Guiding You Through Your Options

Immigration laws and procedures can be complex and complicated. With several different processes, each with their own set of qualifications, you may be overwhelmed or come to think that you don't have any real options. At the Law Office of Isaias Torres, we offer comprehensive services to immigrants with questions regarding status.

Waiver Of Inadmissibility

There are strict qualifications noncitizens must meet in order to seek admission and residence in the U.S. If you do not meet these specifications, you may be deemed inadmissible. Common reasons for ineligibility include:

  • Criminal activity
  • Previous deportation orders
  • Public dependency issues
  • Immigration violations

In some instances, you may apply for an inadmissibility waiver to have your case evaluated. If your waiver is granted, the embassy will be able to issue you a visa. This process can be long and complicated. A skilled attorney will guide you through every step.

Waivers For Extreme Hardship

When family members are in a state of crises, it is possible to apply for a hardship waiver. In order to qualify for this waiver you must prove that an extreme hardship has occurred, and you must have a family member who is a lawful permanent resident.

Common cases of hardship include:

  • Major medical issues that make travel unsafe
  • Medical condition that requires family member assistance
  • Health issues that cannot be treated in the individual's home country
  • Debts could not be paid if the individual is deported
  • Aging family members that require assistance

Take Action Immediately

Old laws required that individuals who came to the U.S. illegally leave the country before filing for residency. These waivers now allow individuals to apply while remaining in the country.
