AAO Extreme Hardship Victory
"When considering the applicant's spouse's extensive family ties to the United States, the abandonment of her permanent resident status, her son's disability, and the common hardships associated with relocation, the AAO finds that she would experience extreme hardship upon relocation to Mexico. ... Considering the totality of the hardship factors presented, the AAO finds that the applicant's spouse would suffer extreme hardship if she remained in the United States. ... The appeal is sustained."
