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.
