Earlier this year, we witnessed a miracle. One of our clients had entered the United States as an unaccompanied minor. Having entered without proper documents, the child was placed in accelerated deportation proceedings. However, his mother was able to locate his estranged father, who was a lawful permanent resident living in Virginia. The father had not seen his son since 3 months of age. When he learned of his son's presence in the United States, he agreed to do anything to help him. The father underwent a DNA test and filed a petition for his son. Based on this evidence and a successful legal petition, the son recently received lawful immigration status.
