Provisional Waiver Program
Are you or someone you love trying to join the I-601A provisional waiver program? Our New Jersey immigration attorney Susan Scheer explains what you need to know before coming to see her to file for the waiver.
Provisional Waiver Program | I-601A
Lately, the I-601A Provisional Waiver Program has become very popular and we’ve been helping many clients achieve success through this program. One of the typical questions that I’m asked is if the waiver is approved, how long would my spouse, typically a husband, have to remain outside of the US. Very good question, especially if your spouse is a primary bread winner. We all know that in this type of case, first we need the I-130 Immigrant Visa Petition approved. That typically takes six months to one year. Next, we apply for the I-601 Waiver that also takes six months to one year.
Provisional Waiver Program | Immigration Appointment
Then we get to the moment of truth. The immigration appointment is scheduled at the US embassy abroad and the husband or wife has to leave the US. The good news is that typically people only leave the US for a period of two to four weeks. Everyone is telling me that the immigrant visa appointment is much smoother than they expected, not very stressful at all, because most of the legal work was done before they left the US. They stay two to four weeks to resolve their immigration issue, visit family, have a good time and return to the US. Their green card comes in the mail; it’s a very happy story.
If I can help you with this type of immigration issue or any other problem that you have, please get in touch with my Morristown office and we would be happy to talk to you and hopefully resolve your problems.
