FAQ; how long can it take to gain legal status?

Answer; when I first passed the bar exam 23 years ago in Tennessee prior to becoming a licensed attorney I helped an immigrant avoid deportation in immigration court. I advised the attorney who handled who did not have immigration experience on how to deal with the case. I had just graduated law school where I has studied immigration law. Over the years I assisted the client as he attempted to gain lawful status. Unfortunately my client was unsuccessful on his marriage case because of divorce. Likewise his employment case failed because his employer went out of business.

The way that he adjusted status to Permanent Residency was by an application by his US citizen daughter when she turned 21 years of age. So last week I called to tell him that his case has been approved after all of these years.

This is the nature of immigration law; the cases take years to develop. This makes the practice one of strategy and patience.
