Cancellation of Removal for Lawful Permanent Residents
Houston Immigration Attorney
"Removal" is another word for "deportation," and attorney Mana Yegani can help you apply for cancellation of removal. Before applying for cancellation of removal, it is critical that you speak with an experienced immigration lawyer.
This is a risky legal situation, and you get one shot at success. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has found reason (grounds) for removability, and only an immigration judge can cancel removal/deportation. If your cancelation request (Form EOIR-42A) is approved, Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) status will be reinstated, giving you a second chance to remain in the United States. Proper documentary evidence must be filed within a certain deadline with the court and USCIS. A merits hearing must be conducted in the presence of an Immigration Judge in Immigration Court.

If you or a loved one is considering applying for cancellation of removal as an LPR, you need to discuss the grounds for removability and the legal process that follows the notice to appear immediately. The burden is on you to prove you qualify for cancellation of removal, and there are severe civil penalties if any of your documentation is found to be falsified or inaccurate.
Experienced legal representation is a must. Contact The Law Office of Mana Yegani at our number (832) 981-2170.
Qualifying for Cancellation of Removal for Lawful Permanent Residents
A Legal Permanent Resident may receive a Notice To Appear. That means they need to appear in Immigration Court on a specific date and time. Generally, a Notice To Appear is filed by the Department of Homeland Security for Permanent Residents with certain criminal convictions.
You have been classified as inadmissible and/or deportable/removable, but you may qualify for cancellation of removal if:
- You have been a Lawful Permanent Resident for not less than five years prior to receiving a notice to appear or committing a crime.
- You have lived continuously in the U.S. for not less than seven years under any immigration status prior to receiving a notice to appear or committing a crime.
- You have not been convicted of an aggravated felony crime.
