San Diego Immigration Waivers Lawyer
Is Your Immigration Status in Jeopardy?
A non-citizen seeking lawful admission into the United States must go through inspection. This person must then be admitted or paroled by Customs and Border Protection. Persons that entered unlawfully or without inspection are deemed to be inadmissible and subject to removal.
Non-citizens are also considered inadmissible if they have:
- Certain health issues
- Criminal convictions
- Committed a misrepresentation,
- Acquired unlawful presence
- A prior removal order.
Fortunately, there are waivers that remove some of the grounds for inadmissibility. The attorneys at Rodriguez Law Firm have years of experience in immigration law. We have a thorough understand of how waivers are applicable to unique situations. We have successfully helped many clients file and receive the waiver they need to enter or remain in the United States.
We will review the issues of inadmissibility and identify which type of waiver is available to you. The good news is, if you are eligible for a waiver it will remove the violation(s). You can then file the appropriate non-immigrant or immigrant visa.
Types of Immigration Waivers
Knowing which waiver to apply for is important. Each waiver can remove specific violation(s) that made the non-citizen inadmissible.
The two most common types of waivers are:
- I-601A Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver
- I-601 Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility.
What is the Difference Between the I-601 and I-601A?
The I-601 waiver has a broad scope compared to the I-601A waiver. This waiver can be used to waive other grounds of inadmissibility, while the I-601A only waives unlawful presence.
The I-601 waiver requires that the applicant have a qualifying relative that will experience extreme hardship if the application is denied. If the applicant does not have qualifying relative or cannot prove extreme hardship for I-601, the waiver will be denied.
Denied I-601 Waivers
If your application for I-601 waivers is denied you will receive a denial notice to the address you provided. If you wish to appeal, you will have 30 days to file Form I-290B, Notice of Appeal or Motion.
I was really confident in sending out my GC application after working with them.
He was extremely patient and professional.
Thank god we found Mr. Rodriguez's law firm.
I had researched at least 30 lawyers before I chose John. All the other lawyers I spoke to seemed focused on their fees rather than my case.
This was all a super stressful situation, but after hiring John, I finally felt like the weight was lifted.
