Miller|Conway, Charleston Immigration Lawyers, are pleased to report that due to a new USCIS policy effective March 4, 2013, certain immigrant visa applicants who are immediate relatives of a U.S. citizen can apply for provisional unlawful presence waivers before they leave the United States.
Prior to March 4, 2013, the law required that any individual who had accrued in excess of 180 days of unlawful presence must first travel abroad for an immigrant visa interview and be deemed inadmissible to the U.S. by a Department of State officer before they would be eligible to apply for a waiver of inadmissibility. Because this new policy allows such individuals to apply ahead of time, it will minimize the time family members are forced to be apart throughout the application process.
