Cancellation of Removal
New York City Immigration Lawyer
When you have been placed in removal proceedings, whether you are a lawful or unlawful resident of the U.S., you may be qualified to have your deportation cancelled. In order to accomplish this, you will need a New York City immigration attorney who is willing to fight hard to get your status changed and one who is very experienced in deportation and immigration situations. For over 4 decades, Feiner & Lavy P.C., Attorneys at Law has aggressively worked to provide high-quality immigration services for realistic legal fees. Our commitment to your immigration needs can prove vital when you face the threat of deportation.
We strive to provide aggressive representation when you need it most. In certain cases, an individual's status can be changed from a deportable alien to a person who is legally admitted for permanent residence. If you are a lawful permanent resident of the U.S., you can be qualified for a cancellation of removal if you have not been convicted of an aggravated felony, have been a permanent resident for at least 5 years and have resided in the U.S. continuously for 7 years after having been admitted into the country.
Deportation for Non-Lawful Permanent Residents
If you are a non-lawful permanent resident, your eligibility to have your removal cancelled is based on:
- You have not been convicted of a crime that would you cause you to be deported or be inadmissible into the country
- Have had "good moral character" for a 10 year span
- Have been physically present in the U.S. continually for a minimum of 10 years prior to your application for cancellation of removal
- Can show that by being deported it would cause an extreme hardship to your spouse, parent or children
We work hard to prove these points with documentation and witnesses and to argue your case before the Immigration court. Terms such as "good moral character" can be vague and require knowledge of what a judge will be looking for in order to prevail. Likewise, we know what immigration laws state regarding the type of crimes that can and cannot be a basis for removal from the country.
Our attorneys understand that keeping your family together and staying in the U.S. is important and we take our efforts to represent you in these matters seriously.
