On the Path to a Green Card: I-601A

I-601A Waiver Allowed to apply for a Green Card

Coming to America

Our client, Mr. W, was born in China in 1972. He came to the U.S. as a young man seeking a better life in 1997. While immigration authorities denied his application for a Green Card in 2001, he continued living and working in the United States, still seeking his American dream. In 2007, he married another Chinese immigrant. His wife’s sister had come to the U.S. in 1990. Soon, her parents came here too. She followed the rest of her family in 2005. After getting married and living in the country for six years, she became a U.S. citizen. Mr. W and his wife are raising two young children together. He was worried that his life could be taken away from him without status. He wanted to get a Green Card but knew that there were obstacles in his way.

Success with our Firm

Mr. W came to Margaret W. Wong & Associates for help with his case. Because of his wife’s citizenship, we knew that the first step was to have his wife file an I-130 Petition for Alien Relative for him. Soon, this was approved and we could move on to the more difficult task of writing an I-601A Waiver, which would allow him to apply for a Green Card if it was approved. This application requires many different kinds of supporting documents. Our intrepid team helped the family gather everything that we would need to file the application. We made sure to document the hardship that his family would face if he had to leave the country. Recently, we were happy to learn that his application was approved. Now we can help him file for a Green Card and his 20-year quest for legal status in the USA will finally be at an end. We are all looking forward to the day when he can carry his Green Card proudly.
