INA 212(h) Waiver

INA 212(h) Waiver

212(h) waivers are part of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). These waivers are put in place to authorize waivers for those who are inadmissible to the United States due to criminal convictions. If an applicant for 212(h) waivers can prove they have been rehabilitated since their crime and are not a national threat, this may save them from deportation. Additionally, the crime committed must have occurred more than 15 years before applying for entry into the United States.

Do I Qualify for a 212(h) Waiver?

If you have applied for entry into the United States and been denied due to a previous criminal conviction, you may be eligible for a 212(h) waiver. If a previously committed crime from more than 15 years ago is standing in your way, contact the attorneys at Scott D. Pollock & Associates, P.C. today.
