Petition to Support Family Unity
Jacqueline and Rosen are a happily married couple living in the United States. Jacqueline, a native of Bolivia, is a United States citizen and serves her faith community tirelessly as a counselor and lay pastor. Rosen, her husband is from Bulgaria and fled a difficult life in his home country. The couple is in the middle of an immigration process where Jacqueline is petitioning for Rosen to get his green card but the couple must prove that it would be an extreme hardship to Jacqueline if her husband is not present for her (because he is deported). The couple's petition has already been once denied and is soon to be reconsidered by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. If the petition is denied again, Rosen will be placed in removal proceedings and could very likely be deported and the couple separated or forced to choose to live in either Bolivia or Bulgaria where, in either country, life would be difficult.
