Waiver Description and How to Get One

“A waiver is forgiveness for something that makes you inadmissible. For example, if someone has a J visa and they are required to leave the United States upon expiration of their visa but is now married to a U.S. citizen and wants to remain here, well that person would seek a waiver of that 2-year requirement. Or another example would be someone commits a crime that makes them inadmissible. Well, that person would then seek a waiver to overcome that inadmissibility charge.”
