Chicago-area Waivers Immigration Attorneys

There are certain situations that can cause foreign nationals to be deemed inadmissible and prevent them from entering the U.S. legally or obtaining permanent residence.  While these situations do complicate immigration matters, they do not necessarily close the door completely.  It is possible to obtain a waiver (or pardon) from the government that will allow you to apply for a visa and/or a green card. At Ana M. Mencini & Associates, P.C. we are experienced in helping clients secure the waivers they need to proceed with the immigration process.

When You Need a Waiver

Individuals can be barred from obtaining a visa or adjustment of status for many reasons. The most common include:
    •    Prior deportation from the U.S.
    •    Overstaying a past visa in the U.S.
    •    Criminal charges and/or convictions

Different waivers are needed for each type of offense. Our firm is experienced in helping clients obtain all types of waivers. We understand the high stakes involved in immigration cases, and we work hard to ensure that our clients benefit from every possible opportunity to achieve their immigration goals.
Hardship waivers require proving that the absence of the petitioner will cause significant hardship for a qualifying U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident family member. For many waivers, this is a key component in the case.

At Ana M. Mencini & Associates, P.C. we are skilled in making cases for hardship waivers.  We do not give up on our clients’ Immigration aspirations until all avenues are exhausted.  If you or a loved one has been barred from obtaining a visa or adjustment of status, contact us today to discuss the case. We can help you start the waiver process immediately.
