What to Know About Cancellation of Removal for Non-Permanent Residents

Under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) § 240A(b)(1), cancellation of removal is a defense against deportation. If you or your loved one is an undocumented person who has been living in the United States for a significant amount of time and is now facing deportation from the country, cancellation of removal may be the best available option. Often referred to as a ‘Non-LPR Cancellation of Removal’, this deportation defense is available to undocumented immigrants who can meet the following requirements:

  1. Long-Term Residency: You must prove that you have been living within the United States of America for at least a decade.
  2. Qualifying Relationships: You must have a qualifying relative who is a citizen or lawful permanent resident.
  3. Extreme Hardship: You must provide evidence that your relative would suffer an “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” if removal is pursued.

Cancellation of removal for non green card holders is not guaranteed under the law. Even if you are able to satisfy the requirements, an immigration judge still retains considerable discretion. As such, it is crucial that you and your family are able to present the strongest possible case that cancellation of removal is justified and appropriate.
