Nonimmigrant Waiver Approved for Client with Multiple Convictions in Three Months

Published: Jul 31, 2014

Our client is a Canadian citizen.  He is semi-retired from a successful career in the water treatment industry.  He has eight criminal convictions in Canada for a series of theft and fraud offenses, the last of which occurred 14 years ago.  He also had an in absentia Order of Removal entered against him by the Immigration Judge.  Our client retained us because he wanted to enter the United States was to travel with his wife and visit their friends in the United States, and his convictions prevented him from entering the US to do so.  His previous attorney was unable to obtain waiver.

Once retained we rolled up our sleeves and prepared a compelling nonimmigrant waiver and permission to reapply for admission to the United States after deportation on his behalf, which were granted by the Admissibility Review Office.  Prior to the expiration of his nonimmigrant waiver, our office prepared his renewal application. 

Each waiver application prepared by our office is supplemented with appropriate documentary evidence and a legal brief, specifically tailored to each of our client’s individual circumstances.  Three months after our client filed his renewal application, the ARO approved the renewal waiver for a period of five years, the longest possible period granted by the ARO.  He can now apply for admission to the United States without further delay.  He is able to enter the US to travel with his wife.
