Cancellation of removal under the Violence Against Women Act (“VAWA”) is a generous though often overlooked form of relief for abused noncitizens faced with removal proceedings. VAWA cancellation often benefits abused spouses and sons and daughters even when VAWA self-petitioning and adjustment is no longer possible due to missed deadlines and “age-outs.” This webinar will discuss the qualifying relationships necessary for relief, the basic eligibility requirements for VAWA cancellation, as well as the statutory and regulatory bars to cancellation that are applicable. We will also compare and contrast eligibility for VAWA cancellation with VAWA self-petitions and nonLPR cancellation.
