Criminal Law & Immigration
If you are seeking to immigrate to the U.S., you must have a clean record. Even if you do earn residency, your status could be stripped and you could be deported for committing certain crimes, such as drug offenses, sexual assault, money laundering, alien smuggling, firearms conviction, theft/robbery, fraud, domestic violence and murder/manslaughter. With our help, you may be able to avoid immigration complications or deportation if you have a past criminal conviction.
Diplomatic visas are for heads of state, royal families, ambassadors, cabinet ministers, members of parliament, governors, employees of foreign ministries and other high ranking government officials. For some diplomats, such as NATO employees, it is difficult to obtain a diplomatic visa when requesting a security opinion from the U.S. before issuance of the visa. An immigration attorney gives you the best chance at securing a visa.
A guilty plea can have severe consequences on your immigration status; you can face indefinite unemployment, deportation, or the inability to naturalize and become a U.S. citizen. However, a post-conviction relief attorney can evaluate your case and explore the chances of having your plea or judgement vacated.
U-Visa: Victims of a Crime
If you’re a victim of a certain crime, you and your immediate family may be eligible for a U-visa. This kind of visa allows you to live and work legally in the United States for four years. Once three years pass, you can apply for a green card, which can result in U.S. citizenship.
In order to be eligible for a U-visa, you must meet the following requirements:
- Be a victim of a crime in the U.S.;
- Be physically or emotionally injured by the crime;
- Cooperate with law enforcement; and
- The agency you cooperate with must be willing to corroborate your cooperation
