In the beginning of this year the current administration announced that the Provisional Waiver program would begin by the end of this year. Most people who are eligible for the program are waiting for the program to launch before doing anything, but it is smarter to be proactive. Listed below are three things we recommend begin doing while waiting for the commencement of the Provisional Waiver program.
- Order official copies of all your documents such as birth certificates, divorce decrees, and passports now. Once the Provisional Waiver program begins the demand for document such as Mexican birth certificates will increase and so will wait times for receiving those documents.
- Find an attorney. The attorney can help you begin the I-130 process. By hiring an attorney now, you are guaranteeing that you will have a reasonably priced attorney by the time the process begins and demand for attorneys increase.
- File an I-130 petition. You will not be able to file for the Provisional Waiver until you receive an I-130 petition approval, which can take up to six months after filing.
