March 19, 2024, Approval of the form I-601A stateside unlawful presence waiver

Celebrating a Milestone: Approval of Form I-601A, Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver, for Our Client

At Barrera Legal Group, we are thrilled to share a recent success story that highlights our commitment to helping families navigate the complex landscape of immigration law. Our client's journey through the approval process of the Form I-601A, Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver, is a testament to the dedication and expertise of our legal team.

Understanding the I-601A Waiver

The Form I-601A allows individuals who are unlawfully present in the United States to apply for a waiver of the unlawful presence grounds of inadmissibility before they leave the U.S. for their immigrant visa interview abroad. This process is crucial for many families, as it significantly reduces the time a spouse, child, or parent is separated from their loved ones during the waiver process.

The Challenge of Demonstrating Extreme Hardship

One of the most challenging aspects of the I-601A application is demonstrating that denial of the waiver would result in extreme hardship to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse or parent. This requires a deep understanding of the law, meticulous preparation of evidence, and a compelling presentation of the case to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Our Approach

In the case of our client, the Barrera Legal Group took a comprehensive approach to demonstrate the extreme hardship their wife would face if the waiver were not granted. Our team meticulously gathered and presented evidence, including financial documents, medical records, and personal statements, to build a compelling case for our client.

The Outcome

We are pleased to announce that our efforts were successful. On March 19, 2024, USCIS approved our client's Application for Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver, Form I-601A. This approval is a significant milestone in our client's journey toward lawful permanent residency in the United States and reunification with their family.

What This Means for Our Client

The approval of the I-601A waiver means that our client can now proceed with confidence to the next step of the immigrant visa process. It also means that the time they will be separated from their family during this process will be significantly reduced.

Our Commitment

At Barrera Legal Group, we understand the impact of immigration issues on families. This success story is just one example of our commitment to providing our clients with the highest quality legal representation. We are proud to have made a difference in the lives of our client and their family, and we remain dedicated to helping others achieve their immigration goals.
