DHS proposes revisions to Form I-191, Application for Relief Under Former Section 212(c)

  1. Original Date Announced

    July 8, 2020

    DHS proposes substantive and non-substantive revisions to Form I-191, Application for Relief under Former Section 212(c) of the INA. USCIS and EOIR use the information on the form to properly assess and determine whether the applicant is eligible for a waiver under former section 212(c) of the INA. Former section 212(c) waiver allows certain green card holders who have been placed in removal proceedings because they were convicted of a criminal offense to avoid being deported. Among the changes proposed include adding language to the form instructions notifying applicants that their application may be rejected or denied for failure to submit requested evidence or supporting documents. [ID #1112]
