Hello, I am James. I will be helping you today. I do not get a salary here. But just like you, I want to get credit for doing my job. You are the only person who can help me get credit before leaving this site today. So please do not forget to do that by giving me a positive rating with 3 or more stars or any of the smiling faces.
Also, if you want me to be your personal immigration Expert, just write “FOR JAMES" at the beginning of any future, new questions, and I will be happy to help you as your personal Expert.
ANSWER: I do not see a question here, so I ca only assume you want confirmation of whether what the attorney told you is true and that the cost seems fair. So forgive me if I missed something important. And if I did, please reply and ask the question you want answered.
First, the attorney is absolutely right that your husband is subject to a 10 year ban for being in the US unlawfully for more than 1 year. The only way he can overcome that ban is to apply for a Waiver of Inadmissibility (form I-601). If approved, he will be able to apply for an immigrant visa that would allow him to come to the US to live and work permanently. And as you already know, to be eligible, he must be able to show that you (or your child) will suffer extreme hardship if he is not allowed to immigrate before the 10 years are over, or that you will suffer extreme hardship if you have to go to Mexico to be with him.
As far as the fees, $6,500 sounds very reasonable for the effort and work it takes to apply for theI-601 waiver.
I know these issues can be confusing. If you want to talk on the phone for a fee, I can send you an offer for that.
I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service with a positive rating so I get credit for doing my job. This is very important. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can keep asking questions even after you have given a rating.
REMINDER: You are not rating the state of the law or the outcome of your situation, which I cannot control. You are rating my customer service. Believe me that I always want to give you good news. But if the outcome is not what you wanted, blame the government and the law, not me. I am only a messenger.
Negative ratings are reserved for Professionals who are rude or unprofessional. Giving me a negative rating does not help you get a different answer or outcome. So do not give a negative rating if you need more help, or if I misunderstood your question. Instead click REPLY so I can continue to assist you.
A BONUS is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it.
If you have questions in the future, write “FOR JAMES" in the question and I will be your personal Expert in this category.
