Being arrested and convicted of a crime can have serious consequences for an immigrant. Depending on the type of allegations raised, immediate efforts at deportation may take place. Avoiding this result is critical, especially if you have family in the country. Our team of criminal defense attorneys understands the importance of keeping your job, your home, and your family and can help you sort through the issues of your case that also impact residency.

The INS will initiate an investigation and seek to deport a non-resident for the following types of charges:

  • Crimes of moral turpitude.
  • Drug crimes.
  • Firearms possession or sales.
  • Domestic violence.
  • Treason, or an act of aggression against the United States.

A successful conclusion to the criminal charges against you will also help aid your efforts to avoid deportation. Another popular strategy when fighting to stay in the country includes political asylum, which means you fear harm if you are forced to return to your home country. We can help with the criminal case, and give you guidance on how to best handle any deportation issues that have arisen as a result of being arrested. Call one of our knowledgeable attorneys today to discuss the specific facts of your matter.
