In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) upheld the termination of proceedings upon finding the Department of Homeland Security did not meet its burden of showing the respondent obtained adjustment of status by willful misrepresentation. The Board noted that although his U.S. citizen wife had finalized their divorce a month before their joint interview, the respondent believed the marriage was still valid at the time of the interview. The decision was written by Vice Chairman Charles Adkins-Blanch.
