Immigration Waivers

Legal Guidance for Immigration Matters in San Jose

What is preventing you from getting the immigration benefit you can qualify for? Is it a crime in your past? Did you make a representation to immigration that was false? There are many reasons why an individual, either because of a past criminal history or a past immigration violation, becomes inadmissible for the relief they are seeking. That relief could be a non-immigrant visa at the Consulate or it could be a green card.

San Jose lawyer Yemi Getachew has successfully applied for waivers for individuals that were refused admission at the airport for visa problems by applying for waivers at the Consulate. In other circumstances when an individual cannot obtain a green card either because of a crime in the past or other grounds, Yemi has prepared and submitted winning waiver packages. For individuals who were ordered to be deported and have to wait five or ten years, Yemi has won waivers and reunited families in a relatively short period of time.

Types of Immigration Waivers

As a San Jose attorney, Yemi helps individuals and families with the following types of immigration waivers:

  • Waiver (I-212): If you have been deported and barred from visa eligibility for a certain amount of time, such as 5, 10, or 20 years, or even permanently, you may be able to file Form I-212 to request permission to reapply before this time period is up.
  • Waiver (I-601): If you are a relative of a U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident, you may be able to seek a waiver of inadmissibility on grounds of unlawful presence due to an extreme hardship your family member would suffer if you were to leave the U.S.

Applying for an immigration waiver is not always easy, particularly due to the amount of information and evidence that must be supplied to the USCIS to obtain approval. Approval is subjective and based upon the unique situation at hand. A skilled lawyer can greatly improve your ability to obtain approval in a timely manner by properly handling your waiver.
