Singh v. Holder, No. 07-73792

Article Placeholder Image
By FindLaw Staff on January 10, 2010 2:38 PM

In a petition for review of the BIA's denial of petitioner's application for a hardship waiver of the joint petition requirement for permanent residence, the petition is denied where: 1) the BIA considered hardship to all the family members discussed in petitioner's testimony; 2) because petitioner was a former permanent resident who lacked conditional status when he filed his second and third petitions requesting hardship waivers, he had no status to extend; and 3) even if the immigration judge erred in evaluating the evidence concerning hardship, his errors were rendered harmless by the BIA's de novo review.
