Cancellation of Removal

If you are facing the prospect of removal or deportation from the United States, it is essential you find an experienced immigration attorney. The New York City Law Office of Emdin & Russell, LLP can help.

Removal or deportation is one of the most frightening experiences a person can have when he or she is not a permanent citizen of the country. Some research shows that as many as 59 percent of illegal aliens flee removal proceedings out of fear, hoping to stay under law enforcement’s radar and perhaps benefit from amnesty in the future.

Officials can threaten removal for a variety of reasons, so it’s important for you to understand your legal options and make the best decision in your case, which might include Cancellation of Removal proceedings.

How Cancellation of Removal Can Help You Remain in the United States

Experienced immigration attorneys can help you address the threat you face and assist you in attaining a Cancellation of Removal that will enable you to remain in the United States, even if you are not yet or do not intend to become a permanent citizen.

Anyone who is a lawful permanent resident or a non-lawful permanent resident has the option of applying for a Cancellation of Removal, as long as the following requirements are met:

  • You must be a lawful permanent resident for at least five years, or have been physically present in the United States for at least a decade
  • You cannot have been convicted of an aggravated felony or any other deplorable crime
  • You are considered to be an individual of good moral character
  • You are able to show that removal or deportation will result in extreme hardship for your spouse, parent, or child who is a permanent citizen of the United States

Obviously, proving any number of these requirements takes time and effort. An experienced attorney can help you build your strongest case and argue in your favor.
