Waivers for Fraud

Characteristics of Waivers for Immigration Fraud

Prospective immigrants who have committed immigration fraud in the past are ineligible to receive immigration benefits unless they can obtain a waiver.

  • If the fraud involved a false claim to US citizenship after Sep 30, 1996, the foreign national is ineligible for the waiver. Qualified applicants are the spouse or child of a US citizen or legal resident.
  • The foreign national must also demonstrate that their separation from their spouse or parent would constitute extreme hardship on the family. This means that their family will suffer greater hardships than others in similar circumstances.

Even if all the requirements are met, the officer that adjudicates the case may decide to grant or deny the waiver at their discretion, making the acquisition of these waivers complicated.

Our Services

If you are considering immigrating to the United States, contact us for a free consultation. If your previous activity makes you ineligible to immigrate to the US, you may be eligible for a waiver. We can advise you on exactly how this process will work, and give you an idea of what to expect.

We will compile all relevant evidence and present favorable arguments to the U.S. government on your behalf. Our experienced attorneys have helped many other individuals in successfully obtaining legal immigration status and entering the United States, and we can help you as well.
