212(c) Eligibility: Relief from Deportation Explained

Introduction

Section 212(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act provides relief for lawful permanent residents facing deportation due to certain criminal convictions. To be eligible, individuals must meet specific criteria, including having lawful permanent resident status for at least seven years, no convictions for aggravated felonies, and demonstrating good moral character. The decision to grant relief is discretionary and heavily influenced by the applicant’s rehabilitation efforts and overall character.
