The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the immigrant hardship waiver

The Supreme Court issued a really important decision today, Tuesday March 19, 2024.

The Supreme Court ruled that federal courts may now review determinations by immigration judges about whether deporting someone would result in “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” to a United States relative spouse, parent or child.

Previously, hardship decisions by immigration judges or by the board of immigration appeals could not be reviewed in federal courts. After today, if a person thinks that an immigration judge made the wrong decision on a “ten year” hardship case, that person can ask the federal courts to overturn that immigration judge’s decision.

Today's Supreme Court ruling is a significant victory for many immigrant families who may be eligible. Please call us today at 212-966-7775 for more information. This ruling may be able to help you!
