Ana S. Mendieta graduated with a Degree in Law from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras. Soon after graduation she worked for the Department of Justice in Honduras, serving as a Special Agent under the supervision of the Attorney General. There, she led investigations, which resulted in the prosecution of a number of individuals involved in various types of criminal activity, ranging from violent crimes to white-collar crime. After a successful tenure with the Office of the Attorney General, Ms. Mendieta moved on to the Supreme Court of Justice of Honduras where she served as a clerk to the Chief Justice and as the Executive Director of the Judicial Gazette of the Supreme Court. Through these positions, Ms. Mendieta compiled, edited, and published the first yearly judicial and administrative report of the Supreme Court to be published during Congressional meeting. Ms. Mendieta also edited and published the Judicial Gazette, which comprised briefs and decisions dealing with new Rules of Law as well as other topics of national interest, from those relating to judicial reforms taking place in Honduras to those dealing with women's and children's rights and the newly established Code of criminal procedures.
In the United States, Ms. Mendieta served as a volunteer for the Florida Guardian Ad Litem Program for the 20th Judicial Circuit in Collier County, Florida. As an officer of the court, she was appointed to represent the best interest of the child in dependency hearings. Being a multilingual advocate, many of the children represented were the progeny of immigration center detainees. Realizing that the amount of aid she was able to provide to the children and their families was limited – due to her status as a volunteer – Ms. Mendieta decided to pursue a law degree in the United States, which she obtained from the Ave Maria School of Law, in Naples, Florida and her License as an Attorney and Counselor at Law from the Florida Supreme Court of Justice.

Q. Hola Buenos dias me gustaria hacer una consulta el dia dia agosto 16 2022 mi esposo y yo ganamos la cancelacion
A: First and foremost, Congratulations to you and your spouse on winning a EOIR-42B, Cancellation of Removal and Adjustment of Status for Certain nonpermanent residents.

You have not received any documents as yet, because the Judge has not issued a decision in your case. Your case is pending in a queue based on the chronological order of their Cap Dates. When numbers become available, the Court will determine which reserved decisions may be issued based on their place in the queue.

So you can still file for Employment Authorization document as your case is "technically" still pending.

Again, Congratulations!


En primer lugar, felicitaciones a usted y a su cónyuge por ganar un EOIR-42B, Cancelación de deportación y ajuste de estatus para ciertos residentes no permanentes.

Todavía no ha recibido ningún documento, porque el juez no ha emitido una decisión en su caso. Su caso está pendiente en una cola según el orden cronológico de sus fechas límite. Cuando los números estén disponibles, el Tribunal determinará qué decisiones reservadas se pueden emitir en función de su lugar en la cola.

Por lo tanto, aún puede solicitar el documento de Autorización de Empleo ya que su caso está "técnicamente" aún pendiente.

De nuevo, ¡Felicidades!
