NACARA stands for the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act, which is a law which was enacted to help those who qualify to obtain legal permanent residence. If you need legal help understanding this law and its requirements and how it relates to cancellation of removal, I urge you to contact me at my offices for a consultation. As a knowledgeable lawyer with years of experience, I can help you apply for relief under the requirements of this law.
Those who are eligible to apply for relief under NACARA cannot have been convicted of an aggravated felony and must fall under specific categories by date. These include Guatemalans, Salvadorans, nationals of former Soviet bloc countries such as Russia, Estonia, Latvia or Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, East Germany, Poland, Romania, Yugoslavia, or Lithuania, a qualified family member of one of the above groups, or a spouse or child of members. The requirements under NACARA are very specific.
If you wish to find out if you qualify for suspension of deportation or special rule cancellation of removal under NACARA, you should consult with me. First, it must be determined whether you are eligible for relief under NACARA. Beyond this, you must prove that you have resided in the U.S. on a continuous basis for a specific number of years, are of good moral character, that your deportation would cause extreme hardship to you, your spouse, children, or parents who are permanent residents or U.S. citizens, and that you deserve a favorable result.
You will have the burden of proving that you meet the necessary requirements to apply for relief. In order to present the most effective case, it is in your best interests to get professional legal help from an experienced Houston immigration lawyer. My legal team can provide specific and comprehensive legal assistance with this matter.
