Husband and Wife Reunited

Last month CWS celebrated the conclusion of its first completed refugee family reunification case, welcoming the arrival of an Eritrean woman successfully reunited with her husband here in the United States!  The husband sought assistance from the CWS immigration program, which began offering immigration legal services for refugees and asylees in March 2011.   At roughly 8 1/2 months from the husband’s initial application to the wife’s arrival, the case was processed in an unusually fast amount of time.  Since its inception just over 1 year ago, the CWS Immigration Legal Services program has assisted refugees in applying for over two dozen eligible family members to join them in the U.S.  Click here for more information about our Immigration Legal Services program.
