An Overview of Cancellation of Removal for Permanent Residents

There are very few things that are more stressful, unnerving, and frightening than facing deportation from a country. While green cards provide lawful permanent residency, they do not provide surefire protection against deportation. If you or someone close to you is facing removal, it is imperative that you carefully explore every possible defense against deportation. One possible deportation defense is the cancellation of removal for a permanent resident. Under the  Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) § 240A(a), cancellation of removal may be an option for green card holders who:

  • Have held lawful permanent residency for at least five years;
  • Have not been convicted of an “aggravated felony” criminal offense; and
  • Have not already had their removal cancelled in the past.

To be clear, meeting these requirements is necessary, not sufficient. Cancellation of removal is not guaranteed under United States law. An immigration judge has considerable discretion in these cases. With that in mind, it is crucial that anyone applying for an LPR cancellation of removal presents a strong, well-supported case. You or your loved one must prove that a continued green card is deserved.
