What are the other options for deportation relief?
- Asylum: In addition to cancellation of removal, you may be able to have a deportation order withheld if you seek asylum or relief under convention of torture. In order to be eligible for this form of relief, you must show that you have reason to fear returning to your home country for one of the five reasons accepted for asylum.
- Waiver: You may also be eligible for a waiver if you meet certain requirements. Typically, a waiver is appropriate if you have been convicted of a crime, have remained in the U.S. beyond your visa expiration date, or have been previously deported or removed.
- Voluntary Departure You may also find relief through voluntary departure, whether before removal proceedings have been completed or after they are finished.
