This month a client who had entered the US with a fraudulent passport was granted residency by an Immigration Judge. This client had filed three previously applications with USCIS and all were denied. He arrived in the US 15 years ago and had traveled from his native country to reunite with the woman he loved.

This new policy guidance provides a mechanism by which foreign nationals who are otherwise ineligible to apply for “adjustment of status” in the US may now be considered eligible. Let’s explain the process and define the terms.
