- It depends. If you were a legal permanent resident, which we call LPRs, and you’ve been convicted of certain crimes, you can be deportable.
- What’s important to remember is that some felonies make you deportable, some felonies don’t. Some misdemeanors make you deportable and some misdemeanors don’t.
- To be eligible for cancellation of removal for a legal permanent resident, you have to show that you entered the United States at least seven years ago, prior to the violation date of the deportable offence.
- You have to show that you have had a Green Card for at least five years. Then you also have to show, lastly, that your deportation would be a hardship to you or to your family. That last question is really a decision for the judge to make.
