Nonimmigrant waiver after being found guilty of fraud

Asked over 2 years ago - San Leandro, CA

A US consulate found me to have enclosed a fake letter to support my H1B petition, and denied me the visa. My wife is in America, working on H1B status and our toddler son who is US born is there too. This just happened a few months ago. Do I have any chance to get a waiver if I apply now?
