I-601 Inadmissibility Waivers

Austin Immigration Lawyer Can Help With Your I-601 Inadmissibility Waiver

I-601 Waiver

When a foreign national seeking a visa to enter the United States is deemed inadmissible under U.S. immigration laws for some reason, it MAY be possible for that individual to obtain the needed entry visa under what is known as an I-601 Inadmissibility Waiver.

The “Extreme Hardship” Requirement

In order to obtain a I-601 waiver, the visa applicant must demonstrate that failure to grant the visa will result in an “extreme hardship” to the U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) spouse or parent of the I-601 waiver applicant.

The “extreme hardship” requirements are very stringent and the grant or denial of a waiver is at the discretion of the Secretary of the Homeland Security. The applicant for the waiver must demonstrate with adequate evidence that the hardship to the USC spouse or parent of the applicant will occur not only if the applicant is not admitted to the United States but that it will also occur if that spouse or parent relocates to the country in which the I-601 applicant resides.

Consult a Qualified Immigration Attorney to Assist with an I-601 Waiver

It is very difficult to understand the nuances of U.S. immigration law when it comes to seeking an I-601 waiver. It requires demonstrating to the U.S. Immigration official that the condition which makes the foreign national inadmissible under U.S. immigration laws should be set aside. It is important to retain the services of a qualified immigration attorney.

Ghoshal Law PLLC can help both the U.S. resident and the foreign national I-601 waiver applicant understand the hardship requirements and help them assemble the necessary documentary proof or explanation required to demonstrate hardship.
