New hope for certain relatives of U.S. citizens who are presently illegal in the United States.
This 4th of March, 2013, a new process will come into effect through which certain relatives of U.S. citizens who are physically and illegaly present in the United States could ask for a Waiver from the United States government to eliminate their “inadmissibility” and minimize the so called “penalties” of time which currently exist (which could range from 5 to 10 years), and which the U.S. government imposes, outside the United States in order to return to the country once more.
Please note that this is not an easy process and is highly complex. You can review its complexity by reviewing the new rule at: http://www.regulations.gov/#!documentDetail;D=USCIS-2012-0003-3739 where you can see all the terms of the new rule. We recommend that, should you be interested in this new process to be able to help your husband or wife, son or daughter, or father or mother, that you have a meeting or consultation with a lawyer of your choice before you proceed in registering the form, since there are certain details in the new rule which could place in great danger the stay of your relative in the United States if the process is not carried out with detail, legality, and precision.
As always, our Firm is ready to process this type of case and we offer you consultations to advise you regarding your specific case and to determine if this waiver is a viable way and opportunity for your relative. Call us at (407) 649-1404 or contact us through our website.
