Citizenship Approval for Albanian with Weapons Possession Offense


Our client, an Albanian national, had entered the U.S. in 2001 as a refugee. Shortly after his arrival in the U.S., he was convicted for the Unlawful Possession of a Weapon. He applied for U.S. citizenship when he was eligible, and was denied U.S. citizenship because he was removable from the U.S. He was then placed in removal proceedings. Client came to Azhar & Azhar Law Firm, and Attorney Furqan filed an I-130 through his U.S. citizen wife, and a 42-A application for Cancellation of Removal. Attorney Furqan then approached the Chief Counsel’s office to consider terminating the case, in light of the several positive equities present, and they agreed to terminate his removal case so that our client could re-apply for U.S. citizenship. Attorney Furqan then re-filed the client’s citizenship application, and USCIS approved it.
