Cancellation of Removal
Cancellation of Removal is available to certain long term permanent residents

of certain crimes involving moral turpitude, drug offenses, and domestic
violence or child abuse crimes. To qualify for this waiver you must have:
- Resided in the U.S. as a permanent resident for 5 years; and
- Lived in the U.S. continuously for 7 years in any lawful status
As a legal resident, you must present strong and persuasive reasons as

If you have a criminal record, you must discuss this matter thoroughly
with your attorney.
