New York City Cancellation of Removal

Facing removal proceedings in Queens?

Once proceedings have begun to remove you, as an alien, from the United States, there still may be a chance to avoid the final consequence of this action and remain legally in the United States. Immigration law provides for the possibility of cancellation of removal in certain circumstances and your New York immigration attorney can advise as to whether or not this may be an option for you.

The requirements for eligibility differ depending on whether or not you are a lawful permanent resident (LPR) but may encompass:

  • How long you have lived continuously in the United States. Note that the time considered for this requirement ceases to accrue if you are served with a Notice to Appear or if you commit a deportable offense.
  • Whether you have been of good moral character per the definition of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
  • Your criminal record. Note that conviction for an aggravated felony bars you from eligibility for cancellation except in certain limited circumstances.
  • You or your child has battered or subjected to extreme cruelty by your United States citizen or LPR spouse.
  • Whether your removal would result in extreme hardship for you or certain members of your family.
  • You are not otherwise inadmissible and deserve a favorable exercise of discretion.

We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Rockland County and Westchester County.
