Immigration Waiver Lawyer
Individuals who are considered inadmissible in accordance to the criteria as stated in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) are not permitted by law to enter or remain in the United States.

Categories of inadvisability include the following:

For certain grounds of unacceptability, it may be possible for a person to obtain a confirmation of that. In some cases, exceptions are applicable and no disclaimer is required to overcome the inadmissibles.
Examples include exceptions for aliens who have been battered, abused, or subjected to extreme cruelty, who are victims of severe forms of trafficking, and who are minors.

 

I-601A Provisional Waiver Lawyer

Persons who are located in the USA and believe they are or will be inadmissible for three or ten years upon their departure because they accrued more than 180 days of unlawful presence, may be eligible for a waiver. It only applies to those who are in the country but are seeking a visa through the consular process at a U.S. Embassy or consulate abroad and are relatives of (a) U.S. citizens or resident spouses or (b) U.S. citizens or resident parents and can demonstrate extreme hardship to the qualifying relative. The individual applicant must request a provisional waiver before they depart the U.S. by submitting Form I-601A with USCIS and obtain the approval prior to departure.

provisional Unlawful Presence waiver

If granted, the waiver is provisional and does not take effect until the person leaves the country, appears for his or her immigrant visa interview, and the Department of State consular officer determines that they are otherwise admissible to the US. The waiver only covers one ground of inadmissibility. A person who may be subject to multiple grounds of inadvisability will not be eligible but may still seek a waiver through the Form I-601.

If you are seeking adjustment of status, TPS, or a K visa, you can file the Form I-601 with your request for an immigration benefit or after you have filed your request.

If you are seeking an immigrant visa at the U.S. consulate, you can only file the Form I-601 after you are interviewed by a Department of State consular officer who found you to be inadmissible to the land. Get in touch with our immigration attorney Houston, TX for additional information.
