Unlawful Presence Bar Updates: Impact for Certain Green Card Applicants

By: Angelita Chavez | June 24, 2022

Inadmissibility can make it difficult to adjust status to lawful permanent resident in the United States. An exciting new policy interpretation from United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) could change how the agency enforces three- and ten-year bars to inadmissibility.

Don’t miss this live conversation where Partner and Attorney Angelita Chavez explores with host Sasha Preston-Suni how this policy could impact certain green card applicants, including:

  • Who is impacted by the policy change.
  • What happens to recently denied adjustment of status cases.
  • When the clock on unlawful presence runs under prior and new policy.
  • Who qualifies for I-601 waivers.
  • What evidence is accepted for I-601 waivers.
  • When to file for a waiver.
  • Whether a waiver denial can be appealed.
