Nonimmigrant Waiver ApprovedPublished: Nov 30, 2011 10:25 am
Our client is a Canadian citizen. Unfortunately, as a teenager he was bullied by a group of other young men, and when he fought back, was charged and convicted on separate occasions of Assault Causing Bodily Harm, Uttering Threats, Aggravated Assault, and Assault with a Weapon.
Since that troubled time in his life, he has rehabilitated himself. He is married, and is now a young professional. However, because of his convictions, he is inadmissible to the United States for life for having been convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude.
He retained our office because he wished to enter the United States for business and pleasure purposes. Our office prepared and submitted an Application for a Nonimmigrant Waiver of Inadmissibility, supported by a legal brief and documentation explaining the circumstances of the convictions, and showing his complete rehabilitation.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection recently approved his application, and granted a waiver for multiple entries for business and pleasure.
