WHY I WARN CLIENTS NOT TO LISTEN TO USCIS HELP LINE

Rate this Entry

Here's a typical example of what happens when you rely on USCIS. The folks there are often poorly trained and don't have a complete handle on the facts. Yet they offer legal advice nonetheless and often with terrible consequences.



In this case, Brian Whittaker followed the advice of a USCIS officer who told him that because he was out of status, he needed to leave the US and apply for his green card to be with his US citizen wife from outside the country. He followed the advice and then triggered a ten year reentry bar, something that was not necessary since he was eligible to adjust status in the US. My friend Chris Nugent, an excellent DC-based lawyer, took the case on for free and saved the day. Well done Chris!
