INMIGRACIÓN: No todos los funcionarios de USCIS tienen credibilidad

(January 30, 2018)

 

P:  Me casé con una ciudadana y mis 2 hijas y yo somos residentes desde el 2014. En el 2016 solicité remover las condiciones de la residencia. El año pasado me divorcié. Mi abogado me informó que presentaría mi divorcio al oficial de inmigración. Como el caso lleva pendiente un año y medio, la semana pasada fui inmigración para hablar con un oficial. Me dijeron que mi abogado no había presentado el divorcio y que mis hijas no están incluidas en la petición y que estaba botando mi dinero con el abogado. Hablé con él y me aseguró que sí están incluidas y que puede probar que envió el divorcio.

 

¿A quién debo creerle?

R: Deberías creer al abogado que te representó para remover las condiciones de residencia (forma I-751). Asumiendo que ambos tú y tu ex esposa presentaron la petición juntos, un abogado con experiencia va a saber que después del divorcio tienes que convertir el caso a divorciado.

 

Además, cuando los hijos obtienen la residencia dentro de 90 días que el padre o madre la obtenga, los hijos están incluidos y él tuvo que haber indicado esto en la petición.

 

Cuando una persona asiste a la cita en la Oficina de Ciudadanía y Servicios de Inmigración (USCIS) a través del sistema “InfoPass”, el funcionario normalmente está mirando el archivo electrónico y no el expediente físico del solicitante. Puede ser que el agente no haya preparado el archivo correctamente y no haya incluido a tus hijas en el sistema electrónico.

 

Además, si tu abogado tiene prueba de que envió el divorcio, debe estar en tu expediente. Los funcionarios del sistema InfoPass tienen información limitada y a veces dicen cosas que no deben, especialmente cuando el cliente va sin su abogado. Muchos piensan que son infalibles, pero las leyes, regulaciones y política de inmigración son muy complicadas y a veces se necesita un abogado presente para hacer ver a los funcionarios que no tienen el conocimiento especializado que se requiere.

 

Por ende, deberías confiar en tu abogado a menos que sospeches que no está haciendo un buen trabajo representándote.

IMMIGRATION: Not all USCIS officials have credibility

Exclusive to The Sentinel.

Q: I married a citizen and my 2 daughters and I are residents since 2014. In 2016 I requested to remove the conditions of the residence. Last year I got divorced. My lawyer informed me that I would file my divorce with the immigration officer. As the case is pending a year and a half, last week I went immigration to speak with an officer. I was told that my lawyer had not filed the divorce and that my daughters are not included in the petition and that I was throwing my money with the lawyer. I spoke with him and he assured me that they are included and that he can prove that he sent the divorce.

 

Who should I believe?

A: You should believe the attorney who represented you to remove the residency conditions (form I-751). Assuming that both you and your ex-wife filed the petition together, an experienced lawyer will know that after the divorce you have to make the case divorced.

 

In addition, when the children obtain residence within 90 days that the father or mother obtains it, the children are included and he must have indicated this in the petition.

 

When a person attends the appointment at the Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) through the “InfoPass” system, the official is usually looking at the electronic file and not the physical file of the applicant. It may be that the agent has not prepared the file correctly and has not included your daughters in the electronic system.

 

Also, if your lawyer has proof that he sent the divorce, it must be in your file. InfoPass system officials have limited information and sometimes say things they should not, especially when the client goes without their lawyer. Many think they are infallible, but the laws, regulations and immigration policy are very complicated and sometimes a lawyer is needed to show officials who do not have the specialized knowledge that is required.

 

Therefore, you should trust your lawyer unless you suspect that he is not doing a good job representing you.

Mr. Becker helped my husband with a difficult immigration matter. The fee charged was extremely reasonable and the services provided were excellent.

Sue

The Best Choice! I had a very challenging immigration situation and was referred to Mr. Becker by another very satisfied client. I went to our first meeting with very little hope, as other attorneys advised me that there was nothing that could be done. Mr. Becker was very professional, treated me with respect and dignity, but more importantly, he showed empathy. Mr Becker successfully resolved my situation and I highly recommend him and his very capable staff. I commend him also for his excellent work ethics and putting his clients first.
