How to apply for residence in the United States:
Mexican Nationals who entered the United States illegally and are married to a United States Citizen can apply for a pardon or waiver of their unlawful presence. The waiver is granted if they prove extreme hardship to their U.S. citizen spouse.
If the waiver is approved they are admitted to the United States as a lawful permanent resident. If the pardon is denied they are not allowed to reapply for entry for 10 year.
This is a 3-step process which takes up to 1 year. Each step takes about 3 to 4 months to approve.
One must return to Mexico for the waiver. Presently the waiting time in Mexico could be 4 to 6 weeks.
Those persons who have a criminal record in the United States are not encouraged to apply. A waiver cannot be granted for someone who has entered the U.S. more than once and been caught at the border the second time.
