How do you know if you’re eligible to apply for a waiver after being deported?
The best way to do that is to consult with an attorney with whatever paperwork from ICE/USCIS you might have and go from there. If you were deported and you are still here, then it will be very tough but not entire impossible under certain conditions.
Someone that was deported can apply for a waiver to renter the U.S. however, more facts are needed to determine eligibility.
You may be eligible to immigrate the United States after a deportation. It will depend upon the reasons you were deported and what basis you have to receive an immigrant visa. You will first need an immigrant visa petition filed on your behalf. Once this petition is approved, it will be forward to the National Visa Center for further processing and then forwarded to the local U.S. Embassy/Consulate for further adjudication. This will include an interview. The U.S. Embassy/Consulate will determine that you need a waiver and you will be given an opportunity to file the forms and supporting documents. The types of forms and evidence you need will depend upon the reason for your deportation. A waiver is not available to everyone and is linked to hardship to a qualifying relative. It is in your best interest to speak in more detail with an attorney about your case.
The answer depends on the reason for your deportation and the means by which you seek to enter. For certain grounds of deportation (drugs, aggravated felonies) there may be no waiver available to you. But for other grounds of deportation, you can seek a waiver of the deportation in conjunction with the immigrant visa application. If all you seek is temporary entry on a work or tourist visa, there is a nonimmigrant visa waiver available for most offenses and grounds of inadmissibility. You should consult with an immigration attorney to get the best advice for your specific needs.
Waivers are complicated and there are many factors including the reason for your deportation, your immigration and criminal history, your qualifying relatives for an immigrant visa. For a nonimmigrant visa waiver you need to first qualify for the visa type and then qualify for a waiver. Best to have your case analyzed by an experienced immigration attorney.
You can always apply for a waiver. Whether you are to be granted a waiver depends how persuasive you are in your application. A lawyer by your side is strongly recommended.
Hard to say without knowing your whole immigration history. There are many different kinds of waivers. The most common are for fraud, unlawful presence, and criminal matters. For the fraud & unlawful presence waivers you have to prove extreme hardship to your US citizen (USC) or permanent resident (LPR) spouse or parent if you are not allowed to return to the U.S. For criminal waivers, you have to prove extreme hardship to USC or LPR spouse, parent or child.
Yes you can. We have to know the facts of the deportation and the family ties available. Sometimes people have Voluntary return and they call it deportation so we have to know exactly what happened.
It depends on when you were deported and why. You should take a copy of your immigration documents and schedule an appointment with a competent immigration attorney who focuses on deportation law. That person can do a full review and let you know your rights and options.
The best way to know is to arrange a comprehensive consultation and legal analysis with competent legal counsel, so that all of your available documentation may be reviewed, together with the facts and circumstances of your removal, to determine available options, if any. Some grounds of removal just can't be waived, and act as, more or less, permanent bars.
