Do I need to file I-212?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I am trying to file a waiver application (I-601) for my wife in China. I am a US citizen try to bring her and my baby girl here.

My wife was found inadmissible because of section 212(a)(6)© - misrepresentation (she lied in her application) when she try to apply for a B1/B2 visitor visa in 2010.

we apply for immigration visa in 2012 for her after we got marry. we Immigration inadmissible because of section 212(a)(6)© again, she didn't lie this time. it was all truthful. I assuming because of the B1/B2 she file for 2010.

I know I need to file I-601, but I am not sure if I need to file I-212. because she had never being in the US before. and the I-212 is for people who got remove or deport from the US. but like I said, she had never set food in the US before.

but along with the denial letter stating that she was inadmissible because of section 212(a)(6)©, we also got a "Notice of Waiver Application Procedure" saying we need to file for I-212.

I am not sure whether we missed something or immigration make a mistake.

could you guys shed some light on my situation?

I212 is for previous deportation. Get an atty and send in a good I601 waiver package. The waiver must prove hardship on you. Not her. Read all the waiver guides on vj and also check out immigrate2us.com. they have tons of waiver info too
