Starting March 4, 2013, certain immigrant visa applicants who are spouses, children and parents of U.S. citizens (immediate relatives) can apply for provisional unlawful presence waivers before they leave the United States. Since then, South Florida immigration attorney Jorge l. Delgado has helped many families with their I-601A waiver application.
The provisional unlawful presence waiver process allows individuals, who only need a waiver of inadmissibility for unlawful presence, to apply for a waiver in the United States and before they leave the United States for their immigrant visa interviews at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad. With this waiver, families are separated for only a matter of weeks, if not days, instead of months or even years as it was in the past. The provisional waiver process is available for foreign nationals who among other requirements:
- Are spouses, children, or parents of U.S. citizens.
- Their only immigration violation is their unlawful presence.
- Can demonstrate that refusal of their admission to the United States will cause extreme hardship to their U.S. citizen spouse or parent.
