Waivers of Inadmissibility

212(h) Waiver

Usually, you are at risk for deportation or removal proceedings if you have an uncertain legal status. However, it is not uncommon that a lawful permanent resident is placed in removal proceedings due to certain violations. Depending on the status of your case, you may need help applying for a stand-alone 212(h) waiver which is needed to waive the application of certain crimes such as:

  • crimes involving moral turpitude
  • prostitution
  • commercial vice
  • possession of 30 grams or less of marijuana
  • multiple criminal convictions
  • other criminal offenses

212(c) Waiver

You can also be placed in removal proceedings due to criminal activity, even as a legal permanent resident.  You may seek a waiver depending upon the type of crime you committed and the date of your conviction. This type of waiver is known as a 212(c) waiver. An immigration judge will consider certain factors in their decision, such as:

  • family relationships that exist in the United States
  • the length of residence
  • property ownership
  • business ties
  • value and service to the community
  • the nature of your criminal record
  • evidence of moral character
