Provisional Waivers Provide Some Relief from Separation for U.S. Citizens and their Foreign National Spouses

Provisional I-601A Waivers provide some relief to the long separation couples endured prior to President Obama's policy changes in the waiver process for spouses of U.S. Citizens. This weekend, NPR featured a couple enduring one of those separations. They filed a waiver application prior to the Obama administration's implementation of the "state-side" waiver which allows the foreign national spouse to wait for an interview notice while remaining in the U.S. Rather than having to leave prior to the interview notice and potentially waiting for over a year while the application is being processed, as the couple in NPR's story. You can listen to their story here.

It's nice to know that there are provisions in the law for marriage relationships that even transcend national borders. It's like one is the servant, bowing out of the way for the sake of the other. It's encouraging to see the family take a higher place in the courts and legislatures.
