BREAKING NEWS:

THERE ARE TWO VERY IMPORTANT COURT DECISIONS/NEWS ITEMS THAT POTENTIALLY AFFECT MILLIONS OF APPLICANTS EITHER APPLYING FOR RELIEF OR WHO ARE IN REMOVAL PROCEEDINGS AND SEEKING TO REOPEN THEIR CASES:

(1) COURT ORDER: I-944 FORM/RULE CHANGES NO LONGER IN EFFECT: First, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to grant certiorari, and DHS consequently dismissed any challenges to a court order enjoining the Public Charge Rule Changes enacted last year. Therefore, anyone filing for adjustment of status on or after March 9, 2021, should NOT provide Form I-944 or any other documents required therein, nor any information regarding receipt of public charge benefits on any nonimmigrant change of status or extension of status forms.

(2) COURT ORDER: MOTION TO REOPEN RULE CHANGES STOPPED/ENJOINED PENDING RESOLUTION OF LITIGATION: Second, a U.S. District Court in Northern California has issued a nationwide injunction enjoining a final rule that was enacted late last year prohibiting certain types of motions, including sua sponte motions to reopen and motions to remand, prohibiting administrative closure, as well as, implementing many other restrictions and stricter timelines for appeals. Under this order, this rule change cannot be implemented, pending outcome of the underlying lawsuit. Therefore, make sure to file sua sponte motions to reopen and any motions to remand or reopen that you may be considering filing ASAP now that this rule is no longer in effect at the present time.

BREAKING NEWS:

The Presidential proclamations from last year that had suspended immigrant and non-immigrant visa processing/issuance at U.S. consulates/embassies worldwide, as well as Diversity Visas (DV) have been revoked as of today by President Biden. Therefore, Immigrant and Non-Immigrant Visa Processing, as well as, DV Lottery Case Processing can all resume effective immediately.

IMPORTANT NOTES REGARDING PROPOSED IMMIGRATION LAWS/POLICY CHANGES BY PRESIDENT BIDEN AND HIS ADMINISTRATION:

As many of you may have heard and we are getting many calls on this issue lately, President Biden is proposing many dramatic changes to the U.S. immigration laws. However, nothing has yet been enacted by Congress, and aside from a few limited executive orders, there are no new laws yet enacted under the new administration. If anything changes or there is concrete information that is relevant, we will always post on it here ASAP.

Be careful to double check your information if anyone mentions new laws and tries to charge money for such "new laws" being enacted as there are many such scams already starting following the President's outline of his policy goals on immigration. To actually get a law enacted is a process that may take weeks or months or even longer.

Let your friends and loved ones know to follow us here at Nalbandian Law in case there are changes in the immigration laws enacted by Congress within the next few months or throughout the year as proposed by President Biden.

01/04/2021

BREAKING NEWS:

Due to the continuing Covid-19 Pandemic, the Presidential Proclamations prohibiting issuance of Immigrant Visas (permanent residence), as well as, many forms of Non-Immigrant (temporary) Visas, were extended by President Trump through March 31, 2021. This means that immigrant and non-immigrant visas for many family and employment categories, including for anyone who is not an immediate relative (spouse or child under 21 years of age of a U.S. citizen). If anything changes between now and March 31st under the new Biden Presidency, we will keep you informed immediately. Otherwise, embassies will resume processing of such visas after March 31, 2021.

Nalbandian Law wishes all of our clients and followers and their families a Happy New Year! We pray that 2021 will be a year full of health, happiness, and all of God's blessings in your lives!

However, in the upcoming days and weeks, the courts will announce what new safety procedures will be implemented and which hearings will be televideo, telephonic, or in-person. We will keep you updated of any changes in the upcoming days/weeks as we receive them from the courts.

***URGENT BREAKING NEWS: I-765 WORK PERMIT CHANGES, EFFECTIVE AS OF TOMORROW, AUGUST 25, 2020, MAKING IT CONSIDERABLY HARDER TO OBTAIN WORK AUTHORIZATION FOR ASYLUM APPLICANTS:

Recent rule changes will make it much harder for asylum seekers to work in the United States . We are summarizing some of the key changes in this post.

