You may be eligible to Stop Deportation proceedings and Cancellation of Removal. To be eligible for Cancellation of Removal, you must meet the following requirements:
If the Immigration Judge believes that the alien has satisfied these three requirements based upon a review of the evidence, then the Immigration Judge may cancel the removal proceedings and grant the alien Lawful Permanent Residence in the United States. While your immigration proceedings are ongoing, you are eligible to file for a work permit with USCIS giving you lawful permission to work in the United States.
Motion Requesting the Favorable Exercise of Prosecutorial Discretion
As an alternative to proceeding with Cancellation of Removal or deportation defense, we can assist you in requesting the favorable exercise of prosecutorial discretion from the Office of the Chief Counsel (OCC). The granting of the Prosecutorial Discretion motion means that the OCC will no longer prosecute your removal or deportation proceedings in Immigration Court. Depending on certain factors, you may be eligible to apply for a work permit giving you lawful permission to work in the United States.
We also have extensive experience representing our clients before Immigration Court, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) in the following matters:

You may be eligible for asylum in the United States if you were the subject of persecution or have a “well-founded fear of persecution” in your home country. Immigration law does not define persecution, but courts have held that persecution based on the following categories makes an alien eligible for asylum.
To apply for asylum, the alien must be present in the United States. It does not matter if the alien unlawfully entered the United States or came to the United States legally. If you believe that you may be eligible for asylum because you suffered persecution in your home country, contact our office today to meet with an attorney to review your case. It is important to timely file any asylum applications with USCIS or the Immigration Court to preserve your eligibility or otherwise you may forfeit any asylum claim that you may have. If your asylum application is approved, you may apply for Lawful Permanent Residence after one year.
