Removal and Relief
Potential forms of relief from a removal or deportation action by the government include: Asylum, Withholding of Removal, relief under the Convention Against Torture (CAT), Cancellation of Removal, Temporary Protected Status, Cancellation of Removal under the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act (NACARA), and Voluntary Departure.
Some forms of relief are based on an individual’s fear of persecution, harm, or torture in his/her native country: Asylum, Withholding of Removal, and relief under the Convention Against Torture (CAT). Other forms of relief are based on a number of different factors, e.g. exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to the alien’s U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) spouse. If you are facing potential removal or deportation, you should consult with an immigration attorney knowledgeable in Removal and Relief issues right away.
