If you do not currently have any immigration status in the United States, but you have a husband, wife, adult son or daughter, or parent who is a U.S. citizen, you may be able to apply for a waiver of your undocumented presence in the United States. You may have been told before that you were not eligible to file an immigration application, but this newly announced immigration waiver will allow you to obtain permanent resident status in the United States by traveling to your native county for a short time for an interview, where you will retrieve your permanent visa.
In order to receive this immigration waiver, you will need to prove that you have a sufficiently close U.S. citizen relative (parent, spouse, or adult son or daughter) and that your U.S. citizen relative would suffer an extreme hardship if you are not granted permanent resident status in the United States. The government has announced that it will begin accepting these immigration waiver applications on March 4, 2013.
Our immigration attorneys have plenty of experience with proving the type of hardship that the government looks for in applications like these. We can review your immigration background with you and help you to decide which immigration waiver application is right for you. With the right information, you can avoid filing the wrong application or filing an application without the right type of evidence.
