Kulas v. Jaddou: Challenging the delays in adjudicating I-730/follow-to-join petitions of Sri Lankan family

This is one in a series of cases in which IRAP is representing refugee families who are seeking to reunite in the United States. 

Our client

Our client, Jayarajah Kulas, is a Tamil refugee who fled Sri Lanka nearly a decade ago to escape kidnapping, torture, and death at the hands of the Sri Lankan army. He was unable to bring his family with him on his difficult journey to safety. He has been separated from his family for over eight years.


Mr. Kulas is hoping to reunite with his wife and two young sons who are stuck in Sri Lanka, enduring harassment as the country spirals into a humanitarian crisis.

Case status

We are in discussions with the government about progress on Mr. Kulas’s family reunification petitions.
