Cancellation of Removal

 

Cancellation of Removal is a type of relief available to permanent residents facing deportation and non-permanent residents facing removal proceedings.

If you are in deportation proceedings and have been a permanent resident for at least 5 years, lived in the United States for at least 7 years and can show that the reasons for deporting you are minimal compared to the positive factors in your life, you may be eligible for this form of relief which would enable to you remain a permanent resident.

 

If you are in removal proceedings, you would need to prove that you have been living in the United States for the past 10 years, you are a person of good moral character, and  your removal would cause exceptional  and extremely unusual hardship to a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident spouse, child or parent. If the immigration judge approves your case, you will be eligible for a green card. Our experienced attorneys can assist you in navigating this complex area of immigration relief.
