Waiver of Inadmissibility

San Jose Immigration Defense Lawyer

As a lawful permanent resident, you are subject to inadmissibility or deportation for the commission of aggravated felonies or crimes involving moral turpitude. Many federal felonies are classified as aggravated felonies or crimes involving moral turpitude. These may include:
  • Identity theft
  • Fraud
  • Alien smuggling
  • Social security fraud
  • Obstruction of justice
  • Perjury
  • Sexual abuse of a minor
  • Major theft crimes and burglary
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug sales and trafficking
One or more convictions for these or other crimes can trigger a deportation. In some cases, you may seek a waiver of inadmissibility under INA Section 212(h) to prevent your convictions from being used against you at your deportation hearing. You need a San Jose immigration defense attorney who is a determined and talented litigator to fight for a waiver of inadmissibility for you.
