Default I-601 Waiver Lawyer - Revised Form I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmi

USCIS has revised Form I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility to make it easier for applicants to complete. Applicants may now select from a list of grounds of inadmissibility on the form itself and mark all which apply to them in order to request a waiver. This was confusing to many applicants in the past as they were not sure what to type in this section.

In addition to the list, the form includes a section where applicants can describe, in their own words, why they believe they are inadmissible. Again, this is something that was not so clear in the previous version of the form. In the previous edition of Form I-601, information about grounds of inadmissibility could only be found in the form's instructions.

Please note that USCIS will continue to accept the previous version of the form, dated 10/30/08 Y, through November 20,2009. Beginning November 21, 2009 USCIS will only accept the revised Form I-601, dated 04/06/09 N, and will reject all requests using previous editions of the form. Concern is that Applicants using notarios and other consultants, may be rejected as these non lawyers may not be informed of the new procedures.
