Cancellation of Removal granted to Client from Central America based on Child’s Developmental Deficits
The Department of Homeland Security attempted to deport a man from Central America who had been residing in the United States over a decade after having entered the United States without inspection. Attorney Cohen successfully litigated his case in front of the Miami Immigration Court, presenting expert medical and psychological evidence relating to client’s U.S. Citizen child’s developmental deficits and behavioral problems. After hearing the evidence the Immigration Judge granted client permanent resident status under a section of the Immigration and Nationality Act called “cancellation of removal.” The Immigration Judge found that Attorney Cohen had established that his client’s child would suffer exceptional and extremely unusual hardship were his father to be deported from the United States. DHS did not appeal the decision.
