Are You Eligible For An Immigration Waiver?
If you are seeking an immigration waiver, our attorneys can review your situation to help you determine if you are eligible and, if so, what type of waiver best suits your circumstances.
When Immigration Waivers Are Necessary
An individual may have committed an act for which a “waiver” is required to obtain non-immigrant or immigrant status in the U.S. The act does not need to be criminal (although some criminal acts do require waivers). Acts that may necessitate a waiver include:
- Misrepresenting yourself to a U.S. official in the past
- Overstaying your legal status in the U.S.
- Entering the U.S. without permission
- Having been previously deported from the U.S.
Note that this is not a complete list of all the acts that could require a waiver. A waiver can be applied for in Immigration Court, with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, or abroad with a U.S. consulate or embassy.
In most cases, a waiver is used alongside a petition to become a permanent resident in the U.S., to defend oneself against deportation, or to apply to enter the U.S. as a non-immigrant.
