Eligibility for Cancellation of Removal for Non-Permanent Residents
As a non-permanent resident you must prove the following to qualify for cancellation of removal:
- You have continuously maintained a physical presence in the U.S. for at least 10 years prior to receiving a notice to appear.
- You have been a person of good moral character during your entire time in the U.S.
- You have not been convicted of an aggravated felony in the U.S.
- Your removal would result in exceptional and extreme hardship to your U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (LPR) spouse, parent or child.
- You deserve to win your case as a matter of discretion.
When you are a non-permanent resident, the burden of proof is on you. Your eligibility and winning your case depend on 100 percent factual and accurate application and evidentiary documentation along with the immigration judge's sole discretion on whether you deserve to win your case or not.
Eligibility also applies to battered spouses, abused children and parents of abused children. Under the provisions of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), abuse need not have taken place in the U.S.
Additionally, service members of the U.S. Armed Forces who have been on active duty for at least 24 months do not have to meet continuous physical presence in the U.S. requirements, but other conditions do apply.
