Portland, OR asked in Immigration Law for Oregon

Q: My husband was deported, need to file for waiver 601. How can i prove hardship? and be successful to get it approved

My husband was deported in 2015 and got the 10 year bar and has 2 DUIS. Im a US Citizen and we are now married.

I know we will have to file I-212 as well as I-601 , I know I have to prove hardship but if the only thing I can prove is probably a mental health problem would that be enough to get the waiver approved? Is it a difficult case?

A: Without knowing more about your individual situation there is not enough information to determine whether or not you have enough hardship for a waiver to be approved. Waivers are extremely complex and difficult. I would strongly suggest working with an immigration attorney to prepare the waiver.
