A few days ago USCIS released their statistics for provisional waivers. I took a little time to review the statistics from 2013 through 2016 year to date. Below are the results with percentages for the cumulative totals:
Total I-601 A Provisional Waivers Filed: 137,145
Total Approved: 84,231 or 61.42%
Total Denied: 29,620 or 21.60%
Total Pending Decision: 23,295 or 17%
The provisional waiver is a valuable tool to promote family immigration. It can allow the spouse of a U.S. citizen to become lawfully present. Waiver law is a complicated part of our immigration laws. Please talk to an experienced immigration lawyer to find out if you are eligible. Do not become one of the 29,620 families denied. Get good representation.
