What You Need to Know About Cancellation of Removal for Resident Aliens

Lawful permanent residents (LPR), also known as resident aliens, may seek cancellation of removal to stay in the United States under certain conditions. In order to qualify, you must meet the requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Our knowledgeable Dallas immigration attorney can talk with you to discuss your situation. Our firm can provide efficient legal services as you seek a beneficial outcome.

In order to seek cancellation of removal as an LPR, you must:

  • Have not been convicted of an “aggravated felony” charge;
  • Have maintained LPR status for at least 5 years prior to filing the application;
  • Have lived for at least 7 years with continuous residence in the U.S. after lawful admission.

If you have committed a criminal offense in sections 212(a)(2) or 237(a)(2) of the INA, or if you have committed a security offense under section 237(a)(4) of the INA, you may still be able to seek cancellation of removal. Every case is different. Courts must consider all relevant factors when making a determination. Relief is granted with discretion.
