the local office that it did indeed have jurisdiction over the I-751 given that the Applicant had already been referred to the Boston Immigration Court.

Following a brief interview at the Lawrence Field Office, the officer approved the Petition.  Now, the Applicant is a ten-year lawful permanent resident of the United States. She is now able to terminate removal proceedings against her at the Boston Immigration Court as she is no longer removable from the United States.
