12.7 – National Qualified Representative Program

As part of enhanced procedural protections, EOIR’s National Qualified Representative Program (NQRP) is a program that provides Qualified Representatives to certain unrepresented and detained respondents who are found by an immigration judge or the BIA to be incompetent to represent themselves in immigration proceedings.

EOIR carries out the NQRP through the effort of federal staff and a contract. For further information, please visit EOIR’s website.
