Thank you for your question.Your husband may apply for an Application for Waiver of Grounds of Excludability on your behalf (I-601)In order to prevail, extreme hardship to your husband as a United States citizen will need to be shown. Approval also requires a favorable exercise of discretion from the Attorney General. This requires a weighing of all factors, the favorable against the unfavorable, in each case.I suggest that you retain local Immigration counsel to assist you in this application.

I have sought an attourney. Like i said, she doesn't think they will grant me cos i have been married before and didn't finish the process before i got divorced. Also, you didn't answer my question about asking for more time so i can have my baby to continue going to court. Is this possible?
