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.

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

Certain criminal convictions, such as an aggravated felony, multiple misdemeanors, or crimes of moral turpitude, can have numerous adverse immigration effects, including:

  • Cancellation of permanent residency and deportation
  • Inability to achieve suspension or cancellation of removal
  • Ineligibility for permanent residency or naturalization
  • Refusal of recognized good moral character - a requirement for citizenship and immigration court relief
  • Denial of asylum
  • Suspension of your right to voluntary departure
  • Permanent exclusion from the United States
