Cancellation of Removal

Are you facing deportation?

For those who may be facing deportation due to an immigration status issue, consulting with a DeLand immigration attorney is essential in protecting your rights. At Buckmaster & Ellzey, we have helped numerous clients with their immigration needs and understand the emotional impact an order for deportation can bring on a family. Per United States Code Title 8, § 1229b, there are specific rights you have that our legal team is well-versed in and that we can use to assist you in cancellation of removal.

There are various legal avenues we can seek in assisting you in applying for cancellation. There are eligibility requirements under § 240A of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) that must be met, both for those that are permanent residents and those that are nonpermanent.

For lawful permanent residents, you must:

  • Have legal permanent resident status for at least 5 years
  • Have resided in the United States for a minimum of 7 years after having obtained legal residency and prior to receiving the notice of removal
  • Have no convictions for aggravated felonies

For nonpermanent residents, requirements include:

  • Has resided in the U.S. for a continuous 10 year period prior to receiving the notice
  • Has had good moral character throughout that period
  • Has not been convicted of any criminal offenses falling under specific categories
  • Any U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident family member would suffer extreme hardship if the person was removed
