The Woodlands Cancellation of Removal Lawyer

Your Aggressive Deportation Advocate in Texas

Deportation proceedings begin with a Notice to Appear which will give you instructions to appear before a judge in immigration court. If you fail to appear, you will automatically be subject to removal from the U.S. However, a cancellation of removal may be applicable to your case. This is a legal remedy for deportation. Both lawful permanent residents (green card holders) and those who have entered illegally or overstayed their visas may be eligible to seek a cancellation of removal in deportation hearings.

Cancellation of Removal – Remedy for Removal from the U.S.

You must qualify as a lawful permanent resident or non-lawful permanent resident for a cancellation of removal. This remedy will allow you to adjust your status from being deportable to legal admittance for permanent residency.

As a lawful permanent resident, you may be granted a cancellation of removal if:

  • You have been a lawful permanent resident for at least five years
  • You have lived continuously in this country for at least seven years after lawful admittance
  • You have not committed an aggravated felony

Non-lawful permanent residents must meet certain requirements to be eligible as well. These include having maintained a continuous presence in this country for a minimum of 10 years, having a good moral character, not having committed a removable offense, and being able to show that deportation would cause an extreme hardship on one’s family members who are either citizens or green card holders.

Cancellation of removal is granted on a case-by-case basis during hearings before an immigration judge and is granted at his or her discretion.
