Immigration waivers may be option for those ruled inadmissible

| May 20, 2020 | Uncategorized

The path to admission into the United States can be complex and difficult. In many cases, hopeful immigrants in Florida may not have a clear way forward through any of the traditional immigration channels. In these situations, the only option for someone previously ruled inadmissible may be to see if any immigration waivers may be appropriate.

One of the most commonly sought immigration waivers is the I-601 extreme hardship waiver. This option is appropriate in cases where an immigrant who cannot get admission has family members who are already citizens or have lawful permanent residence. Like the name suggests, there must be evidence that removal of the individual or continued delays in admission into the United States would cause extreme hardship.

Another waiver option is a provisional waiver for unlawful presence, and there is also a waiver for returning after removal. This specific waiver grants a person who is inadmissible permission to come back into the country depending on the circumstances of the original removal. With any type of waiver or immigration application, the chance of success is higher when working with an experienced Florida legal professional.

Immigration waivers offer those with no other immigration options the opportunity to live and work in the United States lawfully. If someone believes he or she may have grounds to seek a waiver due to being inadmissible, it may help to start with an assessment of the individual circumstances. This step can reveal the options available in the individual situation and make it clear how to move forward in pursuit of immigration goals.
