Do You Have a Criminal Conviction that Affects your Green Card/Visa Application?
If you have been convicted of a crime that makes you inadmissible in the green card application process, you will require a criminal waiver in order for your green card to be granted. Not all convictions will require a waiver, but many theft crimes, fraud crimes and controlled substance crimes can make you inadmissible when applying to receive green card status in the U.S.
Alexandria, Virginia, Immigration Lawyer, Omiga Cape, of Cape Immigration Law Group, PLLC, welcomes your inquiry if you are at risk of being denied a green card based on a prior criminal conviction.
Criteria for Receiving a Criminal Waiver
A criminal waiver may be granted if:
- Refusal to admit you to the U.S. would result in extreme hardship to your U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse, parent, or child.
- Your admission to the U.S. would not be contrary to the national welfare, safety, or security of the U.S.
- You have been rehabilitated.
