Tampa 601 Waiver Lawyer

Applying for a Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility

When an application for a visa is denied, it may be possible to apply for an I-601 waiver to resolve the issue. This waiver is used to request that inadmissibility be waived for an individual who is applying for a visa, immigration status adjustment, or other immigration benefits. If you need a 601 waivers attorney in Tampa, Gardiner Immigration P.A. provides the advice, compassion, and support our clients need.

Filing for the Waiver

There are certain grounds of inadmissibility that may be waived. Whether a person is eligible will depend on factors that include the reason for inadmissibility. If you have been denied an immigration benefit, it is a good idea to seek advice from a Plantation immigration lawyer. At Gardiner Immigration, we can assess your situation and determine if a waiver is possible in your situation.

The grounds of inadmissibility for which a waiver may be granted may include:

  • Health-related grounds
  • A civil penalty
  • Certain criminal grounds
  • A 3 or 10-year bar resulting from a prior unlawful presence in the U.S.
  • Immigration fraud
  • Membership in a totalitarian party

The likelihood of USCIS approving an I-601 waiver varies, depending on the situation and steps taken to remedy it. For example, a person who was denied based on the vaccination requirement may have the waiver granted if he or she gets the required vaccination or a medical provider certifies that it would not be medically appropriate.

When 601 Waivers are Denied

In the event that you apply for a waiver and it is denied, it is possible to appeal the decision by filing a notice of appeal with USCIS. Prior to submitting a request for a waiver, you may want to consult with a Tampa 601 waivers attorney. We can assess your situation and guide you in applying for the waiver and throughout the immigration process.
