601 Waiver after AOS Interview

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone else out there filing a I-601 waiver after attending their AOS interview?

We submitted our packet last week. According to the USPS tracking number, it was received on March 20th. The deadline to submit the waiver was yesterday (March 25th). However, they have yet to cash the money order. I'm feeling pretty anxious about the situation. I'm hoping they count my NOA date as the date it was received, not the date they cashed the money order. I guess I won't know until that NOA1 comes in the mail...

Best of luck, guys!


Wishing all of your luck on your immigration journeys.

NOA date is the date they use. The date they cash the check means nothing

Hello,

It's a complicated story line, but I'll try. :) He entered the U.S. on B1/B2 visa in December of 2001. Following advice from his mom, he filed for benefits under Temporary Protected Status. He was 19 and spoke very little English. And most damning of all, he trusted his mom. He was granted TPS and the affiliated EAD. However, when we started to the AOS process, we realized that he never qualified for TPS. His TPS/EAD application actually stated that he was an EWI from November of 2000. My husband was completely clueless. He was always under the impression that he qualified for TPS, so he never paid close attention to the details of the initial application or renewals. We were left with two options: continuing the lie of TPS or taking our chances with the AOS/waiver. We clearly opted for the latter.

At the interview, we were very transparent with our IO. She told us that she didn't think it would be a problem. She said she hoped to approve us either that day or the next business day. We even talked about bringing his passport back to the office for the stamp! But we got an e-mail later in the day from our lawyer. The IO's supervisor had requested a waiver for misrepresentation.
