If you are a green card holder that the government is trying to deport, you may apply to the Immigration Judge for Cancellation of Removal using form EOIR-42B (plus supporting documents) if you meet each of the following conditions:
1.You have been a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. for at least five years;
2.You have resided continuously in the U.S. for a minimum of seven years after being admitted to the U.S. in any status (prior to the institution of removal proceedings);
3.You have not been convicted of an aggravated felony;
4.You are not inadmissible from the U.S. on security grounds.
In order to be granted cancellation of removal, you must be able to convince the Immigration Judge that the positive factors in your case outweigh the negative factors.

When you say you were denied the waiver, are you referring to the I-751 or something else? If you are in immigration court, you need to consult an immigration attorney. You should not represent yourself in immigration court. Bad idea.
Consult an immigration attorney ASAP!
