Several weeks ago, Henry came in for a consultation to discuss an I-601 waiver of inadmissibility for his wife, Elizabeth. Last year, they had attended Elizabeth’s interview in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and she was denied a visa. Elizabeth did not know why she was denied because the officer only told her “you are inadmissible and you will not get a visa.” Elizabeth was given a blue piece of paper with lots of writing and the officer asked her to leave.
Elizabeth could only assume that it had to do with something that happened many years ago when she was 18. She had not mentioned this to her attorney or to her husband. She didn’t think it was important. But, now, after being denied, she was fearful that this was the reason for her denial.
