Being placed in removal proceedings is a terrifying experience for many because of the prospect of being deported if you cannot succeed in defending against the removal. At Villarrubia & Rosenberger, P.C., we have experienced deportation attorneys who help clients in the Indianapolis area and throughout the state to successfully defend against deportation.
The first thing you want to do when you or a loved one has been placed in deportation or removal proceedings is to make sure you have an experienced and skilled deportation and removal attorney on your side. Never assume that deportation is inevitable, as there may be defenses that can allow you to remain in the United States, including a possible cancellation of removal.
Cancellation of removal is one of the immigration benefits one can obtain as a defense against removal/deportation. Removal or Deportation Proceedings give a non-citizen the right to a hearing and to present defenses before a judge in order to remain in the United States. No decision will be made until you have an opportunity to be heard (unless you do not appear to your hearing). Being in removal or deportation proceedings is not having an order of removal or deportation.
As a defense in removal proceedings, green card holders and non-green card holders may apply before an immigration judge to stop their deportation and remain or become lawful permanent residents (green card holders).
Under U.S. immigration law, one may be eligible to obtain a cancellation of removal depending on whether they are a green card holder or a non-green card holder. Green card holders must show that they:
Non-green card holders must show that they:
Application for cancellation of removal is made in immigration court before the immigration judge assigned to hear the case. The immigration judge has the discretion to approve or deny the cancellation application. This discretion means that even when someone is eligible to apply for cancellation of removal, the immigration judge will consider all evidence and testimony to decide whether to approve your case.
This is one of the reasons why one must have an experienced deportation lawyer because they will know exactly how to present the cancellation of removal application and case before a particular immigration judge to get approval whenever possible.
