A: I agree with my colleague. You need to retain counsel to file the 601 waiver application. You only have one chance to get it right, and if you don’t, you will be considered inadmissible and put into removal proceedings.

A: It’s one thing to say that you can and another thing to prove it. Some applicants may have other issues that complicate the waiver process.

Many applications for waivers are delayed or denied, because the evidence to prove the claim was not enough as a matter of law and/or discretion.

You and your family ought to decide how much they value your return to the United States. Also, whether it is worth it to hire an competent and experienced immigration attorney.

A: Consider scheduling a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Although you may in fact need to file a waiver for whatever ground of inadmissibility the government has asserted applies, sometimes the government's assessment is incorrect that a particular criminal conviction is a conviction of an offense that renders one inadmissible. A good immigration attorney would first evaluate whether the government's determination is correct. Ever since the onset of COVID-19, many attorneys offer telephonic or online video consultations. Good luck.
