Who Qualifies for Cancellation of Removal?
There are two types of cancellation of removal from deportation and each type depends on your current status. The first type of cancellation of removal is Section A Cancellation. To qualify for this type of cancellation of removal, you must be a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) and demonstrate that you:
- Have been a lawful permanent resident for at least 5 years
- Have consecutively lived in the United States for 7 years minimum after having been lawfully admitted to the United States
- Have not been convicted of an “aggravated felony”
The second type of cancellation is Section B Cancellation. To qualify for this type of cancellation, you must have non-permanent resident status (undocumented) and demonstrate that you:
- Have continuously resided in the United States for at least 10 years
- Have been a person of good moral character during the 10-year period
- Have not been convicted of an offense that would make you ineligible (Examples: Domestic Violence, Drug Charges, aggravated felony)
- Must show that removal would result in extreme and unusual hardship to immediate United States Citizen (USC) family members who have LPR status or are U.S. citizens
What Happens During Deportation Proceedings?
During deportation proceedings, the presiding judge will balance your positive factors against negative factors to determine whether or not to grant you a cancellation of removal.
Positive factors include:
- Family Ties
- History of employment
- Community service
- An extended residency in the United States
- Property & assets
Negative Factors include:
- Criminal record
- Immigration violations
- Attitude towards crimes i.e. rehabilitation, remorse
Lawful Permanent Residents who are granted a Section A Cancellation get to keep their status and stay in the United States. Undocumented immigrants that are granted Section B Cancellations essentially receive Lawful Permanent Resident status and are allowed to remain in the United States.
