Dear Editor:
My ex-husband is from South Africa. His conditional green card was based on our marriage. We were divorced and he petitioned, on his own, to have the conditions removed. He had to go to the INS in Memphis, Tennessee (he resides in Arkansas). After this interview he was sent a letter stating that his petition was "denied". He went to see an attorney in Arkansas, paid him $200 to write a letter to INS and lo and behold approximately one month later he received a letter stating that he now had permanent residency. One week later he received his perm. residency card. It was our understanding that the decision of the INS courts (Memphis) could not be appealed or changed. If this is true, how did one small letter that took approximately 5 minutes to write, get his "denial" changed? What would an attorney write, especially having not ever known my ex-husband or myself, to have received such an turnabout decision?

Gail
