Immigration Waiver Attorney


An immigration waiver is a formal request to the United States
government for permission to enter or remain in the country
despite having a past immigration violation. This request is
usually made by people who have been deported or who are otherwise
inadmissible to the United States.

Grounds of inadmissibility include:

  • Health-related grounds
  • Criminal convictions
  • Security risks
  • Illegal immigration history
  • Unlawful presence in the United States

If granted, a waiver allows the person to enter or remain in the
United States for a specific period of time and for a specific
purpose. Here at Olubusayo Fasidi PC, our immigration waiver
attorney can help you determine your eligibility for a waiver and
guide you through the application process.

Grounds of inadmissibility include:

  • Assessment of grounds for inadmissibility
  • Determination of waiver eligibility
  • Preparation and filing of waiver application
  • Representation at interviews or hearings
  • Appeals

If granted, a waiver allows the person to enter or remain in the
United States for a specific period of time and for a specific
purpose. If you or a loved one is facing deportation or
inadmissibility to the United States, contact our experienced
immigration waiver attorney today. We will review your case and
help you explore your options for staying in the United States.

Types of Waivers

I-601 Waiver

The most common type of waiver is the I-601 waiver, also known
as the Extreme Hardship Waiver. To be eligible for this
waiver, you must demonstrate that your U.S. citizen or lawful
permanent resident spouse or parent would experience extreme
hardship if you were not allowed to enter or remain in the
United States.

What is “Extreme Hardship”?

There is no one definition of extreme hardship. However, USCIS
considers several factors when determining whether someone
would experience extreme hardship, including:

  • The health of the applicant or their spouse or parent
  • The financial impact of the applicant’s absence
  • The education of the applicant or their children
  • The applicant’s ties to their home country
  • The length of time the applicant has been in the United
    States
  • The conditions in the applicant’s home country
To be eligible for an I-601 waiver, you must have a qualifying
relative who would experience extreme hardship if you were not
allowed to enter or remain in the United States.
A qualifying relative is typically a spouse or parent, but in
some cases, it may also be a child over the age of 21.

I-601A Provisional Waiver

The I-601A Provisional Waiver is a newer type of waiver that
was introduced in 2013. This waiver is available to people who
are inadmissible to the United States on the grounds of
unlawful presence. To be eligible for this waiver, you must
demonstrate that your U.S. citizen or lawful permanent
resident spouse or parent would experience extreme hardship if
you were not allowed to enter or remain in the United States.

I-212 Waiver

The I-212 waiver is also known as the Reentry Permit Waiver.
This waiver is available to people who have been previously
deported from the United States or who have been denied
admission at a port of entry. To be eligible for this waiver,
you must demonstrate that your U.S. citizen or lawful
permanent resident spouse or parent would experience extreme
hardship if you were not allowed to enter or remain in the
United States.

I-192 Waiver

The I-192 waiver is also known as the Advance Permission to
Enter as a Nonimmigrant. This waiver is for people who are
inadmissible to the United States but who need to enter the
country for business, pleasure, or other reasons. To be
eligible for this waiver, you must demonstrate that:

  • Your reason for entering the United States is compelling
  • You pose no threat to national security or public safety
  • You are likely to obey the terms of your visa
The I-192 waiver is typically used by people who have minor
criminal convictions or who have been previously deported from
the United States.

Do I Need a U.S. Immigration Waiver Attorney?

  1. Do you have enough evidence to prove that you or your
    qualifying relative would experience extreme hardship if
    you were not allowed to enter or remain in the United
    States?
  2. Can you navigate the complex U.S. immigration system on
    your own?
  3. Do you have time to gather the necessary evidence and
    paperwork for your waiver application?
If you answered “no” to any of these questions, then you
should consider hiring a U.S. immigration attorney to help
you with your waiver application.
An experienced immigration attorney can help you gather the
necessary evidence and paperwork, and can represent you in
front of USCIS if necessary.
Additionally, an immigration attorney can help you
understand the waiver process and answer any questions you
may have.
