Question:

Am I Eligible for Cancellation of Removal if I am a Lawful Permanent Resident?

Answer:

Our office represents a lot of lawful permanent residents, and a lot of these permanent residents are currently in removal proceedings. What we do is we try to explore all the different possibilities, all the different forms of relief to prevent removal. One of the common forms of relief that we always discuss is cancellation of removal. A question that we hear a lot is, “What is cancellation of removal?”

Cancellation of removal is a form of defense in immigration court. It’s a way to keep the permanent resident here in the United States. What you have to prove is seven years of continuous physical presence in the United States. You also have to prove five years of lawful permanent residency. You also have to prove that you have no aggravated felony convictions.

If you can prove all of that, then the question becomes whether or not you deserve the right to remain here. This is at the discretion of the immigration judge. The immigration judge will review everything about your life to make a decision on whether or not you deserve to remain here and whether you deserve a second chance to remain in the United States.
