Waiver of Inadmissibility(“Pardon”)


What is Inadmissibility?

Certain factors in a non-U.S. Citizen individual’s history may violate U.S. immigration law and render him or her “Inadmissible,” or legally ineligible for immigration benefits or relief, such as Lawful Permanent Residence (“Green Card”). 

What are some Factors that Affect Eligibility? 

There are many factors under U.S. immigration law that can trigger ineligibility

Some common factors concern a non-U.S. Citizen individual’s U.S. travel history, compliance with the terms and conditions of his or her U.S. nonimmigrant visa, unlawful entry and unlawful presence in the United States, history of criminal convictions regardless of whether in the United States or abroad, history of fraud or misrepresentation to a U.S. immigration official, or history of prior deportation from the United States. 

What is a Waiver of Inadmissibility?

A Waiver of Inadmissibility often referred to as a “pardon,” is a legal remedy provided under U.S. Immigration law that allows an individual to ameliorate or cure certain inadmissibility grounds triggered by factors in a non-U.S. citizen’s background. 

The filing of an application for a Waiver of Inadmissibility does not guarantee approval by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. In the process of reviewing an individual’s eligibility for a Waiver of Inadmissibility, USCIS will review an individual’s application for proper filing. USCIS will also require an individual to submit to background checks. In reviewing the evidence to determine an individual’s eligibility for a Waiver of Inadmissibility, USCIS will weigh both the  positive factors and negative factors in an individual’s case and whether the evidence submitted clearly proves eligibility. 

Why Consult an Experienced Immigration Attorney? 

Applying for U.S. immigration benefits or relief, such as a Waiver of Inadmissibility, is an important decision to invest in and secure your and your family’s future in the United States. 

Not everyone will qualify for a Waiver of Inadmissibility. An experienced Immigration Lawyer will be able to review your case to determine if you qualify under the U.S. Immigration Laws. If you do qualify to file a Waiver of Inadmissibility, an experienced Immigration Lawyer will give you the necessary guidance to present your best case to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The process of applying for U.S. immigration benefits or relief can feel daunting for an individual without experience with the legal system. A misstep can result in the rejection of a case, processing delays, or even the denial of a case. With so much on the line, why go it alone or settle for an inexperienced attorney?

    I was nervous about this whole process. We were going to look at different lawyers and after meeting her everything felt right. This is definitely one investment that I do not regret doing, it was well worth it. In the initial meeting we got all the information we needed she was upfront about cost and processing times, no hidden fees, and offered a payment plan as well. Throughout the process we were in constant communication, and would answer my questions in a timely manner. As the interview date got closer we had a zoom call to prepare and that helped tremendously, she was thorough and we took our time. The day of the interview, she took care of everything from the moment we walked in, knowing she was representing us made this experience so much better. Nothing compares to walking into the interview stress free and with confidence.
