Cancellation of Removal is an immigration benefit that allows permanent residents or non-residents of the United States to receive or maintain their green cards. If you have been living in the U.S. without legal status for over 10 years but have been placed into removal proceedings, you may be eligible for a “EOIR-42B Non-LPR Cancellation of Removal,” which can lead to a Green Card. To qualify for EOIR-42B, the applicant must show a high level of hardship to their U.S. citizen or green card holder spouse, parent, or child. Certain abused spouses may also qualify for cancellation of removal, even if they have not resided in the U.S. for less than 10 years.
You cannot file for EOIR-42B or A outside the immigration courts. This benefit is only available in immigration courts, and an immigration judge must approve such an application. Our office focuses on cancellation of removal and deportation defense and has 30 years of experience in applying and documenting EOIR-42B and EOIR-42A applications.
