In order to live and obtain residence in the United States, you must be found to be “admissible.” Even if you have a valid visa, you may be denied if immigration officers believe you are inadmissible for any of the reasons set out in federal immigration law. Some examples of reasons for inadmissibility include:
At the Chicago immigration law office of Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC, we understand how devastating a finding of inadmissibility can be for you. Fortunately, there are many situations in which we can help you apply for and obtain a waiver of inadmissibility so that you may enter or remain in the U.S.
Your first step should be to determine whether you are eligible for a waiver. The eligibility requirements vary depending on the particular grounds for inadmissibility in your case. For example, a number of different waivers of inadmissibility require you to demonstrate the following:
Many of the circumstances you need to demonstrate have a subjective analysis. For instance, whether you “deserve” a waiver or whether “extreme hardship” exists is generally examined on a case-by-case basis, each case being unique. There is no hard and fast rule that determines whether an applicant meets the criteria or not. For this reason, it is imperative to have an immigration attorney helping you who understands what the officials at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) are looking for. A qualified immigration lawyer will evaluate your situation, identify what you need to show to qualify for a waiver, assist you with the application form, and argue to USCIS that you meet the standard for the waiver and merit approval.
The process of obtaining a waiver of inadmissibility can be complicated, and it is imperative that you present your story in the best light possible for your best chance at obtaining a waiver. The experienced immigration attorneys at the firm of Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC understand this process and know the approach that has the best possible chance of resulting in a granted waiver.

One of my relatives just received her Green Card and the credit goes to Kevin Raica and his Paralegal, Aga Bogdanowicz. The final “Adjust Status Petition” including the supporting documentation was 128 pages long! There is no way we could have compiled this level of detail much less have it be error free on our own. The whole process took around 8 months which is to be expected; however, the Petition package was so complete that no interview was required. If you ever have need of immigration legal service you just can’t go wrong with Kevin Raica and the immigration…
