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.
