Will Criminal Charges Affect My Immigration Status?

People from all over the world come to the United States for opportunity, freedom and family, but anyone who has been through (or watched a loved one go through) the immigration process knows it is not easy. A criminal conviction can have uniquely harsh consequences for people who are not U.S. citizens.

Before accepting any plea deal offered by the prosecution, and ideally before speaking with law enforcement, it is important to speak with a criminal defense attorney who is also knowledgeable about immigration policy.

A criminal conviction typically affects an individual’s immigration status in one of two ways: inadmissibility or removability. Inadmissibility means that a person may not gain admission to the United States, which means they may be denied a green card or prohibited from reentering the country if they leave. Removability, sometimes called “deportability,” means that individuals who are in the country legally may become subject to removal or deportation.
