Immigration Representation Here & Across the World

Under Immigration law, various types of “waivers” are available to help you fight the adverse consequences you may be facing in an immigration case. For example, you may be deemed inadmissible for entry into the U.S. The grounds for inadmissibility vary and are based on certain categories. However, in some cases, you may be able to apply for a waiver that allows you to overcome the grounds for inadmissibility that will result in being able to apply for an immigration entry visa.

At Velloza & Associates, LLC, we can assist you in applying for the right type of waiver based on why you have been declared inadmissible or on the facts and circumstances of your specific immigration case. We understand the complexities of U.S. immigration law in these matters and are devoted to helping our clients find favorable solutions to immigration problems and rejections.

Immigration Waivers

Immigration waivers allow you to overcome negative consequences to your immigration status or ability to remain in the U.S.

Examples of these waivers include:

  • Waiver to Avoid Deportation after a Criminal Conviction
  • Immigration Waiver of Inadmissibility for Criminal Acts
  • Waiver of Inadmissibility for Non-immigrants
  • Provisional Unlawful Presence Waivers
  • Waiver for Permission to Reapply after deportation

In the matter of inadmissibility, various reasons exist for declaring someone inadmissible into the U.S. under federal law.

These can include but are not limited to:

  • Health-related grounds
  • Criminal convictions
  • National security grounds
  • Risk of becoming a “public charge”
  • Illegal entry into the country such as based on fraud or misrepresentation

1-601 Inadmissible Waiver

One type of waiver that may be available for you is known as the I-601 Inadmissible Waiver. Under this waiver, you will have to demonstrate that, should you not be allowed entry or a visa, it will create “extreme hardship” for your spouse or parent living here who is either a U.S. citizen or a green card holder. No specific formula exists for securing this waiver. They are granted or denied at the discretion of the Department of Homeland Security.

The standard for obtaining this waiver is rigorous. You must not only show that your family member would be placed in extreme hardship if you were not admitted to the U.S. but your family member would also suffer this hardship if he/she were made to relocate to wherever you would reside abroad.

An application based on extreme hardship can be applicable in cases involving criminal convictions, fraud, and more.
