  • Physically present in the United States
  • At least 17 years of age
  • Otherwise admissible into the country
  • Currently awaiting a consular interview date

If you are not sure whether you qualify for the waiver of inadmissibility, you will want to schedule a consultation with the firm. The Cupertino immigration lawyer at the firm can help you through each step of the process, including determining eligibility and submitting an application.

Preparing Form I-601

The application process to waive grounds for inadmissibility is complex and may seem very intimidating without proper explanation of what is required. You must answer every question when the space is given. When a question cannot be answered, respond with "N/A."

Depending on your circumstances, you will either submit the form before or after being found inadmissible. If you know in advance that you meet a ground for inadmissibility, you will want to submit the form before it is requested. If you have been denied based on a ground of inadmissibility, you will want to follow the instructions given by the immigration authority.

If you need assistance with the preparation of the form or with any other aspect of your case, speak with the Law Office of Timothy D. Widman.
