BIA precedent in the Matter of Abdoulin, 17 I&N Dec. 458 (BIA 1980) allows immigration adjudicators to consider evidence that an LPR who is petitioning for a relative had abandoned his or her LPR status. A petition can be denied on this basis even if there is no formal finding of abandonment against the LPR petitioner.
