Although it is commonly referred to as the “permanent bar,” INA §212(a)(9)(C) is not permanent. Similarly, a removal order does not always necessitate permanent removal. Our panel of experts will address how to create a plan of return for clients facing removal. They also will discuss how to utilize I-212 waivers and the passage of time to bring clients back to the United States.

Featured Topics

  • Analyzing Whether a Client Is Subject to the Permanent Bar
  • Advising Clients Regarding Overcoming INA §212(a)(9)(C) Prior to Departure: U Visas, T Visas, VAWA, and Other Options for Relief
  • Developing a Plan for Waiting Out INA §212(a)(9)(C) and Returning to the United States
  • Determining Whether an I-212 Waiver Is Needed: Waiting Out or Waiving 5–, 10–, and 20-Year Bars for Prior Removal Orders Under INA §212(a)(9)(A)
  • Procedures and Best Practices: Filing I-212 Waivers for Clients Both Inside and Outside of the United States
