I am in deportation proceedings. I have been in the country for 9 years. Last time I was in court the lawyer on the other side spoke to me outside the court room. She asked me if I wanted wait one year to file for Cancellation of Removal. I read about this and it seems that I qualify -- sick LPR wife would be homeless if I were to leave the US.
I asked a lawyer who told me that because I had only been in the country for 9 years when my case began I would not be eligible. Who is correct?
