Obtaining a green card: Is a waiver necessary?
Do you have reason to believe that you qualify for a green card? Are you ready to take action as to gain entrance into the country?
While it may sound relatively simple to obtain a green card, you could soon come to the conclusion that there is a reason why you may not qualify. This could be something such as a criminal conviction or illegal presence.
If you find yourself in this position, you have a couple of options. The easiest thing to do is give up altogether. Of course, this is also the most disappointing outcome.
Your other option is to apply for an immigration waiver. While it’s never easy to obtain an immigration waiver, it’s possible that you may qualify. Even better, when you take the right approach, you may be able to remain in the country while awaiting approval, as opposed to being required to return to your original country.
At our law firm, we have many attorneys on staff who are experienced in green cards and immigration waivers. In many cases, it’s the decisions you make when completing an application that will determine if you receive a waiver or are denied.
Obtaining a green card is more complicated than it appears, especially if you need to request an immigration waiver. Since you don’t want to take any risks, as this could lead to deportation, you should do whatever it takes to make all the right decisions.
As long as you do everything as expected of you, you put yourself in a good position to receive a waiver.
