What Are Immigration Waivers?

Immigration waivers allow people to request forgiveness when they are inadmissible to the United States. Waivers apply to individuals seeking an immigrant visa, adjustment of status, and some nonimmigrant statuses. By obtaining a waiver of inadmissibility, applicants may be allowed to enter or remain in the U.S., despite their initial ineligibility.

Eligibility for immigration waivers varies based on individual cases. Typically, applicants must show that denial would result in extreme hardship for a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent citizen. “Extreme hardship” can include financial difficulties, health issues, or educational disruptions.

Applicants must provide substantial evidence to support their claims and receive a waiver. Our team can help you determine if you are eligible for a waiver. Then, we can help you file strong applications. Afterward, we pay close attention, helping make sure the process stays on track. Our team focuses on clear, strategic steps to enhance your chances of obtaining a waiver.

What Is the Consular Process?

The immigration consular process involves several key steps for individuals seeking a visa or a green card.

Here are the steps to take when going through the consulate:

  1. Determine Your Basis to Immigrate
    First, you must investigate your eligibility for immigrating to the United States. Our team can look at your circumstances and help you with this step.
  2. File the Immigrant Petition
    After establishing your eligibility, you must file an immigrant petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
  3. Wait for a Decision on Your Petition
    Following submitting your petition, you must wait for a USCIS decision regarding your case.
  4. NVC Processing
    Once your petition is approved, it is forwarded to the National Visa Center (NVC) for further processing.
  5. Pay Fees
    As part of the process, you must pay fees related to your visa application.
  6. Submit Required Documents
    You must complete and submit all the required civil and financial documents as part of your visa application.
  7. Interview and Approval
    Consular processing typically involves an interview with a consular officer at a U.S. embassy or consulate in a foreign embassy. This step can finalize the process for obtaining a green card.
  8. Receive Notification
    After completing all the necessary steps, you await notification regarding your application’s status.

This complex, time-consuming process is hard to handle on your own. Our team is here to help you apply through the consulate and work toward getting your visa or green card.
