Waivers of removal can be complex, and many practitioners are wary of the infrequently used INA §237(a)(1)(H) and §212(k) waivers. Learn from our panel of experts how to spot a case eligible for a §237(a)(1)(H) or §212(k) waiver, how to apply, and how to resolve common issues that arise when applying.

Featured Topics

  • Procedural Issues When Applying for the Waiver
  • What Types of Misrepresentation, Fraud, and Mistakes Are Covered?
  • Determining Whether the Client Is "Otherwise Admissible"
  • What Constitutes "Reasonable Diligence" for §212(k)?
