Cancellation of Removal in Deportation
Removal proceedings, also known as deportation proceedings, are legal proceedings initiated by the U.S. government to determine whether an individual should be removed from the country. These proceedings occur before the immigration court, where an immigration judge hears the case and determines the individual's fate.
Cancellation of removal is available to both lawful permanent residents (green card holders) and undocumented immigrants who have been living in the United States for a specific period. You must apply with the U.S. Department of Justice for cancellation of removal.
The eligibility criteria for cancellation of removal vary depending on your immigration status:
LAWFUL PERMANENT RESIDENTS
To qualify for cancellation of removal as a green card holder, you must have been a lawful permanent resident for at least five years, have continuously resided in the U.S. for at least seven years after being admitted, and have not been convicted of certain serious crimes.
Undocumented immigrants can apply for cancellation of removal if they have been living in the U.S. for at least ten years, have demonstrated good moral character, have not been convicted of certain crimes, and can prove that their removal would cause exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to a qualifying U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse, parent, or child.
