Thread: Under removal, what to do now?

  1. #1
    My sister filed for asylum and was denied back in 2006. The judge allowed her to appeal and since then we haven't heard anything from the lawyer. In 2008, she got married and her husband filed for her, the I-130 was approved and after she had her biometrics taken last year, we found out that she was under removal and that she couldn't get her green card.
    Only last week we learned that her appeal got dismissed, the lawyer that she had disbared and that she had to ask the immigration judge who denied her to reopen her case cause only him can adjust her status. The only issue is that she might get picked up and deported at anytime and especially if she goes back to court, what can i do to help her?

    You can pay for her attorney or hide her from ICE.

    or maybe she belong across the border, in which case a burro will suffice.

    Here's the problem with that case. With an asylum you can't adjust status during the proceedings based on immediate family and if the BIA concurred and denied the appeal your next step is the circuit courts. However, the fact the attorney was disbarred may give you an opportunity to re-open based on ineffective counsel. But, and I might be wrong, regardless the outcome you may not be able to do a family based adjustment either way. It may come down to winning the asylum case or going home. It has to do with the timing of the marriage as it relates to the IJ's initial ruling.
    This message brought to you by the vast right wing conspiracy.

    @ davdah, thank u very much, i appreciate it. That's what one of the lawyer we talked 2 said he could do,ask the judge to reopen the case n terminate it so her husband can go n refile for her or the judge can allow her to adjust her status in court. I guess that's the risk we gonna take.
    @ federale86, lol,lol, that's also an option but she can't hide forever, she has a 9 months old son w her hubby, she needs to get her status fixed so she can finish school n take care of herself and her family.
