Waivers

Orlando Immigration Waivers Lawyers

Making You Admissible for Residency in the U.S.

A waiver is forgiveness for something making someone inadmissible for residency in the United States. If you violated U.S. law and are not a full U.S. citizen, you could be subject to deportation. However, thanks to U.S. waiver laws, you can receive a pardon for minor criminal offenses and maintain your residency.

At Lim Law, P.A., our experienced immigration waiver attorneys in Orlando can review your case and advise you on whether or not you are likely to receive a waiver. You cannot usually apply for an appeal if a waiver is denied, so it is important you utilize all of the resources available when you apply.

Call us today at (407) 512-9919 to request a free in-person consultation. We also offer over-the-phone consultations for a fee.

What Makes Someone Inadmissible?

There are several reasons a person could be considered inadmissible for citizenship or residency in the U.S.

Some grounds for inadmissibility to the United States include:

  • Criminal record You were arrested for a crime in your home country or committed a crime while in the United States.
  • Illegal residency – You were previously removed or deported from the U.S.
  • Health concerns – You have a contagious disease or mental health disorder (such as addiction) posing a threat to a community.
  • Economic concerns – You do not have the means to earn enough income in the U.S. without relying on government benefits.
  • Fraud – There is evidence you lied to or misled immigration services.
  • Moral concerns – You are planning to practice beliefs harmful to the public good, such as polygamy.
  • Security concerns – There is evidence you are linked to a foreign or terrorist agency.

Many of these inadmissibility factors can be overcome with a waiver. For instance, people with an addiction may be able to receive a waiver allowing for temporary residency. Your reason for coming to the U.S. will play a major role in whether or not you are granted the waiver. Continuing with the addiction example, an applicant may state temporary residency is important for their recovery if they plan on utilizing rehab services.
