One of the greatest risks undocumented immigrants face is potential deportation or being barred from re-entry. For some of those people, help may be available in the form of an I-601a waiver, a/k/a a provisional waiver. To be eligible, you must be a relative of a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident. Of course, there’s much more to it than that, and going about seeking a provisional waiver the wrong way can have extreme consequences, which is why, when you’re ready to apply for an I-601a waiver, it is vitally important to obtain the services of a skillful Maryland inadmissibility waiver lawyer.
