What Is a Hardship Waiver?

A hardship waiver forgives certain factors that would normally have allowed an adjudicating officer to deny a visa application.

When you apply for a hardship waiver, you are formally asking the U.S. government to overlook:

  • Your unlawful presence
  • Criminal history
  • Fraud or misrepresentation

The waiver will allow you to qualify for lawful permanent residence, so long as you meet all other requirements.

To obtain a hardship waiver, you will need to prove that your deportation or visa denial would cause your qualifying relative (a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident) to experience some form of extreme hardship. Our attorney can help you understand what qualifies as extreme hardship, and he can ensure your waiver application has the highest possible likelihood of approval.

Let Our Attorney Help with Your Case

Hardship waivers involve complex applications, and they require an intimate understanding of legal and evidentiary standards. Because a large percentage of hardship waivers are denied, we urge you to enlist the support of our experienced Cupertino hardship waiver lawyer. He can prepare your waiver application on your behalf, represent you at your USCIS Adjustment of Status interview, and much more.
