I-601 Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility not I-601A

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been reading a lot of forums about the waiver I-601 but I cant tell if it's the standard or the I-601A. What I have notice is that the I-601A takes less time to get answer and the standard is taking longer for a respond. Why is it that the I-601A gets a respond in less than 6months and the standard less then 10months.?

Because the I-601A covers a single basis of inadmissibility (illegal presence only), and only for people already within the US.

hi

it depends, the i601A is if the beneficiary is in the country, and it's done before the interview

for the i601 the beneficiary leaves, has his or her interview, is denied and received the answer to if he or she is qualified to file the waiver after the interview

so what is the situation?

My husband had his interview on Dec 22 but was denied for a crime involving moral turpitude but he qualify for the I-601 standard waiver the officer that interview him told him it takes 4-6 months for a respond but we are going on 8 months our receipt date is Feb 25 2016. Our lawyer has send an inquiry and they told him that they are still processing the case and they are behind 2 months. So I'm hoping that this will be our month for an answer I want him home before our sons first birthday it's sad that he only saw him for 3 days after he was born and is our first!

If you don't mind me asking, what crime did he commit? My husband has something on his record but I don't know if it would qualify as moral turpitude.
