Our client, a native and citizen of Israel, was previously deported from the United States. His United States citizen wife petitioned for him to obtain an immigrant visa (green card). Because of his previous unlawful presence and deportation, he needed a waiver and a showing of extreme hardship to a qualifying relative. We were able to convince the consular officer in Israel that extreme hardship was present in this case and all applications for benefits were approved. Our client successfully consular processed with the waiver and is now present in the United States as a green card holder.
