An undocumented immigrant or even a green card holder can be placed under removal proceedings if he/she is found to have been part of a criminal activity in the States. This may result in the person having hearings with an immigration judge, and based on judge’s decision, they may be placed under mandatory detention. However, USlaw allows individuals in removal proceedings to seek legal representation and apply for relief, wherever applicable. One such application is the cancellation of removal.
Cancellation of removal is when the immigration judge presiding over you case, decides to cancel the removal proceedings, given the fact that the individual who has been subjected to the removal process proves his continued presence in the United States of America for at least 10 years, prior to being placed in the removal proceedings. He/she also needs to prove good behavior and moral character for at least 10 years, for being eligible to apply for cancellation of removal, and finally he must also show with valid proof that the permanent resident child, spouse or parent of the person in removal proceedings will undergo unusual and exceptional hardship, unless the removal is cancelled. The judge may also decide to cancel the removal, if the person being placed under proceedings has been a victim of extreme cruelty or battery within the last 3 years, at the hands of a United States citizen, permanent resident parent or spouse.
