Waiver Lawyer in McAllen Texas
The immigration system might seem complicated based on your circumstances, but as experienced attorneys, we believe most cases have a solution. It is very common for tourists or visitors to the U.S. to overstay their visas. This means individuals stay over the 3 to 5 weeks period. If you are in this situation you can apply for a “waiver of inadmissibility.” Like other waivers, applicants are required to provide evidence that their immediate family members would experience extreme hardship if they were not allowed to be in the United States together. If you think you qualify for a waiver call us for a free consultation in McAllen Texas 956-313-9333.
If you entered the United States illegally and have surpassed the 180-day visitation limit, you will need to leave the United States to apply for a green card at a U.S. embassy or consulate. If individuals are registered as having an unlawful presence, the government will implement an order of 3 to 10 years that will block the individual’s access to the country. To avoid this, individuals must apply for a “waiver of inadmissibility” to return to the United States.
However, not everyone is able to apply for a waiver. To qualify, applicants will have to show that they are a “qualifying relative”, meaning that they have a spouse or a parent who is either a U.S. citizen or U.S. green cardholder. Then they must show that they might experience “extreme hardship” after they are not allowed to live in the United States anymore. This means applicants need to prepare evidence showing that their spouse and children might suffer from hardships after leaving the country. It is important that you also provide a strong reason that you and your spouse can’t live together in your home country.
It is essential that you remember that overstaying your visa, remaining in the United States without legal status, and entering the United States illegally can complicate the waiver process.
