Dallas Waivers of Inadmissibility Attorney

Dallas, TX Lawyers Helping Inadmissable Citizens

Lawyer in Dallas County Helping Ineligible and Inadmissible Foreign Citizens

There are situations where a foreign national, even someone who is already present in the United States, can be deemed ineligible for legal entry into the U.S. These cases often involve violations of eligibility requirements or immigration laws. Immigrants who are inadmissible may be unable to maintain a legal status in the United States, and they may encounter obstacles when applying for Green Cards or citizenship. However, it is important to remember that inadmissibility is an issue that can often be overcome, and waivers of inadmissibility may be available in certain situations.

At the Law Office of Jae Lee, we understand how overwhelming matters involving immigration law can seem. Our team can provide reliable advice and support in this highly complex area. With a personal experience as an immigrant himself, Attorney Jae Lee fully understands the issues that can arise during the process of applying for waivers or addressing other immigration-related concerns. We can provide experienced, dedicated representation for those who are dealing with inadmissibility or other related matters, and we can help families navigate the immigration process successfully.

When Is a Person Inadmissible?

The United States government has put a number of requirements in place for immigrants who wish to enter or remain in the country. Immigrants who do not meet these requirements, including people located inside or outside the United States, may be classified as inadmissible. Inadmissibility may be determined upon consideration of a variety of circumstances and characteristics, such as an immigrant's criminal record, violations of immigration laws, or health issues related to vaccinations, infectious diseases, or mental illness. While there are numerous potential reasons that could cause a person to be deemed inadmissible, some of the most common factors include:

  • A diagnosis of conditions that may put others at risk, including mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or sociopathy.
  • At least two previous convictions on criminal charges that resulted in a total sentence of five years or more in prison.
  • Intentionally providing information to immigration officials that was known to be false, including forms or supporting documents provided when applying for an immigrant visa or adjustment of status.
  • Previous deportations from the United States.
  • Unauthorized entry to the United States.
  • Remaining in the United States after the expiration of a temporary visa.

North Texas Attorney Assisting With the Waiver Process

If you or a loved one have been deemed inadmissible, our legal team can assess whether you may qualify for a waiver of inadmissibility. Your ability to receive a waiver may depend on the reasons for inadmissibility, your family's circumstances, and characteristics that may make you eligible for relief. In many cases, waiver requests are based on the claim that a person's inability to enter or remain in the United States would cause extreme hardship for close family members with a valid immigration status, including U.S. citizens or Green Card holders.

We will conduct an in-depth review of your case and identify the potential options that may allow you to overcome inadmissibility. If you qualify for a waiver, we can assist you in filing the proper forms and providing any supporting documentation that may be required. In some cases, it may be possible to file an application for a visa or Adjustment of Status at the same time as a waiver application, while in others, a waiver may be requested during deportation proceedings.

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) review applications for waivers of inadmissibility, and immigration officials will examine the circumstances of a case to determine whether granting a waiver will be in the best interests of an immigrant's family members. Although there is no guarantee that a waiver will be approved, we will assist you in making a compelling case for why you should be allowed to live in the United States. This could include demonstrating that the denial of your waiver would lead to serious personal or financial problems for loved ones such as your spouse, children, or parents. We can also help determine whether you may qualify for protection against deportation based on asylum or refugee status or because you have been the victim of domestic abuse or other crimes.
