Deferred Action, DACA, Waiver Lawyer in Cary, North Carolina
There are different ways in which deportation can be prevented, this includes the deferred action of waivers. These preventatives allow immigrants to stay in the country for a longer period of time.
Extreme Hardship Waiver Eligibility
A 601 Waiver evaluates the family’s situation before or after one family member is deported. The family must show that deportation can affect them critically through lots of evidence. It is important that applicants show correct and accurate information before an immigration judge.
If you meet any of the following requirements, you might qualify for a 601 waiver.
-One of your close relatives has a severe medical issue, therefore she/he is unable to travel.
-You are the main caregiver of a severely ill relative.
-Your country of origin is in a state of war.
-A relative is not able to pay debts by moving abroad.
-If your parents are aging, and you are their main caregiver.
Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility
Immigrants are labeled as inadmissible if they currently have no legal status and have been in the U.S. for more than one year. However, there are exceptions to this rule. Exceptions include having immediate relatives who are U.S. citizens and are in extreme circumstances.
If an immigrant is denied entry into the U.S., they might apply for a 601 waiver. To apply for the waiver, the immigrant’s family needs to show an extreme hardship situation and show why it is essential for the immigrant to enter the country. A hardship is considered extreme only if it is unusual or beyond that which one normally would expect from barred re-entry.
Waiver for Criminal Grounds or Immigration Fraud
It is common for individuals who have committed a crime or immigration fraud to be deported and not be allowed entry again to the U.S. However, there are some exceptions for both situations. If you are applying for a 601 waiver, the government considers the following crimes:
-Conviction of a controlled substance
-Two or more convictions, which the total sentences were five years or more
-Involvement in serious criminal activity who have asserted immunity from prosecution
Just like certain crimes, Immigration fraud may also be forgiven through a 601 waiver as long as the fraud is not classified as marriage fraud. This means that the spouses married out of good faith, not for the means of immigration benefits. Let us find a solution for you, contact us at our Cary, North Carolina location (984) 218-9450.
