Cancellation of Removal for Nonpermanent Residents

Deportation Defense Attorney in Northern Virginia

We have many years of experience representing individuals before the U.S. Immigration Court who are facing the prospect of being removed from the United States. If you have been placed in removal proceedings and are in need of competent legal counsel, The Law Offices of Miguel Rivera stands ready to assist you. When you meet with us, we will thoroughly review your case and consider a variety of legal options that may allow you to remain in the United States. If you qualify, we will assist you in obtaining cancellation of removal that will allow you to remain in the United States as a lawful permanent resident (green card holder). In order to qualify for cancellation of removal you must:

  • Provide evidence of your physical and continuous presence in the United States for the last 10 years;
  • Provide evidence of your good moral character;
  • Provide evidence that you have not been convicted of any disqualifying criminal offenses; and
  • Provide evidence that your removal would result in exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to your spouse, parent or child who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States.

Cancellation of Removal for Certain Permanent Residents

Lawful permanent residents who find themselves in removal proceedings may also apply for cancellation of removal. In order to qualify you must:

  • Provide evidence that you have maintained lawful permanent resident status for at least five years;
  • Provide evidence that you have resided in the United States continuously for at least seven years after being legally admitted into the country; and
  • Provide evidence that you have not been convicted of any aggravated felony as defined within section 101(a)(43) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

If you are granted cancellation of removal, the immigration judge presiding over your case will terminate the removal proceedings against you, thus allowing you to remain in the United States as a lawful permanent resident.
