Provisional pardon changes to punishment law go into effect

Changes to the process for applying for the Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver go into effect today, August 29, 2016.

The new regulations will allow certain undocumented family members of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, such as parents, spouses, unmarried children and siblings, and their spouses and unmarried children under the age of 21 who are applying for permanent residency, to apply for a provisional waiver of the law against punishment for living here illegally and find out if they will be approved before they leave the country.

Not everyone is eligible for a provisional pardon to the law of punishment. Read the following posts on my blog for more information:

It is extremely important to consult with an immigration attorney or a federally accredited representative before beginning the process for permanent residency to be sure that you meet all the requirements.

Please do not go to notaries, immigration consultants, paper fillers or multiservices. These people are not authorized to give you legal advice.
