Padilla Law, P.C. successfully represented an 82 year old Mexican national in his immigration case to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States. The client has been in the United States since 1960 and was eligible for registry.
An individual may apply for and be granted lawful permanent resident status pursuant to registry if he:
- Entered the United States prior to January 1, 1972;
- Resided in the United States continuously since January 1, 1972;
- Is a person of good moral character; and
- Is not removable/deportable under certain sections of the INA (for crimes, immoral conduct, etc.)
Padilla Law, P.C. traveled to Grand Junction, Colorado with the client for his interview with USCIS in November and he was granted lawful permanent resident status last week. His green card should arrive within three weeks.
