Waivers are forms of forgiveness offered by the Government in case you have a criminal conviction or entered the U.S. illegally for instance. You would normally ask for a waiver, or forgiveness, when applying for legal permanent residency, an immigrant visa (through consular processing), or when in Immigration Court. Give us a call if you think you have a criminal conviction or immigration violation you believe is preventing you from obtaining status. You might be surprised to learn that you still qualify.
