Cancellation of Removal Information

In order to be eligible for cancellation of removal, you must meet certain requirements. Even when those requirements are met, you are not guaranteed approval since the outcome is left to the discretion of the immigration judge handling your case. Because of this, it is in your best interests to have a competent deportation defense lawyer on your side who can argue a strong case for why you should be granted a cancellation of removal.

Cancellation of removal is a discretionary form of relief against deportation for certain reasons. Various reasons for deportation include conviction of serious crimes, having entered the U.S. illegally, overstaying the terms of your visa, having broken the conditions of a visa, or otherwise violating U.S. immigration law. The process of removal from the U.S. typically begins with a Notice to Appear.

Eligibility requirements for cancellation of removal differ depending on whether you are a permanent legal resident or nonpermanent resident.

Eligibility requirements for lawful permanent residents include:

  • You have had permanent resident status in the United States for a minimum of five years;
  • Before receiving your Notice to Appear or before the commission of the offense that made you inadmissible, you continuously resided in the United States for at least seven years (following your lawful admission under any status); and
  • You have no aggravated felony convictions on your record.

Eligibility requirements for nonpermanent residents include:

  • You maintained a physical presence in the United States for a period of at least 10 years and you have maintained good moral standing during that time. You must have fulfilled this requirement before receiving your Notice to Appear;
  • You have never been convicted of certain types of crimes; and
  • Your removal would cause a spouse, child, or parent who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident extremely unusual and significant hardship, and
  • You are deserving of deportation relief.

Cancellation of removal is also available to some individuals who have suffered from physical abuse or extreme cruelty at the hands of spouses or parents who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. In these cases, the individual only needs to have had a continuous presence in the U.S. for three years or more. The person must also be able to prove other general criteria. Other forms of relief may be available under various other aspects of U.S. immigration. This can be determined with the help of one of our knowledgeable immigration lawyers.
