Your client wants to be become a lawful permanent resident but he has a criminal record. You're not sure if his record will bar him from eligibility. Your lawful permanent resident client was placed in removal proceedings upon returning from a trip abroad. You need to determine if she can retain her residency through a waiver. Who qualifies for a waiver of crime-based inadmissibility? What kinds of crimes are covered and what do you need to show to qualify for a waiver? When can a lawful permanent resident use a 212(h) waiver to overcome losing his or her status based on a criminal conviction? To learn all about 212(h) waivers, join CLINIC attorneys Sarah Bronstein and Susan Schreiber for a webinar on this topic.
