How do I get rid of an unlawful presence bar?

New Jersey Waiver Lawyers

The United States Congress passed a law in 1996 that bars foreign nationals from entering the country who have previously been in the country illegally for certain periods of time. For example, if you are a foreign national who had been in the United States illegally for 180 days or more after April 1, 1997 and then left the country, you cannot enter the United States for three years. If you had been in the United States illegally for a year or more after April 1, 1997, then you can’t enter the United States for ten years! These restrictions apply to individuals who have entered the country illegally who try to reenter the country after being deported. And if you are an illegal alien who has committed fraud, you can be barred from entering the United States for life. The only way around these restrictions is to apply for a waiver.

To receive a waiver, Form I-601 needs to filled out and submitted to USCIS. This form must demonstrate that another American citizen or legal permanent resident would experience extreme hardship unless the waiver was accepted. In order to make sure to stress the need for this foreign individual to return to the United States is projected properly, hiring a smart, tough waiver attorney is in your best interest.
