Withholding of Removal
Immigration Lawyer, Serving New York Metro Region
Cancellation / withholding of removal offers immigration relief to individuals
who are at risk of deportation. If you qualify for withholding of removal,
the United States government is prohibited from removing you to a country
where your life or freedom is threatened. While this process is similar
to asylum, in that you must be part of a protected group, it is harder
to qualify for. There is a high standard of evidence and you must prove
that you are a refugee and that there is a clear probability of persecution
by a government or other group upon your return. At
Kapoor Law Firm, our immigration attorney can help determine your eligibility and walk
you through the process, step-by-step.
If you are able to show evidence of past persecution, it is probable that
you would face this same persecution in the future. Unlike asylum, withholding
of removal is mandatory. This means that even if there are discretionary
factors, such as conviction of non-serious crimes, they are not deemed
relevant to your case.
The only factors that can prevent you from applying for withholding of
- Persecution of others
- Past convictions of serious crimes
- Commission of a serious nonpolitical crime in another country
How am I protected if granted withholding of removal?
If your application for withholding of removal is granted, you will be
given relief that is narrower than asylum. While you will not be removed
to a country where you face persecution, you can still be removed to another
country that is considered to be safe. Also, withholding of removal is
person-specific, and other family members such as your spouse and children
will not automatically be granted the same status simply because you have.
You also are not allowed to travel outside of the United States, or you
will not be able to return. Please keep in mind that if circumstances
in your country change, the government can terminate your withholding
of removal at their discretion.
