Criminal Conviction and Your Immigration Status
NY Immigration Attorneys - 100 Years' Combined Experience
Being convicted of a criminal offense can have severe consequences in relation
to your immigrant status. United States law is very strict regarding which
offenses can result in deportation or exclusion from the U.S. and in many
cases the court has no discretion on whether or not this will be part
of the penalty for conviction.
This may be the case despite mitigating circumstances of the crime for
which you were convicted or the effect deportation would have on your
family. It is vital you are represented by an experienced
New York City immigration lawyer, who can fight for you when your future is on the line.
