What is considered an extreme hardship for a 601 waiver?

Individuals who live in the United States for at least one year and who do not have legal status in the country may be deported. Upon their deportation they may be subject to a 10-year ban on re-entry and may only then, after a decade has passed, apply for legal status to come back. Individuals in Kentucky who fear deportation and the 10-year ban may be eligible for a 601 waiver, which allows a person to adjust their legal status when they would face an extreme hardship if they were deported.

The language barrier may be one of your biggest challenges as you adapt to life in Kentucky after traveling to the United States from another country of origin.

Government seeks to change rules for asylum seekers

Mass deportations planned, pushed back by federal government

A matter of weeks ago, President Donald Trump announced that federal government officials would step up efforts to expedite the deportation of thousands of individuals who have been alleged to be living in the United States illegally. The federal government has worked to pass legislation to improve conditions for men, women and children who cross the United States border for entry into the country, but as of this week President Trump plans to move ahead with the plan to execute mass deportations.

What role does family play in obtaining a green card?

A "green card" grants a non-US citizen the right to remain permanently in the country where they may live, work and grow their family.

One of the most efficient ways to seek and obtain a green card is through a family connection, and this post will address some of the ways that family can influence this process.
