Help for Waivers 212 and 601

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello friends my husband was denied at his interview for his visa because he overstayed over a year. I would like to know if anyone knows which waiver does he file for this section 212(a)(9)(B)(I)(II) and 212(a)(9)(A)(ii) and in the end it says you are eligible to apply for a waiver of the grounds of ineligibility Is it 601 and 212 or 601A and 212. Your help is appreciated.

I had to file these exact same waivers a few months back I-601 for misrepresentation and I-212 permission to reenter after deportation at 585 each.

3-Year and 10-Year Bar

INA section 212(a)(9)(B)(i)(II) makes inadmissible any alien who “has been unlawfully present in the United States for one year or more, and who again seeks admission within 10 years of the date of such alien’s removal or departure.”

212(a)(9)(A)(ii) http://www.inadmissibility.com/info/212a9Aii.html

I did both myself and got approved in 4 months, but i'd recommend a lawyer. Good luck!

Yep a waiver package can be quite complicated especially if English is not your first language.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

I used a lawyer for our waivers. This part is too important to not get it right. There were a lot of details to organize and putting together the packet was a lot of work. The lawyer organized all of our letters and info and prepared a legal brief to introduce the evidence. After reviewing what was sent out by the lawyer, I feel good about our chances. Ours was sent a few weeks ago but currently they are 6 months backlogged at the Nebraska Service Center according to the USCIS website.
