The many types of immigration relief program
If you are facing deportation or some other type of problem as it relates to your immigration status, it’s important to learn more about your legal rights.
There is more than one type of immigration relief program, including but not necessarily limited to the following:
- Asylum. Depending on how long you have been in the United States and the circumstances of your case, you may qualify for asylum.
- Withholding of removal. If you have fears of returning to your country of origin because of a risk to your life, this program could be right for you.
- Cancellation of removal. If an undocumented immigrant has been in the United States for at least 10 years, this person may qualify to remain in the country through cancellation of removal.
- Special immigrant juvenile status. Any immigrant child who has been abandoned, abused or neglected may qualify for this relief program.
