There are many different types of waivers for which immigrants may wish to apply. One of the most common is the provisional waiver of unlawful presence. These waivers are sought by those who are in the United States illegally and are married to or children of lawful permanent residents. Individuals who have a qualifying relative can apply for a green card and not have to serve the waiting period. Individuals who can show extreme hardship can also apply for a provisional waiver. While this is just one type of waiver available, a Warsaw, IN immigration lawyer can explain an immigrant’s other options.
In 2017, it was announced that the DACA program is coming to an end. Those preparing applications will no longer be accepted under this program.

Those who are refugees or entered the country as a beneficiary of a special program can also apply to adjust their status.
Workers outside of the United States can enter the country based on employment purposes.
