my husband came to this country in 1981, without inspection..in 2005 he applied for temporary resident status (I687) under LULAC OLD AMNESTY..was denied due to lock of evidence. They grant him a temporary work authorization card and social security. his work authorization card expired..BUT up to this date he use his ss number to file income tax every year..Now im going to file i130 for him, what would happen in his case ?do we still BE REQUIERED to file 601A ?He never had any problem with imigration and pay his taxes..
I agree with both of my colleagues. You need an immigration attorney to review and advise you. We can give you general advice only and you need to map out a strategy for your spouse. 1) yes, a 601 waiver is likely needed. 2) It appears the provisional waiver process applies to him. The provisional waiver process will be stateside processing of the 601 after your I-130 approval and start of the immigrant visa process. However, seek out an attorney to help you as the strategy is critical to your future. Keep paying taxes. If we do get immigration reform it is likely to include a provision for requiring taxes to be paid and up to date.
The first step is to schedule a consultation with an immigration attorney. Under current laws he probably would require a 601A waiver but it is impossible to know without more information. My firm handles immigration matters in NY.
