Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver Attorney in Fort Myers
A Helpful Tool for Family-Based Green Card Seekers
Individuals who are seeking a green card but cannot adjust their status can apply for a provisional unlawful presence waiver to avoid being removed from the U.S. as they continue working toward lawful permanent residency. This application should be reviewed and decided before you leave the U.S. for a consular interview.
This provisional waiver is a useful tool for individuals who are illegally present in the U.S. but are eligible for a family-based green card. The waiver can prevent you from being stopped at the border as you travel abroad for your visa interview.

The Reward Outweighs the Risk
Many hopeful green card holders are hesitant to seek a provisional unlawful presence waiver because they are afraid to admit their unlawful status to USCIS. In most cases, the reward of applying for this waiver – obtaining a green card – outweighs the risk of informing USCIS of your name and location. As long as you do not have a criminal history or are deemed a threat to national security, it is unlikely that USCIS will share your information with ICE.
Most individuals with multiple grounds of inadmissibility are advised not to seek a provisional unlawful presence waiver. This waiver might also not be right for you if you cannot prove that your immediate relative(s) would face extreme hardship in your absence.
Hurtado Immigration Law Firm can assess your situation and advise you as to whether the provisional unlawful presence waiver is right for you.
