Can I get an unlawful presence waiver while still in the United States?

New Jersey I-601A Provisional Waiver Attorneys

A program that was enacted on March 4, 2013, now allows family members of U.S. citizens whom are foreign nationals and present in the country illegally to apply for a I-601A waiver while still within the United States. If their waiver is approved, then they can apply for an immigrant visa within their home country. The reason this program has been created is to help shorten the processing time of the waivers, and bring families together much sooner. So now with form I-601A, illegal immigrants can apply for the waiver before they return to their home country and then apply for an immigrant visa while inside their home country. What could be years of separation from their families, now can be resolved in a few days or weeks. However, to make sure you are eligible for this waiver and that everything is processed and filed correctly, having a highly skilled New Jersey I-601A provisional waiver lawyer is ideal.
