Waivers of Inadmissibility
The most common grounds of inadmissibility are a result of prior immigration violations, criminal records and misrepresentations to the U.S. government.
A widespread ground of inadmissibility arises from a period of unlawful presence followed by an exit from the United States. A waiver is available for foreign nationals that entered the United States illegally on one occasion. This waiver is only available to those that have U.S. citizen or permanent residence spouses or parents.
Crime-related impact on immigration
The Immigration & Nationality Act makes many crimes a basis for inadmissibility, thus requiring a waiver to overcome the ineligibility. A common ground of criminal inadmissibility results from a conviction for a “crime involving moral turpitude” which often involves theft, fraud, and other forms of dishonesty. In fact, not all crimes are eligible for waivers. Generally, convictions involving a controlled substance are ineligible for a waiver. A careful analysis is very important in determining whether a waiver is available.
