Attorney Assists With Waivers for Ineligible and Inadmissible U.S. Immigrants in Fairfield County

There are many cases in which a foreign national is found to be inadmissible and denied a visa to enter the United States. In such cases, a waiver of inadmissibility may be available. Waiver requirements vary based on the specific circumstances, however, and the process for obtaining a waiver is highly complex. For this reason, it is always best to work with an experienced immigration attorney who understands this process.

For over 15 years, Gonzalez Law Office, LLC has helped foreign nationals who have been deemed inadmissible by the USCIS. Attorney Hector Gonzalez is skilled and compassionate, and he is committed to doing everything legally possible to help clients overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of their American Dream. Attorney Gonzalez understands the heartache and frustration families go through when one of their relatives is unable to obtain permanent legal status in the U.S. He works closely with clients and goes the extra mile to ensure that families are able to reunite and stay together.

Reasons an Immigrant May Need a Waiver of Inadmissibility

There are several circumstances in which family-based immigrant visas are denied and the applicant needs a waiver of inadmissibility. These include:

  • Health: Waivers are available for certain mental and physical disorders, communicable diseases, and refusal of vaccinations on moral or religious grounds.
  • Prior Deportations/Removals: A foreign national who was previously deported from the U.S. is inadmissible for a period of at least five years. If certain conditions exist, the applicant can apply to have the statutory waiting period waived.
  • Criminal History: If certain conditions are met, waivers of inadmissibility can be sought for crimes committed at least 15 years ago and crimes of moral turpitude.
  • Unlawful Presence: Those who entered the country illegally or overstayed their visa are normally required to wait three or 10 years before applying for lawful permanent resident (LPR) status. A waiver can be sought if you are the spouse or child of a U.S. citizen or LPR and can demonstrate that refusal to grant the waiver would result in extreme hardship.
  • Fraud and Misrepresentation: An intending immigrant who committed fraud or material misrepresentation is inadmissible for life. However, you can still apply for a waiver if you are the spouse or child of a U.S. citizen or LPR and can demonstrate that refusal of admission would result in extreme hardship.

There are certain specific circumstances in which a foreign national may qualify for an inadmissibility waiver. Examples include those who are eligible under the Legal Immigration Family Equity (LIFE) Act, Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA), Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), and refugees seeking asylum.
