If you have been living in the United States for a long period of time without any immigration status or have entered the country without inspection, there is a way for you to stay without fear of deportation or removal. However, the requirements for cancellation of removal are immensely difficult to meet, which is why it is imperative to obtain the qualified legal services of a skilled and reliable immigration attorney.
At Kanu & Associates, P.C., we are committed to helping non-permanent residents in Phoenix, AZ and the surrounding areas pursue the relief they desire. With more than 15 years of experience, the immigrants’ lawyer has a thorough understanding of U.S. immigration laws to help you navigate through the possible complexities of your case.
Cancellation of removal is a form of relief from deportation or removal, meaning that you can only apply for this if you have a deportation or removal case pending before an immigration judge. However, if you do not have a court appearance date, you cannot apply for cancellation of removal.
In addition, if you have already appeared in court and your case is now closed due to a final order of deportation or removal from an immigration judge, you cannot apply for cancellation of removal unless you could convince the court to grant a motion to reopen your case.
The immigrants’ attorney at Kanu & Associates understands what it takes to obtain the outcome you desire. If you have an upcoming hearing in court before an immigration judge and you don’t have a green card or permanent resident status, cancellation of removal may protect you from deportation.
