The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)
This is the act that covers all the rules and regulations that are to be followed by prospective immigrants who are planning to move to the United States or they already live there on a resident’s visa. The regulation for criminally convicted felons is simple and detailed as follows;
There are two types of criminal convictions, according to the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
Moral Turpitude: The misconduct in society in various ways that is not a crime of the first degree is considered the crime of moral turpitude. These are considered minor if fifteen years have passed since the crime and moral rehabilitation is confirmed.
Aggravated Felonies: Serious criminal offenses such as murder, fraud, drug offenses, terror attacks and similar crimes are considered aggravated felonies. All felonies with a one-year long conviction are called aggravated felonies. There is no clearance or waiver available for these offenses. The immigration application will be denied right away.
The 212(h) Waiver
The one way for clearing of a criminal record in the INA is the issuance of a waiver from the USCIS office for the offense in question. Following are the criteria to become eligible for the waiver;
The so-called 212(h) waiver can provide deportation defense for individuals. The 212(h) waiver can be used if the immigrant falls under the following conditions:
- The criminal activity in your records occurred 15 years or more before the immigrant applied for the visa;
- The admission to the U.S. wouldn’t be contrary to the safety, security or the national welfare of the country;
- The individual has been rehabilitated.
- You are eligible to apply, but whether you will receive the acceptance from USCIS is a case by case situation and totally depends on your police clearance certificate translation or the translation of your criminal records.
Cheap certified translation of criminal records
Certified translation of criminal records is the most significant part of your application. Following are the few tips that we think you should consider;
Attorney Advice: Your attorney will give you a detailed advice on how to get your documents translated and what relevant factors should you include. Follow the advice carefully.
Certified Translation: Every translation needs to be certified by the translator. The translator will certify that the contents of the translation are accurate and valid and should be accepted on his responsibility.
Translation Format: Every translation will require that you print out the translation in a format that is identical to the original document. This requires graphic designing and similar technology and will require a professional translation agency.
Along with translating criminal records, we also provide police clearance certificate translation and police reports translation.

Now we will review a few questions that we have regularly seen our clients ponder. This is so that you will not have to look for a FAQs section on the matter;
What if we keep the criminal record a secret?
You can’t. When you apply for immigration, background checks are conducted by the US government. Fingerprints, your case history, your police records and similar matters will disclose your situation to the USCIS office. If they find out themselves, they will call this a fraudulent activity and you will be banned from the United States for the rest of your life.
What is the best way to have a successful immigration?
Get an attorney. Most individuals get attorney help for their immigration process anyway. But in this case, we strongly recommend that you get help from an attorney and make sure that they see your case as a hopeful one. Your attorney will best advise you on how to present your documents and shed light on the strong points of your case.
What are the rehabilitation expectations?
These are not too well- defined, but a good job, proper salary and an active member of the society are our best guesses. Universal Translation Services will advise you to look further with your attorney in order to know more.
