Provisional Waiver Process

 Home / Provisional Waiver Process

The waiver helps people get permanent residency and does not necessarily involve directly the threat of deportation.

We offer the following services:

  • Waivers (Fraud, Criminal Activity, Medical, Unlawful Presence, Prior Deportations, J-1)
  • Provisional Waiver

For each type of waiver, we can ask the court to let you remain in the United States despite fraud, criminal activity, for medical reasons, or for other reasons.


The provisional waiver process is a new process for the illegal immigrant spouses of U.S. citizens who wish to become legal permanent residents. If they have been without valid immigration status for more than 180 days, this can be an issue. Filing a waiver that demonstrates hardship on the U.S. citizen if they were to leave them and return to their home county is one way to overcome this.

The new provisional waiver program allows a foreign national to file the waiver and remain in the U.S. This is available only to the spouses of U.S. citizens who have an approved I-130, paid all visa fees, and have started the filing of an I-601A. The goal of the provisional waiver program is to minimize the amount of time families are separated during the immigration process. If the waiver is approved, the foreign national will receive an appointment to be interviewed for an immediate visa to return to the U.S.
