Waivers of Inadmissibility
If you are not a US Citizen or lawful permanent resident, getting permission from the US government to move to or visit the United States can be a difficult process. Even though an individual may have someone to sponsor them for a green card, or may have a legitimate reason to come for a visit, certain aspects of that person’s background may require them to obtain an immigration waiver before being granted the immigration benefit that they desire. Immigration waivers are not easy to get. Waivers of are offered on a limited basis and are discretionary.
Various waivers exist for certain bans, such as Form I-601 waiver to waive inadmissibility due to visa overstay or unlawful presence and criminal convictions, I-601A stateside waivers, I-212 waivers for prior orders of deportation, I-212H for certain criminal convictions, and I-212(d)(3) for nonimmigrant waivers.
I-601A Waiver of Inadmissibility
A new U.S. Department of Homeland Security rule allows you to remain inside of the United States while your waiver request is adjudicated. You no longer have to risk being stuck outside of the country. You can remain with your family until it is approved.
I-601 Waiver of Inadmissibility
You may be able to waive your bar to admission into the United States with an I-601 waiver of inadmissibility. Once approved, you will be able to enter the U.S. with an immigrant visa.

We hired her firm over a year ago and after a long battle where she led us through all the hoops and many unforeseen obstacles. Many times we felt the difficulties, she never gave up on us and helped us through our hard time. Thank you and your firm for fighting for us and working so hard for making my dream of living in the US a reality.
Ms. Julia helped through the immigration process and she was highly professional and helpful through the entire process!
She is superbly efficient and professional. From beginning to end I have felt comfortable and secure in her judgment and I have nothing but praise and recommendation for her.
I have only been her client for a short time but she is very knowledgeable and responds to you in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend her to friends.
My wife is undergoing heart surgery, and due to the nature of my job I would be needing someone to take care my wife while I am under Military deployment. I talked to different lawyers but no one says that it is possible to bring my wife's niece from outside the US. Ms. Cueva however, made it possible to bring my wife's niece into the US as her caretaker for one year while I am overseas. She did so with a positive attitude and was very helpful in the process. Ms. Cueva was very kind and respectful and determined to get the job done.
