New York Child Abuse Defense Attorney

Child Abuse & Deportation Defense for Immigrants

As it is considered a crime of moral turpitude, a child abuse conviction can result in deportation for non-U.S. citizens. This applies for crimes of moral turpitude committed within five years after entry to the United States and which result in a prison sentence of one year or more. Additionally, being convicted of two such crimes not related to a single scheme of criminal misconduct can result in deportation, regardless of when the crimes were committed or the sentence imposed.

It is therefore imperative that you contact a New York deportation defense lawyer immediately if you are facing child abuse charges. Even if you have only been accused of this crime, don't wait to seek legal advice. The earlier your legal counsel can address your case, the greater the opportunities to take the needed actions to defend your rights and avoid the effect of conviction on your immigration status. This may be achieved by such methods as a reduction and removal of criminal charges, a skilled defense resulting in acquittal, an appeal or a motion to vacate a conviction, plea or sentence.

We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Rockland County and Westchester County.
