We recently received an approval for a 601A Provisional Waiver for a Guatemalan national. Our client had previously applied with a different attorney and his case had been denied. We reviewed his file and saw additional ways to evidence his eligibility. We applied again with significantly more evidence and the case was approved!

A 601A waiver is an immigration process for people in the United States who need to apply at a Consulate abroad for permanent residency instead of adjusting their status in the U.S. For example, someone in the United States who entered by crossing the border who then marries a U.S. citizen must go abroad to get their green card (as opposed to someone who enters with a visa who can then adjust their status here in the U.S.). You apply for this waiver in the United States before you go to the visa interview, which in turn enables you to be out of the country (and separated from your family) for just your visa interview rather than for many months or longer, which would be the case if you had applied for the 601 waiver abroad.

The 601A waiver is not for everyone and it is important that an attorney carefully review your immigration history to make sure that you qualify for it and won't have problems when you go abroad to apply for permanent residency.
