When an immigrant is seeking to obtain a visa or change his status in the United States, he or she must be considered “admissible” to the country. Immigrants who are considered “inadmissible” to the United States may find trouble when seeking to obtain an immigrant visa or to change their status, and are required to file for a waiver of certain grounds of inadmissibility. The Philadelphia immigration lawyers at The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C. can help clients in finding eligibility for a waiver to move forward in their process of creating a solid argument to obtain a waiver.
There Are Certain Grounds in which an Inadmissible Alien May Qualify for a Waiver. These Grounds Include:
- Inadmissible on criminal grounds
- Inadmissible on grounds of prior immigration violations
- Inadmissible on grounds of misrepresentation on previous applications
- Inadmissible on health-related grounds
Hiring an Immigration Lawyer in Philadelphia is an important step in obtaining a waiver. Quickly filling out an application before preparing a solid foundation for an argument is an easy way to lose all chances of procuring a waiver. Our lawyers will instead take the time and important steps necessary to determine whether, in fact, a client is inadmissible, and from there plot a course of action to obtain a waiver.
Common reasons for an inadmissible alien to receive a waiver include the applicant having a U.S. citizen as a relative who would experience “extreme hardship” without the applicant and that the applicant deserves a waiver. Whatever the reason, obtaining a waiver will require a well-planned and strategically executed application. Our Philadelphia immigration lawyer who reviews your case will prepare a complete application, and guide you through the entire process.
