Immigration Waivers Lawyers Columbia, MD

Immigration Waivers Attorney Maryland

Some immigrants need a waiver because they engaged in certain conduct outside the country which makes them inadmissible to the United States. Others may have engaged in certain conduct that causes the US government to initiate removal proceedings against them. Both classes of immigrants may be eligible for certain types of waivers. Said & Associates has many years of experience in representing clients with both types of waivers.





Unlawful Presence Waiver

Spouses and children of US citizens and lawful permanent residents who have unlawfully entered the country and accumulated unlawful presence, may be eligible to apply for a provisional waiver to waive unlawful presence. Under this waiver, you can only waive the unlawful presence. If you have other grounds of inadmissibility like a criminal conviction, this waiver is not for you. This is a favorable waiver for spouses or children of United States citizens as it permits them to continue to reside with their families until the waiver is approved before departing the country for a visa interview at a US Embassy in your country. We have successfully worked with families who, after the waiver, travelled to their country for about two weeks before they were issued the immigrant visa.

It is extremely important to be honest with your attorney before starting this unlawful presence waiver as any facts unknown to your attorney, like recreational marijuana use, certain medical conditions, or past immigration history can cause your visa to be denied.

These waivers involve interviews with lay or expert witnesses and review of many documents to shape your hardship narrative specifically to you. Said & Associates will guide you through every step in the process and use our best faith efforts to help you present your case. We know how stressful these processes can be for you and your family. Our mission is to successfully secure your waiver for you.

Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility

Whether your grounds of inadmissibility are in relation to criminal history, a prior removal order, fraud or misrepresentation, our team of expert immigration attorneys are here to help you.
