23 Dec 2016 CSPA Age-Out Victory!
A MOTHER’S (AND HER ATTORNEY’S) PERSISTENCE RESULTS IN HER DAUGHTERS FINALLY BEING ISSUED CSPA VISAS BASED ON “EXTRAORDINARY CIRCUMSTANCES”
Lolita left her two daughters in the Philippines to seek a better life in the US; her dream was that they would eventually join her. However, her previous attorney missed the one year “sought to acquire” filing deadline for CSPA eligibility, resulting in the Embassy refusing to issue their immigrant visas.
Leading US immigration attorney MICHAEL J. GURFINKEL was her beacon of hope, as he did not give up, and finally convinced the Embassy that the daughters should be entitled to visas, despite missing the one-year deadline, based on “extraordinary circumstances.”
