Resolving Immigration ProblemsIn An Honest & Responsible Manner

212(c) waivers and other available deportation remedies

Immigrants currently residing in California and in other states across the country may, at some point, find themselves in need of relief from deportation. The deportation and removal process is, understandably, frightening, as families are often ripped apart and lives are totally changed. There are a number of defenses that can be utilized to stall and/or stop the deportation process. Applying for 212(c) waivers, if eligible, is just one of them.

Depending on an immigrant’s status, there are a number of waivers that may help stall or stop the deportation process. Those with criminal convictions, though, may feel that there is little hope in successfully winning this fight. A 212(c) waiver is designed to grant certain permanent residents with criminal convictions relief from deportation and removal.

The laws regarding this specific type of waiver are constantly evolving. An experienced immigration attorney should be able to answer any questions you may have and provide information as to the current 212(c) eligibility requirements. To learn more about the different waivers and other deportation remedies now available, please visit our Deportation Remedies, Waivers and Asylum Lawyers page.

California residents who are fighting for the right to remain in the country — especially those with criminal records — often feel they have no options, but this is far from the truth. By applying for 212(c) waivers and/or other forms of deportation relief, it is possible to fight the removal process. An immigration attorney can help determine which form of relief you or your loved one might qualify for, assist in filing the necessary paperwork and provide representation at deportation hearings so you don’t have to fight this alone.
