Different Types of Immigration Waivers

There are a number of different immigration waivers that one can receive in order to stay in the U.S. With broad grounds of inadmissibility, there are many people who don’t deserve to be punished with permanent exclusion from the U.S. The immigration lawyers at the law office of Raymond O. Griffith will fight for your ability to come to the U.S. for business, healthcare, or just to visit. Depending on your circumstances, these are a few of the common waivers a previously inadmissible immigrant could obtain:

  • Extreme Hardship — These waivers usually relate to economic detriment, family separations, low educational or employment opportunities, or lack of medical services without access to the U.S.
  • Health-Related Grounds of Inadmissibility — If we can determine that you won’t be a threat to others upon your arrival in the United States, then you may be able to obtain a waiver for inadmissibility on health-related grounds.
  • Fraud and Willful Misrepresentation Waivers — These waivers are for those in extreme hardship who misidentified themselves at some point earlier in their lives. When considering if you have a waivable offense, your surrounding circumstances, your motivations, your age and mental capacity, and whether or not your actions constitute a pattern will all be evaluated.

There are many different types of waivers that someone who has been given inadmissible immigrant status may qualify for. If you think there’s any reason that you should qualify for an immigration waiver, then call the immigration attorneys at the law firm of Raymond O. Griffith and get a lawyer on your side.
