What was the waiver that you applied for? Why did you apply for the waiver? What else were you applying for?

hi i aply for a waiver of ground of inadmissibility form i_601 when the biometrics results sshow that they got me triyng to get in usa was 2003wich i did not remember and on my aplication i have that i enter in 2002 wich was a guesing now

You entered the U.S. illegally? Why do you need the waiver?

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

yes i enter illegally

Are you applying for the I-601A or the I-601? And what is the exact reason they are denying your waiver? Because I doubt it has anything to do whether you came into the U.S. in 2002 or 2003? Please hurry because it is 4:30am for me and I only signed on for a few minutes.

I wouldn't try the I-601A waiver anyway. Why? Because right now there are millions of undocumented persons in the U.S. that are married to U.S. Citizens and even have U.S. Citizen children but they do not leave because they are afraid to be stuck outside for 10 years. What has changed is that before, a person had to leave the U.S. and spend around 15 months or so while waiting for their appointment at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in their home country and then HOPE that they got approved, but the change is that now they say that the same person can apply inside the U.S., supposedly get a pre-approval, but they still have to leave the U.S. and present themselves to the U.S. Embassy or Consulate. So why do I think it may be a trap? Because it could very easily be a way to just get those many millions of people to finally leave the U.S. and once they are outside, they can still be denied the waiver even though they have a "pre-approval". I just don't trust that. So I would just wait for immigration reform to come out. I know that may not happen for awhile, but it is the safer thing to do.


If you still want to go forward with it, if they have denied it, you will need to file an I-290B and ask them to reconsider or appeal the decision and show evidence that you did you leave the U.S. Here is an official link to the things that you can use to prove physical presence in the U.S.:

hi i have no prove or how to prove when i get here for the first time ....so the website you told me about does not help my case. however i have ptove that in 2002 i was in mexico still can i use it as evidence? if aply againg for the waiver?? . can my lawyer appeal to redice the time that i have to be out of contry before i can return tu usa???

You are supposed to prove that during the time that they say that you were outside you were actually inside of the U.S. But no, the penalty is 10 years if you leave. That cannot be reduced. It is either 10 years or you get the waiver. There is no reduction. It is 10 years or zero if the waiver is approved. Please let me know if you have additional questions and please do not forget to rate my service to you positively (not the state of the law) as that is the only way that I can get credit for my assistance. Even after you rate the service, I can still answer additional questions for you without additional charge. And don't forget that bonuses are always appreciated! Thank you.
