Understanding Cancellation of Removal for Non-LPR

Long-term, non-lawful permanent residents (NPR), also known as undocumented or illegal immigrants, may be able to seek cancellation of removal to stay in the United States if they meet certain requirements. The U.S. Department of Justice sets forth guidelines and qualifications for cancellation of removal. At Mathur Law Offices, P.C., our experienced Dallas immigration lawyer can answer your questions and represent you throughout the process.

By law, you may be eligible for cancellation of removal if you:

  • Have been physically present in the United States for a continuous 10-year period or longer;
  • Have acted as a good moral person during the last 10 years;
  • Have qualifying family (parent, child, spouse with resident or citizen status) who would suffer extreme hardship if you are removed;
  • Have no convictions under §212(a)(2), §237(a)(2), or §237(a)(3) in the INA.

In order to achieve cancellation of removal, you must meet the standards of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). In addition, you may be able to change your status from an undocumented immigrant to a lawful permanent resident (Green card holder or LPR) once you achieve cancellation of removal. Even if you don’t meet all the requirements, you may still be able to seek relief, depending on the circumstances. For example, if your child was a victim of violence from your U.S.-citizen spouse, or you are not inadmissible or deportable under certain restrictions of the INA, you may be able to seek cancellation of removal.

This relief is granted based on the discretion of the court. Each case is different, and the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act (IIRAIRA) of 1996 put a limit on the number of cases involving cancellation of removal allowed each year. If you are an illegal immigrant facing removal from the U.S., our immigration attorney can analyze your situation and discuss your options for seeking cancellation of removal. We know you are going through a stressful time. That is why our firm, led by Mr. Mathur, can work tirelessly to guide you through the legal process.

Under section 240A(b)(1) of the INA, you are not eligible for cancellation of removal if you:

  • Are an alien previously granted relief and cancellation under INA laws prior to the IIRAIRA;
  • Entered the country as a crewman after June 30, 1964;
  • Are an alien who is inadmissible or deportable under INA regulations.

If you were admitted to the country as a nonimmigrant exchange alien for graduate medical training or education, you will not be eligible for cancellation, even if you fulfilled the 2-year permanent residency requirement. Furthermore, if you were admitted to the country for a reason other than to receive graduate medical training or education, and failed to fulfill the 2-year requirement or obtain a waiver, you will not be able to seek cancellation of removal. Undocumented immigrants who ordered, assisted, or participated in persecution against an individual because of race, political opinion, nationality, religion, or membership in a particular group will also not be able to seek relief through the INA.
