Our client, a citizen and native of Canada, was convicted of Theft of Government funds in the amount of over $400,000.00. Our client is a gambling addict who committed the acts of theft to support his habit. After serving an 18 month sentence in Federal Prison, he was transferred to an immigration detention facility and placed in removal proceedings. We submitted an I-130 petition by his U.S. citizen wife and an adjustment of status application with a waiver for the ground of removal which was an aggravated felony.
Adjustment of Status with Waiver granted.
