Any person who is not a U.S. citizen and who attempts to fraudulently get a visa or other documentation to enter the United States or procure any other immigration benefit, or who willfully misrepresents a material fact in doing so, will be found ineligible for a U.S. visa and will not be able to adjust status to that of a lawful permanent resident. Anyone who entered the US with an immigrant visa as single but actually married will be sent to removal proceedings.
A waiver of this ineligibility is available in some cases, but they are difficult to come by, making it essential that those seeking entry into the U.S. don’t do anything that could possibly make them ineligible on these grounds.
Facing Misrepresentation Charges Because of Fraud in applying for green card?
If you have made a misrepresentation to an immigration or embassy official, or have used a fake passport to enter the U.S., you will be found to be inadmissible when applying for your green card. Before you apply for a green card, you will need to talk to an immigration lawyer who has experience in obtaining misrepresentation waivers. In order to qualify for the waiver, you will be required to show that your green card refusal will cause extreme hardship to your U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident spouse or parent.
Attorney Crispin Lozano can review your situation to determine the strength of your waiver application and will assist you in gathering the best evidence in support of your waiver application. The Lozano Law Offices have successfully obtain waiver of misrepresentation cases for those who are in removal proceedings, those who are applying for green card at the U.S. Embassy, and those who are seeking to adjust status in the U.S.
