Domestic Violence Immigration Lawyer NYC

New York Domestic Violence & Immigration Laws

Domestic violence is a wide-spread occurrence in New York, and the police are on the alert to intervene on the behalf of victims. Those who are found guilty of crimes involving domestic violence are subjected to stiff penalties, such as jail time and fines. A typical sentence will feature a term of probation, with requirements such as counseling and education, as well as having to live with a restraining order or protective order. Failure to abide by the order can result in new criminal charges and further punishment, meaning that if you are convicted, you may have to live with the consequences for years to come.

When an immigrant who is living in the country on a green card for employment or in order to be near family is arrested on a charge such as domestic violence, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement may get involved and move for a criminal deportation. Many domestic violence crimes, such as aggravated harassment, child abuse and menacing, are crimes of moral turpitude, which are not tolerated in the immigrant population. An arrest of this nature can be especially harmful if you have been working to attain citizenship, as you no longer will be able to satisfy the requirement for proof of being a person of good moral character. If you have been charged with any form of domestic violence, you need to meet with a seasoned New York immigration lawyer who can inform you of your options in fighting the case and constructing a deportation-proof result.
