Second Nonimmigrant Waiver Renewal ApprovedPublished: Sep 7, 2010 7:00 am
Our client is a Canadian citizen. He is a Marketing Executive for a Canadian company doing business in the United States, which requires his U. S. presence as a business visitor from time to time.
Unfortunately, he is inadmissible to the United States as a result of an old conviction in Canada. Five years ago, through other counsel, the client submitted an Application for a Nonimmigrant Waiver of Inadmissibility, which was denied. At this point we were retained.
We had an Immigration Court proceeding instituted so that an Immigration Judge could determine whether the waiver application should have been granted. We went to trial and the Judge granted the waiver after hearing substantial favorable testimony and evidence which we provided.
Subsequently, we have applied for two renewals of the waiver application directly with U. S. Customs and Border Protection. Both applications have been approved because we obtained an Immigration Court Order granting the waiver and no adverse factors have occurred since that time.
