Waivers: Unlawful Presence, Criminal Acts, Deportation and Removal

Whether by overstaying a visa or entering the United States illegally, unlawful presence may complicate someone’s immigration options. Apart from the risk of deportation, an immigrant in unlawful presence may face a 3 year bar, 10 year bar, or permanent bar from returning to the United States. Meaning, if deported, an immigrant who has unlawful presence will be prohibited from returning to the United States.

Similarly, criminal acts may prevent an adjustment of status, if the immigrant is in the United States, or prohibit consular processing where the immigrant is abroad.
