New Orleans Immigration Waiver Lawyer

If you have run into problems with the visa or green card application of a family member or are facing the threat of deportation, it is essential to speak with a lawyer experienced in obtaining immigration waivers. The term you may have heard or read is "inadmissibility." An inadmissibility bar essentially means that the person is alleged to have done something that makes him or her ineligible to obtain legal status or remain in the United States.

There are numerous types of waivers available under U.S. immigration law. At The Immigration Law Firm of New Orleans, an immigration waiver attorney will hear you out and personally review your case to determine your options and the best course of action. Dedicated lawyer Michael Gahagan has substantial experience in deportation defense and federal immigration litigation. His knowledge and capabilities cover:

  • Unlawful presence waivers for people who entered the country without following the proper immigration procedures — including those married to U.S. citizens
  • Waivers of removability for people accused or convicted of certain crimes and therefore facing removal proceedings

Whether a waiver may be obtainable depends on many factors, including the type of visa being sought or other immigration goals and the specific reason for inadmissibility. In many cases, success will depend on the attorney's diligence in demonstrating that a qualifying relative would suffer extreme hardship without the waiver. This may require presenting specific financial data along with other evidence. As an M.B.A. as well as a lawyer, Michael Gahagan is adept at managing this critical part of a case.
