I Overstayed a Visa and Am Marrying a U.S. Citizen--Do I Need an I-601 Waiver?
I came to the U.S. on a work visa, then got laid off, but I didn’t leave the United States because I was dating an American citizen. Now, about two years later, we have gotten married and are pregnant, and she wants to start the green card application process for me. I keep hearing that people who were “unlawfully present” in the U.S. need a waiver on Form I-601 or I-601A. Do I need to apply for one of those?
