Waivers of Inadmissibility
Winter Park & Orlando Deportation Defense Lawyers
Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, a removal proceeding of an immigrant
can be waived. This can be executed by an immigration judge who can waive
the removal of an alien who has been determined inadmissible. Our attorneys at
Robert Brown LLC understand immigration laws that involve waivers for people whose criminal
acts lead to removal from the country.
Attorneys Robert Brown, Aleksandar Cuic, Rishi Oza, and Erin Brown can
thoroughly investigate your case to try and determine whether you were
unfairly targeted for persecution or deportation. We can also help investigate
the situation to determine if the criminal charge is genuine.
Offenses Deserving of Waivers
There are many different criminal offenses that are eligible for a waiver.
Many juvenile and petty offenses qualify for waivers. If an alien has
only been convicted of one crime or for an offense while under the age
of 18, then a waiver can be pursued with the assistance of a lawyer from our firm.
Process of Obtaining a Waiver
Attorneys from our firm can help you navigate the process of obtaining
a waiver of inadmissibility. The applicant can petition the United States
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to overlook the problem or
criminal offense. Once a waiver has been issued, you can request a green
card or visa. The waivers that can be obtained include:
Waiver 212(c) is designed to provide relief to aliens who are scheduled
for removal from the United States. This type of waiver demands that federal
courts maintain habeas corpus jurisdiction against removable immigrants
who have been accused of a criminal offense.
Waiver 212(i) offers assistance to immigrants who are subject to removal
because they committed fraud on an immigration document. Individuals who
apply for a 212(i) waiver must be able to provide evidence to the U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services that they have a "qualifying
relative" who would suffer hardship if the alien were removed from
Our attorneys can help if you are required to appear at a removal hearing
or need to file for
adjustment of status. Waiver 212(h) can be filed based on hardship to a family member or if
the criminal conviction was committed more than 15 years ago. Even if
either of these principles is established, the waiver can still be denied.
