Legal Relief for Permanent Residents in Threat of Deportation

Even if you have a legal status in the United States as a Lawful Permanent Resident, you can still be removed from the United States. If you are a Green Card holder and find yourself in danger of being deported or removed from the country, the removal defense lawyers at Maria Jones Law Firm can seek a legal remedy for you known as Cancellation of Removal.

You must currently be in deportation proceedings in front of an immigration Judge, for us to file an application for a Cancellation of Removal on your behalf. If the immigration judge approves your application, you may keep your lawful Permanent Resident status and remain in the country.

To qualify, you must:

Be a lawful Permanent Resident (Green Card holder) for at last 5 years up to the time your application is filed
Have lived in the U.S. continuously for 7 years or more after being lawfully admitted to the country, and before you received a Notice to Appear at the removal proceeding
Have not been convicted of an aggravated felony

During your hearing, we will present documentation to the Judge that demonstrates your eligibility for Cancellation of Removal. The judge has the discretion to weigh any past criminal offenses against other factors, such as your good standing in the community, service in the armed forces, consistent record of paying taxes, education, proof of rehabilitation, or solid family and business ties.
