Video – Unlawful Presence Bars & Waivers

Unlawful Presence BarsFor persons wishing to immigrate to the U.S., the process of getting a green card can become very difficult if they have accumulated “unlawful presence” in the U.S. Unlawful presence is a term of art and is not the same as being illegal.

In this immigration video, Attorney Carl Shusterman discusses the meaning of unlawful presence as it relates to persons who: (1) entered the U.S. without inspection; (2) overstayed this authorized period of stay; or (3) violated their temporary visa status in the United States. He also explains who is subject to the 3-year bar, the 10-year bar, and the permanent bar and touches on the how to obtain a waiver of unlawful presence.

Go to a Law Firm which is Professional and Knowledgeable

“Very professional law firm. We had a difficult issue and Mr. Shusterman’s office got right onto the case and resolved the issue with USCIS. Because of their efforts, me and my family were able to get our Legal Permanent Residency card. My suggestion to those trying to obtain employment based card. Don’t look for money saving attorney. They will cost you lot more in long run. Go to a law firm which is professional and knowledgeable. It pays in the long term.”
