Cancellation of Removal
Cancellation of Removal is a benefit available to certain individuals in the immigration court process who have been in the United States for 10 years or longer, who do not have a serious criminal history, and who have U.S. Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident immediate relatives who truly need them to be in the United States to support them financially, medically, and/or emotionally.
Cancellation of Removal is a benefit that applicants can only request if they already have an active immigration court case, and it is usually very difficult to win. There are a limited number of Cancellation Visas available, so applicants may have to wait several years after their final hearing before receiving a decision. However, those individuals that do win a Cancellation application will end up with Lawful Permanent Resident status.
An experienced immigration attorney is often the best way to have a fighting chance at winning your Cancellation of Removal case.
