When Immigration Waivers Are Needed – A Couple Considerations
Immigration waivers are used as a basis to waive grounds of inadmissibility blocking a client from being able to move forward with his or her temporary or permanent visa to the United States. We discuss two unique tips here that increase one’s chance to qualify for waivers. First, when a qualifying relative with hardship seems not available. Second, the unique procedure of the new I-601A waiver.
Common law marriage. Hardship to a qualifying relative is generally required to be eligible for a variety of waivers. It is important to consider if one’s state recognizes common law marriage, as this may be an option if one has been in a long term relationship.
Procedure for Waivers I-601(a). The I-601(a) has different procedures, and is the latest waiver which allows individuals who Entered Without Inspection (“EWI”) to be eligible for Permanent Resident Status. Ensure that the National Visa Center (“NVC”) fee bill is paid prior to filing. Once the waiver is approved the rest of the documents should be submitted for processing with NVC. For smoothest processing including the I-864 and DS 260 and supporting documents are included.
