Immigration Waivers – I-601 Waivers
A waiver is, in effect, forgiveness for either a ground of inadmissibility or deportability. There are situations where a person who is seeking admission into the United States is not allowed to do so unless a waiver is granted. For example, a person may have committed visa fraud, helped aliens to enter the US without inspection, have been in the United States unlawfully for a period of time, or have committed criminal offenses. Or, a person may already be in the United States, but should have been found to be inadmissible. In other words, they were wrongfully admitted to the United States and can be put into removal proceedings. A waiver would be filed using Form I-601 Waiver with a supporting brief and other documentation in an attempt to excuse the immigration problem. Some grounds of inadmissibility cannot be waived, and they will not be allowed to immigrate with a visa through a family petition.
Marriage and Adjustment of Status While in Immigration Court Proceedings
Respondents facing removal in immigration court may be able to adjust status based on marriage to a U.S. citizen. Adjustment of status is a procedure that permits an admissible foreign national to obtain lawful permanent residence (i.e., a green card) without leaving the United States.
Cancellation of Removal for Lawful Permanent Residents
Although you may be a lawful permanent resident, that is, you have been issued a “green card”, you may still be subject to deportation for commission of certain crimes. However, through cancellation of removal for lawful permanent residents, you may be permitted to remain in the United States if a waiver is granted by an Immigration Judge.
Cancellation of Removal
If an individual does not have a green card, and either overstayed an I-94 period of authorized admission or entered illegally and cannot adjust status in the US, there is still an opportunity through cancellation of removal to stay in the US and obtain the status of a lawful permanent resident and obtain a green card..Read More

What is Asylum? Asylum is a form of protection that allows individuals who are in the United States to remain here, provided that they meet the definition of a refugee and are not barred from either applying for or being granted asylum, and eventually to adjust their status to lawful permanent resident.
