Provisional Unlawful Presence Waivers


The attorneys at the Law Offices of Michael M. Felix are happy to report that we are now preparing Provisional Unlawful Presence Waivers so that our clients can present these waivers during their Immigrant Visa interviews at American Embassies and/or Consulates abroad. We currently have a 100% success rate with Provisional Unlawful Presence Waivers.

As you may already be aware, foreign nationals who are not eligible to apply for Permanent Residency inside the United States must travel abroad and obtain an Immigrant Visa. However, foreign nationals who have accrued more than 180 days of unlawful presence normally face a 10 year ban punishment which is imposed when they attend their Immigrant Visa interviews abroad. Fortunately, foreign nationals can apply for a Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver prior to attending their Immigrant Visa interviews and avoid being subjected to this 10 year ban punishment.

Please keep in mind that in order to qualify for the Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver, the foreign nationals must meet the following criteria:

1. The individual must be an immediate relative of a U.S. Citizen (spouse, child or parent)

2. The individual must ONLY be inadmissible due to one count of unlawful presence

3. The individual must be able to demonstrate that a denial of the Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver would result in extreme hardship to the U.C. Citizen relative.

If you would like to discuss your case in hopes of obtaining a Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver, please call us today at (562) 464-6934 for a free consultation.
