Felony Charges And Immigration Status

Felony Charges Can Impact Your Immigration Status

Felony criminal charges are serious and can put your immigration status at risk. Even if you are acquitted of a felony charge, the government may still use the fact that you were charged as the basis for a removal proceeding. That is why it is important to seek help from a lawyer with extensive experience in immigration law.

At the law firm of , our attorneys have been handling both immigration and criminal defense matters for more than 20 years. We will work hard to help protect your rights against criminal charges and to protect your status during removal proceedings.

Charges That May Lead To Deportation

The Immigration and Nationality Act considers a broad range of charges to be “aggravated felonies.” This list is much longer than what is considered a felony crime in the criminal law system and includes charges such as:

  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual abuse of a minor
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Money laundering
  • Tax evasion or tax fraud
  • Any crime that is punishable by more than one year

Even if you possess a green card, you may still be deported if you are charged with an aggravated felony. We understand what is at stake, which is why we work hard for all people who are facing criminal law and immigration issues.
