Cancellation of Removal

Never go into a Courtroom Alone!

The experienced Wisconsin immigration attorneys at Kaehne, Cottle, Pasquale & Associates, S.C. handle a wide variety of cases, including cancellation of removal. Contact us now for a free consultation, or keep reading to learn more.

What is cancellation of removal, and how can you get a cancellation?

If you have been living in the United States without any legal status and are placed into removal proceedings, you may be able to apply for cancellation of removal (deportation), which will allow you to stay in the country or the foreseeable future. In order to qualify for cancellation of removal, you must be able to show that all of the following are true:

  • You have been living in the United States for the last 10 years;
  • Your qualifying relatives who are either United States citizens or lawful permanent residents would experience exceptional and extremely unusual hardship if you were removed from the United States;
  • You have good moral character; and
  • You have not violated certain laws or been convicted of certain crimes.

How can an immigration lawyer help with cancellations of removal?

Showing that all of the above-listed factors are true can be a challenge.  An experienced immigration attorney will be able to gather the information and documents needed for presenting a good case.  If you were ever convicted of a crime, an attorney will be able to help you make the legal argument that the conviction does not keep you from being eligible for cancellation of removal.

A grant of cancellation of removal is discretionary, which means that the immigration judge decides whether you are removed anyway.  Because the immigration judge can use discretion, it is extremely important that the judge finds you to be both honest and sincere.  Having an experienced immigration attorney prepare and present your case can make the difference between being allowed to legally remain in the United States and being removed.  Only 4,000 cancellation of removals can be granted each year so it is exceptionally important that you are able to present a strong case.

Beyond Expectations

My husband had never been in any legal trouble before and we didn’t know what to do or what the process was. Attorney Kaehne was very upfront and willing to explain every step of the way. My husband can be very skeptical when it comes to trusting people with his best interest, but Attorney Kaehne always remained professional and helpful. My husband was facing the possibility of years in prison and Attorney Kaehne was able to get the matter dismissed. He will always be our first choice!

The Outcome was Far Better than I Expected

Attorney Kaehne always communicated with me on what was going on and his plans for future court appearances. The outcome of the case was far more better than I expected and am really pleased that Chad did what he did to get this issue resolved.

Not Guilty Verdict

Attorney Corey Mehlos gave my case the upmost attention. He worked very hard and many long hours on it. I was impressed with his dedication and his understanding to my wishes. Not Guilty verdict at my jury trial. I highly recommend him.
