“After a U.S. Senator could not help us get out of our country, someone told our friend in Port Townsend to contact Seifert Law Offices to help. The office immediately started my case. In less than a month the paper work was done and we were out of Guinea by January 2001. Had we not obtained the visas and stayed in Guinea we would not be alive to tell this story. Thank God we are now in the States, united with our daughter, sound and safe and thank God for Seifert Law Offices.”
The immigration legal system is complex. We help people who would otherwise not qualify for status determine whether an exception or waiver might allow an application to go forward. I-601A Provisional Waivers permit relatives of legal residents and citizens to seek permanent status. Parole status (military, humanitarian, etc.,) is another type of exception that can be applied to allow an application to proceed.
I-601A Provisional Waivers are available to spouses and some other relatives of U.S. citizens and permanent residents. This waiver, which can be sought inside the U.S., eliminates the requirement that a person remain outside the U.S. for ten years due to unlawful or illegal presence in the U.S. Since the program began in 2013, our office has successfully helped over 30 families navigate the visa and consular interview process.
Parole status is a legal exception where the government creates a legal entry so that the immigrant may be eligible to enter the U.S. or to adjust status inside the U.S. Examples of parole include humanitarian parole and Military Parole in Place or PIP. Talk to us to see if a waiver or parole could work in your case.
Other waivers include I-601 waivers (applied for outside the U.S.) I-212 waivers (sought as part of a green card or removal process), and numerous other criminal and immigration waivers, which may be required when immigration has determined that a person is ineligible to obtain a visa.
