Accused Of A Crime, Fraud, Or Excessive Unlawful Presence In The United States?
HOW FORM I-601 COULD HELP
If you’ve been accused of a crime, fraud, or you’re faced with any kind of risk for deportation, a United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Form I-601A could help you remain in America.
To help you understand how this form works and how it can protect your future, we answer three important questions below.
1. WHAT IS A FORM I-601?
Known as the Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility, this application is for immigrants who would like to apply for the waiver of inadmissibility and become eligible for a green card. This can be useful for individuals who’ve been deemed “inadmissible” due to a past crime, fraud, or excessive unlawful presence in America.
2. WHAT WILL I NEED TO SUPPLY ALONG WITH THE APPLICATION?
For your Form I-601 to be considered, you will need to supply the following:
Signature: This must be a handwritten signature. Stamped or typewritten signatures are not acceptable.
Filing fee: You must pay the fee of $585 to submit the application.
Biometrics services fee: You do not have to pay this fee if you are filing with USCIS. However, if you are later asked to submit biometrics, you’ll receive an appointment notification, which will include instructions on how to submit the additional biometrics services fee.
Evidence: When you file the application, you must submit all evidence and documents. The evidence and documents required can be foundhere.
Biometric services appointments: Before a final decision is made, you may be asked to attend an interview or to provide or give consent for the agency to obtain / perform the following:
- Additional information
- Background check
- Security check
- Criminal history records
· Acknowledgment of appointment at the USCIS Application Support Center: This entails verifying your information and acknowledging you’ve completed the application, reviewed your responses, and affirmed all information you have supplied is complete and accurate.
3. CAN I HIRE AN ATTORNEY TO HELP ME WITH THIS PROCESS?
These documents and processes can be extremely confusing and frustrating. In addition, lack of or inaccurate information can leave you permanently inadmissible and ineligible to obtain any kind of U.S. citizenship. This is why it is wise to hire an experienced immigration attorney.
