In 2018, we traveled to Port Isabel Detention Center to defend an individual from Africa who was seeking asylum in the United States. He was separated from his wife and children, so the family had to fight their cases separately in a non-detained court. We successfully defended our client in Port Isabel and then filed I-730’s, refugee/asylee relative petition, for the wife and children.
After the I-730 interviews for the wife and children, we received approvals for the children but a Notice of Intent to Deny (NOID) the wife’s I-730, because she did not valid document that memorialized her marriage to her husband. We got creative in our response to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), combining both local, state, and constitutional law from the clients’ state of origin, and we were able to overcome the NOID and received an approval for the wife.
At the Powers Law Group, one of the many traits that characterizes us is how we go above and beyond to find a way to bring a solution to a complicated matter.
If you have recently received a NOID or a Request for Evidence (RFE), or have a question regarding your immigration case, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys at (713) 589-2085.
