Three Types of Immigration Waivers

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) allows the issuance of several types of waivers, each one used for a specific situation. To save you time and energy, allow our immigration waiver lawyers in Houston to hear your case during an initial evaluation so that we can determine what waiver is right for you. Our goal from the start is to help you legally enter the United States and remain for as long as need be. Below you will find general information about the three main types of waivers that are available under U.S. immigration law.

I-6-1 Waiver of Inadmissibility

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) offers several opportunities to obtain a waiver of inadmissibility for those deemed ineligible to seek entry using an immigrant visa or adjustment of status. If you are eligible, this waiver can allow you to remain or return to the United States after being declared inadmissible. The waiver is for those individuals who can prove that their qualifying relative would suffer extreme hardship if forced to live without them in the U.S. or forced to move to the applicant’s home country.

A long list of requirements and qualifications exist in order to be eligible for a waiver of inadmissibility. These include:

  • Your criminal record if any
  • Your record of criminal activity outside the U.S.
  • Your history with the DHS and ICE
  • Other aspects of your background and various factors relevant to your case

The importance of discussing your case with a competent immigration attorney who is experienced in handling waivers cannot be overstated. In fact, assessing whether or not you should even attempt filing for this waiver is the most important step in the process.

I-601A Provisional Waiver to Remain

On March 4, 2013, the United States began to allow persons who entered the United States without inspection to apply for a provisional waiver to excuse the unlawful presence. The reason for this is so that immediate relatives would not be separated from their families for months or even years while they wait for their waiver to be granted.

Once you submit an application for a provisional waiver, you will be allowed to wait in the United States until approval. Once approved, you will then be required to travel back to your country of origin to pass an immigration interview after which you can return back to the U.S. within days. This type of provisional waiver is a great vehicle to help your family stay together and to avoid the experience of long, uncertain waiting times while apart.

I-212 Waiver of Inadmissibility

An immigrant who has been deported due to criminal offense convictions or for illegally entering the country faces a difficult task when attempting to reenter. An I-212 Waiver may be the only means of gaining permission to reenter the country. The complexities and requirements for filing an I-212 waiver application require the knowledge and experience of our skilled immigration lawyers. Preparation of the package for filing must be done in a persuasive fashion, with all forms and attachments leaving immigration officials with little doubt that the application should be granted. The preparation of these filings is a crucial and essential basis for the process when dealing with this or any immigration benefit.
