I-601A: How Psychological and Financial Hardship affect an approval

Monday, October 24, 2016 | Last Updated: October 6, 2016
by admin

We would like to share one of our many I-601A success stories. Our clients, who we will call Patrick and Adriana to protect their privacy, came to our office for a consultation earlier this year. We assessed their case and decided that they would be excellent candidates to apply for an I-601A waiver. We filed for their I-601A Waiver petition in February 2016 and we received their approval on August 2016.

Adriana, a Mexican citizen, came to the United states in 2004. She entered without inspection in search of a better life for her and her children. She met her U.S. citizen husband Patrick in 2005 and they married in 2006.

Patrick had recently suffered though the loss of his first wife due to Leukemia in 2003. During the year that his first wife spent at the hospital before passing away, Patrick was by her side. While he watched his first wife’s health rapidly deteriorate he developed thanatophonia—an abnormal fear of death, where he began to experience severe anxiety and debilitating panic attacks. The loss of his first wife permanently altered his mental and psychological state.

After the passing of his wife, Patrick was a single father to his five children and also held a full time job causing his anxiety and panic attacks to become more frequent. When he met Adriana in 2005, she was like an answer to his prayers. Her kindness and generosity helped him get through his panic attacks and deal with his loss related psychological issues. Upon their marriage, Adriana took Patrick’s five children as her own. She gave up her job to take care of the children full time, allowing Patrick to focus on his job to support their large family. Adriana brought a balance to Patrick’s life—a financial and emotional balance.

Our first step after taking on this case was to establish and prove that if Adriana’s I-601a waiver were denied, Patrick (as the U.S. citizen spouse) would suffer extreme hardship. We immediately set out to gather and collect evidence to support our case.

We worked closely with Adriana and Patrick to collect medical records to establish that Patrick would suffer emotionally and psychologically if Adriana were not allowed to remain with him in the United States. We also collected and analyzed substantial financial documentation to prove the financial hardship to Patrick in the event that Adriana were forced to return to Mexico—this included evidence to prove the financial hardship Patrick would suffer if he were forced to either quit his job to take care of his five children or be forced to have to pay for the full time child care for all five children.

While this case had particularly good facts to support it and we were confident from the beginning that we would obtain a waiver, here at the Ranchod Law Group we also take on more challenging cases. We work closely with our clients to identify all potential hardships and present that best case possible.

Schedule a consultation with us, we’ll analyze your case and walk you through the process to success. Call now (916) 613-3553

I want to thank the Ranchod Law Group and particularly my attorney Yesenia Rosas for her excellent work in my U Visa case. She was persistent when the police department denied my U Visa certification multiple times and she never gave up until we successfully received the signed certification. I am very satisfied with her constant support and encouragement. She is kind and always treated me with the upmost respect. She quickly answered my questions and eased my concerns. I am also very satisfied with the Ranchod Law Group staff. They were always kind and respectful.

Yo quiero darle las gracias al Ranchod Law Group y en particular a mi abogada Yesenia Rosas por su excelente trabajo en mi caso de la Visa U. Ella fue persistente cuando el departamento de policía negó mi certificación para la visa U varias veces y nunca se dio por vencer hasta que recibimos la certificación firmada. Estoy muy satisfecho con su apoyo y ayuda. Ella es una persona amable y siempre me trato con respeto. En todo momento me resolvía mis preguntas y dudas que yo tenía.

I-601A Hardship Waiver Available to Spouses and Children of Lawful Permanent Residents

Monday, October 24, 2016 | Last Updated: August 11, 2016
by admin

BREAKING NEWS: On July 29, 2016, USCIS announced a final rule extending the I-601A Provisional Waiver to include spouses and children of lawful permanent residents.

This expansion will go into effect August 29, 2016

Until now, children and spouses of lawful permanent residents seeking to obtain a waiver of inadmissibility due to an unlawful entry and presence were required to exit the country while they awaited an approval of their waiver—which could take anywhere from six to twelve months. They were forced to leave their family, work and lives behind hoping they would be able to return when and if their waiver was granted. If the waiver was denied, they were faced with a three or ten-year bar to admission depending on the length of time they were unlawfully present in the United States prior to exiting.

The expansion will now allow the spouses and children of lawful permanent residents to file for their waiver inside the United States and await a decision here rather than having to exit the country. To qualify for an I-601A waiver, applicants must establish that their lawful permanent resident spouse or parent would suffer extreme hardship if the applicants are not allowed to return to the United States. The expansion does not change the requirement that the applicant exit the country for their interview once the waiver is granted—however the exit is significantly reduced from what would have taken several months of uncertainty to usually only a week or two with an already approved waiver.

If you think you qualify for an I-601A waiver it is important you contact an experienced immigration attorney who can evaluate the specifics of your case to make sure you qualify. There are multiple factors that can affect your case and cause a denial, such as multiple unlawful entries and a criminal record.

Furthermore, preparing and collecting evidence to prove extreme hardship is a daunting task that requires guidance and experience. If you would like to see if you qualify and want to have the merits of your case evaluated, please give the Ranchod Law Group a call to schedule a consultation.
