Approval of  U.S. Waiver application

I am a Bangladeshi native born in Chittagong, Bangladesh. I was entered into USA under B1/B2 (Visit) Visa. I then overstayed in U.S. Later, the DMB Authority of U.S. filed a criminal case against me known as Felony. Later, I got married to U.S. Citizen. I then voluntary departed from the U.S. My U.S. Citizen wife applied Immigrant Visa for me. I appeared for IR-1 Immigrant Visa Interview at the U.S. Embassy in Dhaka, Bangladesh. After interview the visa officer had given me a blue sheet form (OF-194). In this sheet it is stated that “Arrest Record”. The officer refused my immigrant visa and instructed me to submit Discharge Order from the relevant Court of U.S. that I am not guilty. I then retained Law Firm of Barrister M. R. I. Chowdhury. Later, I was discharged from charges in U.S. Court. But the Consular Officer of U.S. Embassy in Dhaka arbitrarily barred me to enter into United States under section 212(a)(6)(c)(i) without any justified reason. The Consular Officer advised me to apply for a waiver. My Immigration Attorney M. R. I. Chowdhury filed waiver petition with grounds of extreme hardship and strongly challenged the unfounded finding of the visa officer and prepared a memorandum of law submitting credible evidences and finally my waiver petition was approved, the finding of visa officer was overturned. I was issued IR-1 Immigrant Visa by U.S. Embassy, Dhaka and able to join with my wife in USA permanently. Barrister Chowdhury is an excellent lawyer: competent, committed and very innovative. He will represent you diligently and look for the best sometimes almost impossible solution. My case is one of the precedents.
