I-212 Waiver Approved, Client Admissible

Attorney Mooradian's client, a young man from Central America, recently received the approval of his I-212 inadmissibility waiver after being found inadmissible during a consular interview.  The finding of inadmissibility was expected given that the individual faced an expedited removal at the airport when officers had questioned his immigrant intent during previous tourism travel to the United States.

Now, given that this beneficiary has a U.S. Citizen fiancé whom he intends to marry, he had been granted a K1 approval by USCIS.  However, Department of State could not find him admissible and issue a K1 visa for travel without first determining that he had permission to reapply for admission via the waiver.

The waiver focused on the relationship between the beneficiary and his U.S. Citizen future spouse; the country conditions in his country of origin; the lack of any criminal history or significant derogatory information in his record; and his subsequent compliance with U.S. immigration laws. After several months of processing, the I-212 waiver was approved.  The beneficiary can now move forward with consular processing and enter the United States as the fiancé of a U.S. Citizen.
