South Florida Lawyers for Amnesty Immigration

Currently, there are no active immigration amnesty programs in place; however, the effects of INA § 245(i) are still seen today. Section 245(i) temporarily provided an opportunity for undocumented foreign nationals to obtain permanent resident status. The program was active between 1994 and January 1998 and again in 2000 and April 2001. When active, the amnesty program allowed those who entered the country illegally and those who entered legally but overstayed their visa expiration dates to qualify for adjustment of status.

Adjustment was based on family relationships and employment. Although, is has been over 10 years since the program was active, it continues to affect the lives of immigrants living in the U.S. today. The section grandfathered in spouses and children of immigrants who were adjustment eligible under § 254(i) to apply for permanent residence under the same section. Many immigrants are still involved in complicated legal situations due to this amnesty program.
