The I-601 waiver helps relieve the effects of a number of different inadmissibility issues. These inadmissibility issues include, but are not limited to:


  • Health Reasons

  • Criminal Reasons

  • National Security

  • Public Charge

  • Immigration Fraud

  • Immigration Violations



Not all inadmissibility charges are waivable and it is best that you contact us for a complete investigation of your case to determine if your inadmissibility issue has a solution. However, as a precursor to a conversation please note that all I-601 applicants must have a “Qualifying Relative.” A qualifying relative could be a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse, parent, son, daughter or even a US citizen fiancé(e), depending on the specific grounds of admissibility you are seeking to waive. In addition, the applicant must prove that a denial of the I-601 waiver application will cause extreme hardship to your qualifying relative.*



* The following are a couple of arguments the applicant can make to prove the extreme hardship to the Qualifying Relative: 1) The Qualifying Relative has a medical condition and depends on the foreign-born person for care; 2) The Qualifying Relative is financially dependent on the foreign-born one and it will not be possible to provide adequate support from abroad; 3) The Qualifying Relative has financial debts in the United States and cannot pay them without support from the foreign-born relative; 4) The Qualifying Relative has a sick family member and will be unable to care for that person without support from the foreign-born relative; 5) The Qualifying Relative is the caregiver for children and cannot afford childcare in the absence of the foreign-born relative; 6) The Qualifying Relative is experiencing clinical depression as a result of this immigration situation.