Changes to who can get a work permit if you have applied for or are considering applying for asylum (please read ALL OF THE CHANGES below carefully):

• Asylum seekers who cross the border on or after August 25, 2020 and do not present at a port of entry will NOT be eligible for a work permit, unless they meet certain exceptions.

• Asylum seekers who have been in the United States for more than a year and file their asylum application on or after August 25, 2020 (missed the one-year asylum filing deadline) will not be eligible for a work permit, unless and until an immigration judge or USCIS officer finds that they qualify for an exception, or unless they are a child who is designated an “unaccompanied minor.”

• Asylum seekers will have to wait 365 days (one year) after submitting their asylum application to be eligible for a work permit, instead of 180 days (about 6 months), starting on August 25, 2020. So make sure you postmark your applications today if you can, before the changes kick in tomorrow.

• Asylum seekers who have committed or been convicted of certain crimes (DUI, etc.) may not be eligible for work permits.

• Starting on August 25, 2020, the government will no longer stop the asylum clock for specific reasons. Instead, the government will deny applications for work permits if they decide that there are “unresolved applicant-caused delays,” for example if the asylum seeker missed a biometrics appointment.

• Starting on August 25, 2020, the government will charge an $85 fee for biometrics for asylum seekers applying for a work permit.

These are critical and radical changes to EAD (work permit) laws. You may email us at [email protected] if you have any questions related to these rule changes or call us at (818) 244-0310 to leave a message regarding your questions. Email is the preferred method of communication and leads to faster response times.)

BREAKING NEWS: INJUNCTION ISSUED BY NEW YORK FEDERAL JUDGE AGAINST THE NEW PUBLIC CHARGE RULES/FORM I-944 - NO NEED TO INCLUDE FORM I-944 AND THE DOCUMENTS REQUIRED WITH FORM I-944 FOR APPLICATIONS FILED ON OR AFTER JULY 29, 2020 AS LONG AS THIS FEDERAL INJUNCTION IS IN EFFECT THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES:

USCIS states, as follows, on their website:

As long as the July 29, 2020, SDNY decision is in effect, USCIS will apply the 1999 public charge guidance that was in place before the Public Charge Rule was implemented on Feb. 24, 2020 to the adjudication of any application for adjustment of status on or after July 29, 2020. In addition, USCIS will adjudicate any application or petition for extension of nonimmigrant stay or change of nonimmigrant status on or after July 29, 2020, consistent with regulations in place before the Public Charge Rule was implemented; in other words, we will not apply the public benefit condition.

For applications and petitions that USCIS adjudicates on or after July 29, 2020, pursuant to the SDNY injunction, USCIS will not consider any information provided by an applicant or petitioner that relates to the Public Charge Rule, including information provided on the Form I-944, or information on the receipt of public benefits in Part 5 on Form I-539, Part 3 on Form I-539A or Part 6 on Form I-129.

Applicants and petitioners whose applications or petitions are POSTMARKED on or after July 29, 2020, should NOT include the Form I-944 or provide information about the receipt of public benefits on Form I-485, Form I-129, or Form I-539/I-539A. USCIS will issue guidance regarding the use of affected forms. In the interim, USCIS will not reject any Form I-485 on the basis of the inclusion or exclusion of Form I-944, nor Forms I-129 and I-539 based on whether Part 6, or Part 5, respectively, has been completed or left blank.
In any public charge inadmissibility determination, USCIS will consider the receipt of public benefits consistently with prior public charge guidance – the 1999 Interim Field Guidance (PDF) and AFM Ch. 61.1. (PDF, 77.92 KB)

Supreme Court blocks Trump from ending DACA

BREAKING NEWS: The DACA decision by the U.S. Supreme Court today remands the case and keeps DACA in place, for now, though it’s a narrow decision and the litigation on the issue will likely continue. We will update you shortly as to what this means to new applicants and whether they can now apply for DACA once we analyze the decision and also get more guidance from USCIS as to whether and when they will accept new DACA applicants.
