Our client, a native and citizen of Colombia was placed in removal proceedings and detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for convictions including three burglaries and two cases of interfering with the custody of a child. These convictions occurred in both Miami-Dade and Broward County Florida. We applied for adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident for our client through his marriage to a United States citizen spouse. Because of his convictions, he was required to file for a waiver of inadmissibility under Section 212(h) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act. After a lengthy removal hearing before an Immigration Judge, our client was granted relief in the form of adjustment of status in conjunction with the 212(h) waiver. He is now free from ICE custody and home with his family.
Adjustment of Status with Waiver.
