IMMIGRATION WAIVERS

The Immigration and Nationality Act section 212 has numerous reasons to cause a person to be found inadmissible to the United States. Grounds of inadmissibility prevent a person from obtaining a green card (lawful permanent residence) and also from obtaining non-immigrant visas.  These waivers, often referred to as “Extreme Hardship Waivers” or “Fraud Waivers” can serve as a waiver for some of these grounds of inadmissibility in certain circumstances.

If USCIS has alleged that you “lied” to the US Immigration or made a misrepresentation, or that you have been convicted of a crime, a waiver may be necessary. Many individuals require waivers due to the manner in which they entered the US or may have unlawfully stayed in the United States.

Outlined below are some of the most common and also important types of immigration waivers.

  • I-601 A Provisional Waiver
  • I-601 Waiver
  • I-212 Waivers
  • 212(h) Waivers
  • J-1 Hardship Waiver
  • J-1 No Objection Waiver
  • J-1 Waiver for Physicians

These waivers are all very complex and can be difficult to navigate. Our attorneys at SHG Immigration Law are highly skilled at preparing and filing them.
