Immigration Waivers

“The Right Immigration Attorney Makes All The Difference”

Waivers are petitions that absolve the grounds for inadmissibility keeping an individual from entering or obtaining permanent residence in the United States. Waivers are available for individuals seeking both nonimmigrant and immigrant visas, as well as for individuals applying for adjustment of status in the United States.

Waivers for guests in the United States, nonimmigrants, waive almost all grounds of inadmissibility, except those involving serious security and foreign policy considerations. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) adjudicates nonimmigrant waivers.

Immigrants and those applicants seeking adjustment of status may also obtain extreme hardship waivers (I-601 waivers) to pardon crime-related grounds of inadmissibility, the five and ten year bars for unlawful presence in the United States, fraud, misrepresentation, and medical conditions, as well as the two-year home residency requirement for J-1 or J-2 visa holders. Again, USCIS decides these cases with the exception of certain J waivers which are granted by the U.S. Department of State.

May Law Group, LLC, has vast experience in filing both immigrant and nonimmigrant waivers of admissibility.
