601 and 601A

Asked over 1 year ago - Alexandria, VA

    Answered . You might not even need a waiver if this was your first time coming to the US, you entered with a visa, and have not left since. I strongly suggest you consult with an Immigration attorney as soon as possible to evaluate your case.

    Even if you do need a waiver, I do not encourage you to do it on your own.

    Answered . 601 waivers are very complicated. Id highly recommend you hire an attorney. I was recently hired to re-do a 601 for a client who tried it on his own, and is now stuck out of the country as a result. Its much more prudent to invest in a lawyer fr the get go and minimize the separation of your family as much as possible.
