If you have been found in violation of a US immigration law related to something in your background as you applied for a visa, green card or have been placed in removal proceedings you may need to obtain an immigration waiver. Each waiver has different requirements, but most waivers require some showing of hardship to a qualifying legal relative.
Waiver are used for many reasons, including:
- You have made a false misrepresentation or fraud regarding your immigration status.
- You lacked required documentation.
- You were in the U.S. unlawfully after a prior immigration violation.
- You reportedly have a communicable disease.
- You are allegedly known to have a physical or mental disorder or drug addiction.
- You have been convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude (CIMT), or multiple crimes.
- You have a criminal record.
- You entered the United States without proper authorization.
