The Law Offices of Sabrina Li has successfully assisted another client, and we are eager to share their story with you.
Our client approached us after marrying her United States citizen spouse. During our consultation, we discovered that she had joined the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) while attending college in China. Although she had submitted a request to end her membership with CCP, her party membership was not officially terminated by the party until 2021.
Our knowledgeable team immediately knew that our client would be found inadmissible under INA §212(a)(3)(D). Under INA §212(a)(3)(D), any immigrant who is or has been a member of or affiliated with the Communist or any other totalitarian party is inadmissible.

Concurrently, we filed an I-601 waiver for her inadmissibility. We established that our client had strong ties to the United States, would suffer greatly in her home country, and was an asset to the nation as a whole due to her work. We also established that our client deserved to be awarded adjustment of status due to her good character.
Our client later had an adjustment of status interview with USCIS. We meticulously prepared her for this pivotal step. Our hard work bore fruit when her application was approved a few weeks after her I-485 interview, making her a Lawful Permanent Resident!
An applicant may be excepted from inadmissibility under INA 212(a)(3)(D) if the immigrant can establish that:

However, a waiver might be available.
To qualify for a waiver for a prior membership in a totalitarian party, an individual must:
