In this Cancellation of Removal video, Carl Shusterman, a former INS Attorney (1976-82) whose law firm has assisted thousands of persons across the U.S. in becoming permanent residents for nearly 30 years, explains the basics of applying for cancellation of removal for a non-permanent resident.
Persons in removal proceedings before an Immigration Judge may apply for “Cancellation of Removal” if they have been physically present in the US for 10 years prior to being placed in removal proceedings, they are persons of good moral character, and their deportation would result in “exceptional and extremely unusual hardship” to their spouses, parents or children who are either US citizens or permanent residents.
Go to a Law Firm which is Professional and Knowledgeable
“Very professional law firm. We had a difficult issue and Mr. Shusterman’s office got right onto the case and resolved the issue with USCIS. Because of their efforts, me and my family were able to get our Legal Permanent Residency card. My suggestion to those trying to obtain employment based card. Don’t look for money saving attorney. They will cost you lot more in long run. Go to a law firm which is professional and knowledgeable. It pays in the long term.”

The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) has published the following decisions defining what constitutes exceptional and extreme unusual hardship in cancellation of removal cases:
In addition, the law prevents Immigration Judges from granting cancellation of removal to more than 4,000 persons per fiscal year (October 1 – September 30). Once a person applies for cancellation of removal, he/she may also obtain an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).
We hope that our Cancellation of Removal video answers many of your questions about the process.
