What happens if you have lived in the United States for a long time and you are faced with possible deportation away from your family members who really need you? Cancellation of Removal may be available for a person who has been in the United States for a period of 10 years, can demonstrate good moral character and whose deportation would result in exceptional and unusual hardship to their United States citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse, parent or child.
The key to success in these cases is the time spent in preparing documentation and evidence to prove the high exceptional hardship standard. Yemi Getachew Immigration Law Office, P.C., takes the time to explore all the areas that constitute hardship and prepares a well-documented application. For decades, our team has focused exclusively on immigration, including the defense of noncitizens threatened with removal. Our clients live all over the Bay Area and Northern California.
Worried About A Criminal Conviction?
What about when you find yourself with a criminal conviction and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement wants to take your green card away? For lawful permanent residents who have committed a crime, Cancellation of Removal for Lawful Permanent Residents may be an avenue to retain their status.
This process has eligibility requirements and requires clear proof of rehabilitation and positive equities for the applicant. Our lawyers will interview you in regard to your history and relationships, and help document the steps you already have taken toward rehabilitation. Our success in this area is primarily due to being able to show that the client is genuinely remorseful, understands the impact of their action on their families and is deserving of a second chance.
