*****OBAMA’S NEW LAW ON 601 WAIVERS – - SEE NEW IMMIGRATION LAW*****
The I-212 Waiver: A Breakdown of the Waiver Application Process if You Have Been Previously Removed, Deported, or Living Undocumented
The I-212 Waiver can be used to let you re-enter the U.S. if you are currently ineligible to do so. Immigration law says that previous removals from the U.S., including at a port of entry, and unlawful living in the U.S. makes visa applicants ineligible to re-enter the U.S. and ineligible to re-apply for a new immigrant (permanent, resident) visa. The I-212 can be used to waive your ineligibility regardless of previous removal history or history of illegal presence in the U.S.
The I-601 waiver can be used to challenge charges of ineligibility when trying to get a visa or change status to become a permanent resident. If you are ineligible to change your status or get a visa for permanent residence, you may use the I-601 form to attempt to overturn your ineligibility. After submitting the form, the USCIS will review your form and notify you of any change in status.
