    Answered . Whether she will be eligible for a fraud waiver based on your petition, or for some other sort of visa depends on too many factors to accurately diagnose here. She should make an appointment with an attorney to discuss the details of her entry, her marriage, her past application, and other relevant personal history.

    Answered . Consult with an attorney. Waivers (for that matter, most immigration issues) cannot be resolved in a forum. An attorney will be able to best advise you after learning more information from you and about your mother
