Help!!! Cancellation of Removal

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

I just received NTA(Notice to Appear) for using fraud immigration document to obtain driver license.

I know I made a terrible mistake and I am really really regretting it.

I am going to hire attorney who can help me with the case but one thing I found out was there was something called "Cancellation of Removal"

I meet all the requirements such as I've been in this country at least 10 years, good moral character, I pay taxes, but one thing that I do not qualify is extreme hardship for my US Citizen child, parent or spouse.

But the thing is that I live with my grandparent who are US Citizens and my grandfather just passed away. Andnow I live with my grandmother and I am fully supporting her financially and other things like getting her to the hospital, grocery, and every little thing she needs.

So i am wondering, even though my grandmother is not immediate relative, if I could prove that I am fully supporting her and it would be very hard for her if I removed from the states, will I have any chance to stand.

Any comment would be appreciated.

I am very very regretting about what I did in the past. Other than that I have no criminal history nor DUI or any kind.

Please help!

Unfortunately, that's not likely. For CoR as a non-LPR, you are required to show that your removal would cause exceptional hardship to your US citizen or LPR spouse, parent, or child. Without such a qualifying relationship then any CoR petition you file is unlikely to be granted.

You should consult with an experienced immigration lawyer to see if there are any other options, but I'd be surprised if there was anything they could do. Immigration document fraud is a crime, and that's why they are going after you for it.

They are really serious when it comes to any kind of fraud or misrepresentation. I too suggest that you need to consult an immigration attorney, a very good one. What did you use that constituted the fraud, if you don't mind my asking?

This does not constitute legal advice.
