Coronavirus Announcement: During the Coronavirus epidemic, our main objective is to provide a safe place for initial office consultations. Therefore, our firm has decided to limit face-to-face consultations except for those individuals who do not have access to Skype or FaceTime, and whose cases maybe too complicated to review without an in-person consultation. Thank you for your understanding during these turbulent times.
If your spouse is not eligible to get a Green Card in the United States. You have to initially file an immediate relative petition for your wife or husband. Then, once that I-130 petition is approved, you now become eligible to file a waiver for your spouse.
President Obama changed the processing of the waiver. It is now called the 601A waiver, or the provisional waiver. You can file that waiver in the United States before your spouse returns to the home country.
If you file the waiver and the waiver is approved, then we will send the spouse back and obtain her Green Card. For example, if you are from Mexico, the great majority of my clients come back within three to six days after their interview in Mexico. Other countries, it’s a little bit longer.
If the waiver is not approved, then we don’t send your spouse back to his or her home country because she won’t be granted the immigrant visa to come back. If you are in this situation, with an experienced immigration attorney, you can win these waivers.
