Waiver Lawyer in Clinton North Carolina
The U.S. government and the immigration system have worked together to prevent the separation of family members from their relatives who are U.S. citizens. If the waiver is approved, people who are currently in the country or have been expelled will be able to stay or come back. It is important that qualifying people apply for a “provisional waiver” before departing the U.S. After the application is accepted and approved, applicants will be able to travel abroad for consular processing which will prevent them to be denied access back into the country. Being granted the waiver also reduces the time that people spend apart from their families.
Who is Eligible to apply for a Waiver?
Applicant must be the beneficiary of an immigrant visa petition as an immediate relative of a U.S. citizen.
The applicant must demonstrate that a U.S. citizen spouse or parent would experience extreme hardship if the applicant was not able to return to the U.S. for three or ten years.
If previously scheduled for a visa interview, the applicant will be disqualified from receiving the waiver.
What can be considered an extreme hardship?
Extreme hardship refers to the cumulative effect of the harm to multiple family members as a result of a family member being removed. Some factors that might be considered an extreme hardship are the following:
-A family member has a disability
-A family member is in the military
-Individual applying for a waiver is the main and only caregiver for his/her family.
-The individual has shown his/her life is at risk
