One of the hardest issues to consider when someone has accrued unlawful presence is the possibility of being separated from his or her U.S. citizen family while the applicant applies for an immigrant visa and extreme hardship waiver outside of the U.S. In the past this time frame of separation could be as long as one year. The CIS is now permitting certain relatives of U.S. citizens who need an unlawful presence (extreme hardship) waiver the ability to file the application in the U.S., receive a preliminary decision and hopefully reduce the time of separation. If you would like to find out more about this new process, please contact an attorney at Philip Levin & Associates.
