Abstract

This practice advisory provides strategies to overcome the aggravated felony bar to cancellation of removal. This issue is relevant for clients who were not subject to removal for an aggravated felony conviction, but may be ineligible for relief based on the aggravated felony bar. The advisory also provides guidance for noncitizens applying for discretionary relief, who may be subject to mandatory grounds of denial. The information in this advisory is not legal advice and does not substitute for individual advice supplied by a lawyer familiar with a client’s case. Readers are advised to check for new cases and legal developments.
