Immigration Waiver

Foreign nationals who wish to visit or immigrate to the United States must be admissible. INA Section 212 lists the grounds of inadmissibility and indicates if it is possible to have the inadmissibility excused via an immigration waiver. Common types of inadmissibility waiver include 601 waiver for unlawful presence, criminal history and misrepresentation; deportation waiver (212 waiver) for prior deportation; 212(d)(3) waiver for nonimmigrants; and J1 waiver for prior J1 exchange visitors who wish to immigrate permanently. Mexico green card applicants can participate in a special Mexico waiver program at the US Consulate in Ciudad de Juarez (CDJ).

Citizenship & Naturalization

Once an immigrant has been a lawful permanent resident (LPR) green card holder for five years, or three if married to a US citizen, he or she can apply for US citizenship through the naturalization process. The applicant must meet several US citizenship requirements such as length of permanent residence, length of physical presence in the US, good moral character and knowledge of English and basic US civics. A citizenship lawyer can assist in obtaining US citizenship by preparing a complete and accurate US citizenship application and attending the citizenship interview.

Did you know…?

A US immigration lawyer does more than just fill out immigration forms. Unfortunately, some immigration applicants do not realize this and complicate or ruin their cases by attempting to handle things by themselves. An immigration lawyer understands the complex immigration laws and how they will be applied by immigration or consular officials to a particular case. Red flags or complexities discovered during the immigration attorney's case work-up would be missed by a self-represented applicant as the immigration forms themselves rarely point out potential pitfalls or problems.
