Immigration Law: Waivers
Immigrants and their families face significant challenges when dealing with immigration laws in San Francisco. Trying to reunite or keep their families together – whether through family based visas, obtaining work permits, or finding competent deportation defense – requires the skills of an experienced San Francisco immigration lawyer.
The Law Offices of Jorge Rodriguez-Choi takes an aggressive approach to defending immigrants’ rights with a concentration in immigration defense services such as:
- Naturalization and citizenship
- Application for citizenship
- Deportation defense
- Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
- Waivers of removal for lawful permanent residents (LPRs)
- Work permits
Eligibility of waivers for lawful permanent residents
Confusing regulations that govern eligibility of waivers for lawful permanent residents (LPRs) prove hard to master for many people. In some cases even lawyers believe qualification for eligibility waivers for those convicted of a crime is impossible. However, an in-depth analysis of certain factors about the conviction often allows us to obtain waivers for our clients such as:
- Date of conviction
- Date of release
- Length of sentence
- Actual time served
- Other factors
Waivers for LPRs are an area of San Francisco immigration law that our firm has tackled with diligence. In certain types of eligibility situations we have achieved a significant measure of success even for clients with criminal convictions.
