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.

For me it was an excellent experience having them as lawyers in my case, although my lawyer is a young person, she has extraordinary experience and fabulous self-confidence. Today's people have to understand that there are also young people who have brilliant experience in what they do. My lawyer solved a problem of more than 10 years; in just one year. This tells me how good of a lawyer she is, what else do I need to believe?
I would like to thank Mr. Justin for the spirit of his morals and the nobility of his work. He is a dedicated person in his work and knows what he is doing. I feel reassured because my case is in his trustworthy hands.
Justin and Matthew are nice and professional guys who brought me to the finish line and thank you guys a lot for everything and keep up the good work.
Erin Cobb is the best of the best! She helped me when no one else could or wanted to. And for that I'm so grateful to her!!!
