N-648 Waiver Certification

There may be many reasons for new immigrants to the United States to become citizens. It is a matter of pride for many. I remember how happy we were when we finally became citizens in 1985 (Dr. Mirman). All applicants for Citizenship must pass an exam, including knowledge of English (speaking, reading and writing) and American Civics (history, Government, etc). The exam is not easy for some people. Most study hard and pass it. Some can’t. Form N-648 (Medical Certification for Disability Exceptions) is available to those that are truly unable to pass the naturalization exam due to medical reasons. It is intended for applicants who are looking to get an exception due to physical or mental impairment or developmental disability.

According to United States law, the Form N-648 is “intended for an applicant who seeks an exception to the English and/or civics requirements due to a physical or developmental disability or mental impairment that has lasted, or is expected to last, 12 months or more. An applicant who with reasonable accommodations provided under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 can satisfy the English and civics requirements does not need to submit this form. Reasonable accommodations include, but are not limited to, sign language interpreters, extended time for testing, and off-site testing.”

Our licensed physicians and psychologists can complete this form for you. We have extensive experience doing this since 1996 and have accumulated hundreds of successful cases without a single failure. Most of the time our doctors are able to complete the form correctly the first time, to avoid rejection by the immigration department.

“Three of the providers at Life Medical are qualified, caring Civil Surgeons. We are ready to help patients with I-693 or N-648.”

Our first pass rejection rate of the form N-648 is under 5%, because we are careful to do the job correctly the first time.

We provide outstanding service and are very confident in our abilities. However, in the event you receive a rejection notice, we will take the necessary steps to fix it at no additional cost to you. A small minority of the applicants have to apply for the second time with the corrected form. We have had only 2 cases out of hundreds applicants we’ve helped, where they needed to re-apply twice. In the end we always succeed.

“We have three providers at Life Medical who are very experienced immigration doctors,” says Dr. Jacob Mirman. “Dr. Nina Bacaner, Mutnick and Mirman are caring physicians.”

That is why we can offer you this money back guarantee: If we agree to complete the Form N-648 for you, we guarantee its eventual approval by the USCIS officer. If it is initially rejected, we will fix it as many times as necessary to gain the approval at no extra cost to you, until it is approved. If you filed in Minnesota and the Form N648 we prepared is rejected irreversibly and you are not allowed to re-apply, we will refund all the fees you paid us for this work.  For applicants in other states we will continue working with you as long as necessary at no extra charge to gain the approval, but the money back promise does not apply.  There are just too many complications in working across state lines.

Our doctors will agree to complete your N-648 form, once they ascertain that you meet the requirements for disability and validate that you or your loved one are unable to learn the necessary material required by the US immigration department.

If you are unsure if you or your loved one is eligible for a medical waiver, we can schedule a consultation at no charge, to go over your individual case.

The charges for this service depend on the situation, so please inquire. The base charge is $1,500 per person. If a married couple is coming to get it done together, it is $2,500 for both. Long term patients of our medical and psychology services may get other discounts. In some rare situations some tests are needed to substantiate the disability, and may cost extra.
