The 10 year bar is a common problem in immigration law that is cured by I-601 Waiver of 10 Year Bar and Other Offenses. This occurs when an immigrant overstays their time allowed in the United States by one year, or “accrues more than 365 days of unlawful presence” in legal terms. It is triggered when you actually leave the United States, so technically you are not subject to the 10 year bar if you have not yet left the U.S.! This law is extremely complicated and you need an immigration lawyer to help you decide if you need a waiver, and if you can get a waiver.
A waiver is like a pardon: The immigration service will admit you to the U.S. before the 10 years are up if you can show that a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident “qualifying relative” (Spouse or Parent) will suffer an extreme hardship if you are not allowed back in to the United States. This requires a great deal of proof of mental/emotional and financial hardship, family separation issues, loss of educational opportunities and problems should the qualifying relative move to the immigrant’s home country.
This waiver is filed on form I-601 and is also used for document fraud, misrepresentations, crimes of moral turpitude. marijuana offenses, prostitution, and other problems. We usually take a month to prepare the waiver and it will be over 500 pages long.
