In this unpublished decision, the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) held that the respondent was eligible to adjust status because she did not "voluntarily" overstay period of voluntary departure. The Board noted the respondent remained in the country after her period of voluntary departure expired because USCIS had recently granted an I-130 visa petition filed on her behalf, and the immigration judge and Department of Homeland Security had previously agreed that proceedings would be reopened if visa petition was granted within the voluntary departure period. The decision was written by Member Roger Pauley and joined by Member Linda Wendtland and Member Anne Greer.
