Certain immediate relatives of U.S. citizens (spouses, parents of adult U.S. citizens and minor children) may take advantage of the immigration system that will permit them to remain close to their families in the U.S. by seeking a a provisional waiver of inadmissibility before departing the United States.
Even though the provisional waiver is narrow in its focus, it is a valuable step in the green card process for those who qualify. This new immigration rule is extremely beneficial for immigrants seeking legal residence in the United States and for their family members.
As of now, these family members cannot apply for green cards within the U.S. because they have unlawfully stayed in this country. By utilizing the waiver of inadmissibility, the ability for those seeking lawful presence becomes a reality. Hopefully, this is a sign of future immigration improvements.
