Being accused of committing a crime is never an enjoyable experience. If you’re accused, it can create numerous issues with your immigration status. Whether you have not applied for status or a status is pending, criminal accusations can have a huge impact on you. These criminal accusations and charges can lead to an ICE agent holding the accused, which then leads to further court proceedings that are generally dragged out and expensive. Furthermore, accusations of criminal activity can seriously affect an individual’s immigration related goals.
Immigrants and attorneys must be conscious of the possible consequences of criminal activity and immigration. In fact, any criminal defense attorney is now required to disclose potential immigration related consequences regarding the charges. Potential plea bargains might have detrimental impact on an individual’s future immigration status. For any questions, we recommend that you speak to our team of professionals.
