Cancellation of Removal.

Removal and deportation proceedings are serious legal situations which must be confronted with a powerful defense. You want to keep your family intact and live your life in peace. You need a law firm with a proven record of aggressively fighting unjust removals.

Deportation and removal proceedings are heard in an immigration court. As soon as you learn that you may be removed or deported, you should immediately speak with an immigration defense attorney and talented litigator with a thorough understanding of immigration law and effective defenses.

Cancellation of Removal is available to certain long term permanent residents who are facing removal proceedings (deportation) who have been convicted of certain crimes involving moral turpitude, drug offenses, and domestic violence or child abuse crimes.

To qualify for this waiver you must have:

-Resided in the U.S. as a permanent resident for 5 years; and
-Lived in the U.S. continuously for 7 years in any lawful status
-As a legal resident, you must present strong and persuasive reasons as to why you should be allowed to stay in the country. You will need to prove strong family connections, employment, and a reform of character. If you have a criminal record, you must discuss this matter thoroughly with your attorney.

Other common grounds for deportation or removal include: unlawful entry into the United States, carrying on with prohibited employment activity, unlawful presence, status violations and more.

Our office can assist you with filing an application for 42A or 42B cancellation of removal. We can try to reopen your case if your application for cancellation of removal was wrongly denied, or if you were ordered removed based on an invalid NTA. Our office can request to terminate your case due to the defective NTA. We can also appeal your case based on a denial of cancellation of removal. Our office will stay with you throughout the process, remaining up to date on any changes to the law that could help you, and vigorously fighting on your behalf.

If you have been told that you are not eligible for 42A (INA 240A(a)) or 42B (INA 240A(b)) cancellation of removal due to the residency requirements, speak with an immigration attorney as soon as possible–you may now be eligible.


It is in your best interest to talk with a qualified lawyer as quickly as possible.
