Cancelation of Removal. Is a type of relief from removal allowed to permanent residents and non-legal permanent residents. Different requirements apply for permanent residents and non-legal permanent residents. Permanent residents are required to: 1) have resided continuously for seven years in us after lawful admission; 2) been a lawful permanent resident for at least five years; 3) has not been convict of aggravated felony.
For non-permanent residents, the requirements are: 1) Continuous physical presence in US for 10 years; 2) good moral character; 3) exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to alien spouse, parent, or child, who is a citizen of US or an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence.
Stay of Removal. A stay of removal is an order directly the Department of Homeland Security to refrain from removing an immigrant from the United States. It can be granted from the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), from a Federal Court, or from ICE through an administrative I-246 stay of removal. A stay of removal is automatically granted when a timely appeal to the BIA is filed against an immigration judge’s decision. Similarly, if a revision of removal is pending before the Courts of Appeals, the court may issue to stay removal while the case is pending. In the cases of request of stay of removal before ICE, evidence supporting the request should accompany the request.
Withholding of Removal. Is a special type of order issued by an immigration judge to a person who demonstrates more than a 50% chance that they will be persecuted in their home country on account of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.
Only an immigration judge hearing a case for someone in removal proceedings can grant withholding of removal.
