I-601 Family Unity Hardship Waivers

I-601 FAMILY UNITY WAIVERS

HOW TO OVERCOME INADMISSIBILITY

I-601 Family Unity Hardship Factors

Until recently, hardship was an immigration concept not widely known by immigrants seeking to legalize their status as permanent residents.

The meaning, scope, and substance of hardship has been debated by immigration lawyers, judges, and officers for over 60 years.

But with all the recent stories about new family unity regulations, many immigrant families are now asking questions about how hardship waiver requirements affect their cases.

For instance, a young woman in her mid-20s came to my San Diego immigration law office just yesterday and asked:

What is extreme hardship? What do I need to prove hardship? What type of supporting
evidence do I need to win an I-601 extreme hardship waiver for inadmissibility?

An easy-to-understand I-601 Hardship Factors Wheel, presented below, is a useful starting point to answer such inquiries.

What’s at stake? Nothing less than the hopes and dreams of many U.S. citizens, who would like to live with their immigrant spouses or children.
