Welcome to Blackwell Immigration Law Group, the law office of Sarah Blackwell.  Sarah and her staff work exclusively on immigration law and primarily focus on family-based green cards, naturalization, waivers of inadmissibility and immigration processes for humanitarian purposes.  Although most clients live in the State of Wisconsin, we have clients throughout the country and around the world.

Sarah is an experienced and successful attorney who brings personal immigration experience to her pratice: she has emigrated to the U.S. not once but twice.  Having been through several U.S. immigration processes, she brings a unique perspective to her work and understands better than most other immigration attorneys what stresses and anxieties immigrants experience.

People usually come to Blackwell Law usually for one of the following reasons: 
  • They want to become lawful permanent residents, typically through sponsorship by a spouse or fiance(e)

  • The government has told them they are inadmissible and eligible for an exception to the inadmissibility laws

  • They have a green card and want to become a U.S. citizen

  • The government is trying to deport them

  • They have been a victim of certain crimes of violence that have hurt them physically or mentally and have helped law enforcement agencies invesigate and prosecute the offender

  • They have been a victim of domestic violence committed against them by a family member who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident

  • They qualify for humanitarian relief like DACA or TPS

These reasons each describe an area of immigration law. For more detailed information about each area, please go to our Practice Areas.

If your immigration needs don't quite fit the above list, we may still be able to help you or guide you to someone who can.

The Hardship Waiver and Permission to Re-Enter

Over seven years, we have developed considerable expertise at a particular area of immigration law known as "waivers of inadmissibility." This is an immigration application that helps certain individuals request an exception to a law that made them "inadmissible" to the U.S. If the exception is approved, the individual may enter the U.S. Depending on the nature of the offense, the request for an exception is known as "the hardship waiver" or "permission to re-enter." 

To qualify for the hardship waiver you have to prove you have a spouse or a parent who will suffer extreme hardship if you are not allowed to return immediately. Your spouse or parent must be a lawful permanent resident or a U.S. citizen.  You can find more information about hardship waivers under Practice Areas

Blackwell Law Group has prepared over 100 waivers over the last seven years. Only 6 cases have been denied and we won two on appeal. We don't get good results by taking easy cases.  We often take cases that other attorneys have refused.  We get good results because we are thorough in our research into the hardships our clients will suffer. Our past results don't guarantee our future results, but we believe you have a better chance of success working with Blackwell Law Group on possibly the most important immigration process of your life.
