Approval of Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver (Form I-601A) – September 6, 2017

Our client is a native and citizen of the Philippines.  She entered the U.S. with a K-1 Fiancé(e) Visa but was unable to ever be granted her green card based on marriage to her K-1 petitioner. She ultimately met and fell in love with her current U.S. citizen husband, but was ineligible for adjustment of status due to her prior entry with a K-1 Fiancé(e) Visa. Hence, the need for a Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver to avoid having a 10-year bar after she departed the U.S. for her Immigrant Visa interview at the U.S. Embassy in the Philippines.  We are proud to say that our client’s request for her waiver was approved after we were able to show that her husband would suffer ‘extreme hardship’ if our client was not issued her green card.
