Immigration Waivers/Perdones De Inmigración in Los Angeles, CA
Attorney Sherwin C. Carballo is extremely experienced at preparing a wide variety of Immigration Waivers (I-601, I-601A, I-212). There are several situations that might cause an Applicant for admission into the United States to require a Waiver. A common fact pattern is if the Applicant has more than 6 months of “unlawful presence” in the United States and needs to exit the U.S. for their immigrant visa interview. Some other situations that require a Waiver are when the Applicant has previously committed fraud or made a false representation to an immigration official, or for prior convictions of “crimes involving moral turpitude.” There are several other reasons why an Applicant for permanent residency might be required to apply for an Immigration Waiver.
The rules regarding Immigration Waivers are amongst the most complex in the entire immigration law system. The first step in your analysis is to determine whether the Applicant even qualifies for a waiver. Once you have determined that the Applicant does qualify, then you will want to know how strong or weak your case is. It is important to note that Immigration Waivers are applications, not just a simple fine. What that means is that just by sending your application and paying the filing fee, you are not guaranteed that immigration will approve your Immigration Waiver. Instead, Immigration Waivers are applications that you have to “win.” You need to convince the immigration officer that the Applicant qualifies, and that the Applicant warrants a favorable decision based upon the standard set-forth by the type of Waiver being sought.
The bottom line is that you need an experienced immigration lawyer to help you assess the situation, and if necessary prepare and file your Immigration Waiver Application. Attorney Sherwin C. Carballo can help assess your situation over the phone, or with an in office consultation.
