This webinar will cover the law governing cancellation of removal for non-permanent residents under INA § 240A(b)(1), and battered spouse/VAWA cancellation of removal under INA § 240A(b)(2). We will review current case law and practical tips to maximize your client’s chances of winning in Immigration Court. Topics to be covered include: calculating physical presence and the stop-time rule, analyzing and avoiding the criminal bars, establishing good moral character, proving exceptional and extremely unusual hardship, as well as how physical presence, hardship and the bars differ for VAWA cancellation cases.
