Conditional Waivers of Inadmissibility for U.S. Visas | LGBT Law Firm in Manila, Philippines
In the past, when the United States limited federal immigration benefits for same-sex partners, many gay couples settled for complicated immigration situations just to be with their partners. For example, some foreign partners stayed in the United States even with an expired visa or accumulated unlawful status. These were grounds for deportation.
With the extension of Conditional Waivers of Inadmissibility to same-sex couples, in some circumstances, it is now possible to apply for a marriage green card even when with previous violations. Under current immigration law, a competent U.S. immigration attorney can often offer guidance in applying for a conditional waiver in such situations.
