You may need a waiver if you:

If a violation of the law or a crime is preventing you from applying for a visa or entering the U.S., a waiver is a very helpful and effective option that can help you move on from the action and maintain or continue seeking immigration status. Some of the many waivers we can help you obtain include:
- Waiver after prior removal
If you were deported from the country and want to apply for a visa before the mandatory waiting period, you can seek a waiver.
- Waiver of unlawful presence
If you are currently in the U.S. illegally but are seeking an immigrant visa, certain individuals may apply for a waiver to avoid the mandatory waiting period.
- Waiver of marijuana possession
If you were charged with or convicted of a marijuana-related crime, waivers are available to help you continue your pursuit of an immigrant visa or adjustment of status.
- General waiver for nonimmigrants
Many nonimmigrants who are inadmissible for any reason may apply for a waiver.
Quite often, even individuals who meet the basic requirements for a given waiver will need to show that they are eligible and qualify for the waiver, specifically based on the extreme hardship in which they have experienced in their home country. Our dedicated and hardworking immigration attorneys can take the time to understand your situation and tailor our services to help you seek and obtain a waiver.
