One example of the complexity of immigration law comes in the form of waivers. While there are various grounds of “inadmissibility” for foreign nationals, just because an individual falls under an inadmissibility category does not mean that you will be denied entry or benefits. In certain circumstances, individuals may request a “waiver.” Areas in which waivers are most commonly requested include:
- Economic reasons
- Fraud or willful misrepresentation
- Unlawful presence
Waivers usually require extensive documentary proof and argument to meet the standards required to waive such inadmissibility grounds.
For example, for the I-601 and the I-601A waivers for unlawful presence, a foreign national must show that a parent or spouse would suffer extreme hardship if they were denied admission into the United States.
