Many individuals need to get a “waiver” in order to qualify for a green card. There are many types of waivers because there are many reasons that someone might be disqualified from getting a green card. One of the most common types is the I-601A Provisional Waiver, which allows many people to “waive” time spent unlawfully in the US before going to an interview in their home country.
The first step in a waiver case, or any immigration case, is to make sure you are following the right path. A free consultation with Joseph Muller can take a little as 30 minutes to assess the best options available.
What Can A Lawyer Do For Me?
Lawyers help guide people through their legal process, starting with a consultation where the individual’s best options are determined. Not having a full legal consultation is a huge mistake. A lawyer should be able to tell you before you start any paperwork whether or not you’re on the right path. There’s no reason to skip this step, especially when you can schedule a consultation for free.
After the consultation, the lawyer determines what kinds of paperwork is necessary and can help locate key documents. For waivers in particular, the forms are only a small part of the process. A waiver package may include hundreds of pages in supporting evidence to demonstrate that the applicant meets the legal standard. People may work with counselors, therapists, doctors, and other professionals to prepare their evidence, depending on the particular case. No two cases are exactly the same, and an experienced lawyer will help determine the strengths and weaknesses.
