Waiver Lawyer in Immokalee Florida
Like any other immigration reform, there are certain requirements beneficiaries have to meet. First, beneficiaries have to be in the U.S. as well as have an immediate relative who is a United States citizen.
Type of Waivers
There are three different types of waivers
Sometimes deportation or family separation can be avoided with a waiver. If you are dealing with a removal case but your spouse, fiancé, or children are who are U.S. citizens, then removal can be avoided. However, individuals also have to demonstrate that their dependents would be affected drastically if the family member is removed.
I-601A Provisional Waivers
This waiver allows immediate family members of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (who are unlawfully present in the U.S.) to apply for a provisional waiver while still in the United States. Most of the time this happens when individuals overstay their visa or unlawfully enter the country. As well as the other waivers, individuals have to prove that their life could be affected negatively.
If the individual currently resides in another country besides the U.S., they can apply for early readmission into the U.S. after having been previously removed and before they have met a period of stay outside the U.S. Some individuals have 3 or 10 years of stay outside of the country.
How can you apply for a Waiver?
Waivers can be filled at two different locations, either at a point of entry or at the U.S. consulate in your home country. At the U.S. consulate, an officer will review your visa application. Later they may set you up for another interview so that you can provide your waiver application. When it comes to applying on a port of entry, it has to be done by nationals who are Visa-exempt.
