Cancellation of Removal Proceedings

Answers from Knowledgeable Plano Immigration Lawyers

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can cancel the removal proceedings of a foreigner or alien who may be at risk of deportation, if there is compelling enough reason.

Have you been given notice of deportation? Whether you are an illegal alien, nonpermanent resident, or a permanent resident, you can petition to stop these proceedings. It first begins when you employ an immigration attorney in Plano at Zendeh Law Firm, PLLC to evaluate your case.

To be eligible, non-permanent residents must meet the following criteria:

  • Must have been physically present in the U.S. for at least 10 years before applying
  • Must have demonstrated “good moral character” within those 10 years
  • Does not have any deportable criminal offenses on record
  • Can prove that removal will cause extreme and undue hardship on a family member who is a permanent resident or a U.S. citizen

These are the eligibility requirements for permanent residents:

  • Must have been a lawful permanent resident for 5 years
  • Must be living in the U.S. continuously for 7 years after given permanent residency status
  • Has not committed an aggravated felony

The Process for Canceling Deportation

First, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) overseeing case, will review the details. Usually, an order of deportation has been placed on the individual. This will be accompanied with the reasons why, such as committing a deportable offense, as an example. If you have been charged with a crime, we can investigate the nature of your case and act in your defense. There are some crimes that may be considered deportable, such as crimes that involve “moral turpitude,” such as fraud, theft, child abuse, rape, or murder.

Another possible route to take to halt proceedings is to demonstrate how your deportation will affect your family or loved one, especially if they depend on you financially or rely on you for comfort, care, or companionship.
