I-602 waivers are a legal way for asylum seekers to waive grounds of inadmissibility and receive forgiveness for certain crimes, fraud, or misrepresentation they committed that could prevent them from remaining in the U.S. and qualifying for a green card. However, a strong case must be made by their attorney that the waiver is warranted due to humanitarian reasons, family unity, or national interest. Fortunately I-602 waivers are usually easier to obtain than other waivers such as I-601 waivers (which are the waivers that are required in family and business adjustment cases).
For an I-601 waiver, an immigration lawyer would have to prove:
An I-602 waiver allows asylees who have been found inadmissible to the U.S. due to fraud or misrepresentation at any point during or after their entry into the U.S. or those asylees who have been convicted of felony convictions, including aggravated felonies, to apply for a waiver of inadmissibility on grounds of humanitarian reasons, family unity, or national interest.
Another important reason to apply for a waiver with Nalbandian Law is that we so often see very poorly prepared and poorly documented I-601 and I-602 waiver applications prepared by clients themselves without the help of an expert attorney or that were prepared by incompetent counsel and that have been denied by USCIS.
Nalbandian Law, a leading immigration law firm in the Los Angeles area, has re-filed many I-602 waivers on the grounds that their clients were inadequately represented by their previous attorneys. “Those clients have expressed deep regret for not having come to our firm in the first place to help file their waiver requests. We have enjoyed a 100% success rate throughout our entire 16 years in business with the I-602 waivers and have helped hundreds of asylees who had complex issues obtain their green cards,” said lead immigration attorney, Sassoun A. Nalbandian.
Meticulous detailed documentation is the key to Nalbandian Law’s perfect track record with I-602 waivers. “Most attorneys don’t approach an I-602 case like we do,” Mr. Nalbandian explained, “because they just don’t take the time to prepare the kind of in-depth documentation that impresses immigration judges and convinces them to rule in our client’s favor.”
To build an I-602 case, Mr. Nalbandian and his legal team establish family unity and humanitarian reasons by submitting detailed affidavits from their client and family members. These personal stories help to paint a clear picture of the client’s circumstances. By thinking creatively and in-depth about the facts of your case, we often come up with very important arguments about why your waiver should be granted that other attorneys may have missed in their analysis of your case.
“No detail is left to chance,” Mr. Nalbandian emphasized. “To support the affidavits and make our case even stronger, we often submit medical documentation and comprehensive 15-25 page psychological evaluations prepared by renowned professional psychologists. We know from our many years of winning cases that our detailed documentation is exactly what officers and judges look for in order to be able to approve a waiver request.”
