The provisional waiver began in early 2013 in an attempt to decrease family separation and to encourage legalization under the Obama Administration. With fewer options for immigrants who entered without inspection to seek status, the provisional waiver is one of the few remaining avenues to obtain legal permanent residency, and the entire process can last nearly one and a half to two years depending on processing times.
For attorneys considering these cases, it is essential to screen properly, develop a strong strategy, regularly review the eligibility of your clients throughout the process, and prepare for the consular interview. This program is taught by Ruby Powers, a practitioner with over twelve years of successful practice in waivers and consular processing, and will benefit law firm owners, partners, managers, and managing attorneys.
