I know that with the I-601 you have to leave the country then apply, does the the I-601A enable you to waiting in the United States while it's being consider for approval?
Yes, you can stay in the U.S. while it is pending, but it is very difficult to satisfy the hardship requirement in this waiver and the current trend shows a number of denials. That makes it extremely important to work with an experienced immigration attorney so that the strongest possible filing is made. You will still have to leave the country to obtain your visa at the consulate, but the time spent abroad is considerably shorter than what you would have spent otherwise.
