Cancellation of Removal. Illegal immigrants that are placed in deportation proceedings may seek relief or protection through a number of forms, including but to limited to:
Adjustment of Status,
Cancellation of Removal,
Waivers of Inadmissibility,
Suspension of Deportation, and
Cancellation of Removal.
The U.S. Department of Justice establishes that long-term non-lawful permanent residents (NPR) may be eligible for cancellation of removal under section 240A(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
To be eligible for cancellation of removal and an adjustment of status to LPR, a NPR must demonstrate:
To have been physically present in the United States for a continuous period of 10 years prior to receiving the Notice to Appear;
To have been a person of good moral character during the 10 year period;
To have not been convicted of a criminal offense under § 212(a)(2), § 237(a)(2) or § 237(a)(3) of the INA, and
His/her U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident family members would suffer an exceptional and extremely unusual hardship if the alien is removed.
