Facing deportation? Our experienced immigration waiver attorneys could help you find relief.
Let’s face it: everyone makes mistakes. In some ways, the complexity of the US immigration and naturalization bureaucracy practically invites mistakes. Whether you have made an innocent mistake out of ignorance of the law, deliberately misrepresented yourself on an official form, or been convicted of a crime, waivers may offer relief from deportation and admissibility restrictions.
Types of Waivers
There are several different types of immigration waivers that may be useful:
- Unlawful Presence Waiver: Allows individuals who entered the US unlawfully to either remain in the country (avoid deportation) or return earlier than would normally be permitted, in order to prevent hardship on a spouse or child who is a US citizen or lawful resident.
- Misrepresentation Waiver: Allows individuals who lied to US officials in order to be admitted to the US to avoid deportation under certain circumstances.
- Criminal Conviction Waiver: Available to individuals who have committed a crime of moral turpitude or been convicted of certain minor crimes but can show evidence of rehabilitation. A qualifying relative is required.
- Medical Condition Waiver: Allows entry to individuals diagnosed with certain specific illnesses that would normally make them inadmissible, provided they have a spouse, parent, or child who is a US citizen or lawful permanent resident.
In most cases, evidence proving that not allowing the inadmissible individual entry would place an extreme burden on their family is a key part of a successful waiver application.

How Do I File for a Waiver?
Filing for a waiver is more complicated than just filling out the waiver form. You also need to make sure you are eligible for the waiver and secure or complete all other necessary paperwork.
So how do you do that?
Hire an immigration attorney. The best way to figure out if you can apply for a waiver and prepare the strongest possible application for that waiver is to let a skilled immigration attorney do it for you. Why spend your time poring over the USCIS website trying to figure out what you have to do when we’ve already done this research for you?
