An immigration waiver application is a formal request to the U.S. government to forgive whatever grounds of inadmissibility you have that makes you ineligible for a green card or other immigration benefit. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) offers various types of waivers that can be used for both legal immigrants and non-immigrants who are here unlawfully.
If you have been found to be inadmissible to the U.S., FuerzaLaw can help you apply for the proper waiver that can help you achieve your goal to enter or remain in the U.S. Our immigration team is extremely knowledgeable in the various types of waivers that can be used on behalf of clients. We can assist you in filing the right waiver as well as the many documents needed to substantiate your request in proving that the waiver is deserved. Our Las Vegas waiver attorneys have guided many clients through the necessary processes and can help you increase your chances for a waiver approval.
Immigration waivers offered by the USCIS include but are not limited to:
- Waiver of Inadmissibility for Non-Immigrants. This waiver is for non-immigrants who seek to enter the U.S. for a temporary stay, such as for a visitor, student, or worker. It is not available for those seeking to obtain a green card. It is used to waive most inadmissibility grounds, such as for criminal convictions, fraud, or health grounds. Certain grounds cannot be waived under this waiver, such as for espionage, genocide, and others.
- Waiver of Unlawful Presence. This applies to individuals who remained in the U.S. unlawfully for certain periods of time and are declared inadmissible for either a three-year or 10-year span, depending on the circumstances. This waiver waives their inadmissibility if they meet proper eligibility requirements. They must be the spouse or child of a U.S. citizen or green card holder and must show extreme hardship on their qualifying family member if they are not allowed to return to the U.S.
- Provisional waiver. This is for applicants who are relatives of U.S. citizens or green card holders applying for immigration visas. This waiver allows you to submit your application from within the U.S. before returning to your home country for consular processing. The waiver waives the three or 10-year ban of re-entering the U.S. after having been here unlawfully. This waiver provides no other benefits nor official green card status other than allowing you to return to the U.S. after leaving this country to complete consular processing.
Other specific waivers are available for inadmissibility on health-related grounds, fraud and misrepresentation, as well as humanitarian waivers, waivers to prevent removal for criminal convictions or criminal acts, and more.
