When it rains, it pours ('as the saying goes'). This is life unfortunately. If you or someone you know is in U.S. Immigration removal/deportation proceedings and the legal relief is based on a U.S. Citizen Spouse ("USC"), it is vital to keep the relationship with your USC spouse healthy. However, if the relationship becomes unbearable and separation and divorce becomes inevitable, it is important to take steps to guard against immediate removal and deportation from the United States. An I-130/I-485 Adjustment of Status based on USC spouse is based on a bona fide marriage, not whether the couple has marital problems. It is important to understand the difference when sitting down with legal counsel.
Unaccompanied children are very special cases in our office. With the recent arrival of unaccompanied minors at the border, we have been able to help dozens of children in applying for relief and prevention of their immediate removal from the United States.
