Waivers of Inadmissibility

Certain crimes and immigration violations may result in a visa applicant being denied admission to the United States. This is also true for an Adjustment of Status applicant. The immigration laws provide for waivers or pardons for a number of these offenses, especially if the applicant has a close U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent family member who would suffer if the visa applicant is denied a visa or immigration status. A number of factors are usually considered in determining whether the applicant will be granted a waiver, including: the severity of the offense; family ties in the U.S; economic ties to the U.S.; medical condition of the qualifying family member; and length of residence in the U.S.
