Lawyers for Waivers of Inadmissibility in Bensenville, Illinois

There are a number of reasons a foreign national could be deemed inadmissible, which would prevent that person from legally entering the United States or obtaining lawful permanent resident status. Such situations can certainly complicate a person's immigration efforts, but being deemed inadmissible is not necessarily the end of the road. Depending on the circumstances, it may be possible for the person to get a waiver of inadmissibility so that he or she can apply for a green card or visa.

At the Northern Illinois law firm of Unzueta Law Group, P.C., our experienced immigration attorneys have the experience needed to help clients obtain waivers of inadmissibility. If you or a loved one is dealing with issues of inadmissibility, we have the knowledge, skills, and resources to assist you in securing a favorable resolution.

Grounds for Inadmissibility

The United States government has set various standards for foreign nationals who wish to live and work in the U.S., and those who do not meet these standards may be deemed inadmissible. A person could be deemed inadmissible for reasons related to health, criminal activity, immigration fraud, or a history of illegal presence in the United States. Some of the most common grounds for rulings of inadmissibility include:

  • The individual has been diagnosed with a mental or physical illness associated with dangerous behavior;
  • The individual has been convicted of two more crimes and was sentenced to at least five years in prison;
  • The individual intentionally provided false information to immigration officials during the visa or green card application process;
  • The individual was deported or removed previously; or
  • The individual entered the United States illegally or overstayed an expired visa.

Cook County Lawyers Helping Clients Secure Waivers

If you or a loved one has been deemed inadmissible, you may have the option of applying for a waiver of inadmissibility. Your eligibility for a waiver will depend on a number of factors, including the grounds for the initial determination. The attorneys at Unzueta Law Group, P.C. will meet with you to discuss your situation and assist you in filing your Form I-601, also known as the Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility. Your application can be filed with your application for Adjustment of Status (green card) or during deportation or removal proceedings. Those who are not currently in the U.S. can file their waiver application with their application for a visa.

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will review your application and the severity of the grounds of your inadmissibility. There are no guarantees that your waiver will be granted, but our attorneys will help you present a case designed to give you the best chance for success. In many situations, this will involve showing that not granting your waiver will cause unnecessary significant hardship for a current U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident member of your family.
