24 year old who entered the United States with his mother and sister when he was 13 years old. He had applied for adjustment of status to lawful permanent resident but was denied. His mother, a lawful permanent resident, is terminally ill and is currently receiving hospital treatment. The client was placed in removal proceedings and we submitted an application for cancellation of removal for non-permanent residents based on extreme and exceptionally unusual hardship to his mother if he were to be deported from the United States. After a full hearing before an Immigration Judge, an Order was entered granting permanent residency to our client. He will now be able to remain in the United States to help care for his ailing mother. The trial attorney from the Office of Chief Counsel did not reserve appeal so this is a final order.
Cancellation of Removal Granted!
