    From the website


    Individuals who are inadmissable to the United States but have applied for legal residency under Sections 245A or 210 of the Immigration and Nationality Act may request a waiver of the grounds of excludability for humanitarian, family unity, or national interest reasons.


    For an alien who is ineligible to enter the United States to apply for a waiver of excludability.

    So, basically, the I-690 is more specified while the I-601 is more generic (to a point). What exactly is your situation? Perhaps we can help to clarify futher.

    Spouse: I appreciate your offer. let me give you brief history.

    my wife entered US on vwpp 1999 and after about 6 weeks, we got married and I was a Green holder then. She never went back and now I am naturlized and ready to file for her AOS. I already filed I-130 in 2001.

    My question are:
    1. Since she overstayed what problems could we face in her adjustment, if any. overstaying is the only offence, there is no other problem. We have one 11 months old baby.

    2. Do i have to file any wiavers

    3. Do i need a lawyer.

    Please respond, I will appreciate it. Thankyou.

    overstaying does not normally require a waiver if the person never left the USA. There should be no "unusual" problems because of the overstay.

    In my opinion, you not need a lawyer, as long as you are careful when filling out the forms, etc.
