In Immigration cases certain crimes and convictions committed by a non-US citizen can result in deportation in addition to long periods of incarceration and probation or parole. citizenship Immigration lawyers are responsible for representing those facing criminal charges, which may result in deportation. Immigration lawyers have the ability to defend ones case and prevent them from being deported. They may also provide legal advice regarding things such as how to obtain a visa. However, criminal lawyers like those at the Law Office of Kelly and Conte represent "criminal cases" of those with and without legal documentation in the United States. Criminal charges that can lead to deportation include crimes such as aggravated felonies, drug and gun related crimes, and crimes of domestic violence. Here at Kelly and Conte, several of our clients have retained us for such crimes. Title 18 defines these particular crimes and list definitions of each. Our website also lists small descriptions of related crimes under the "categories" section.
Immigration consequences and the effects of a conviction are some of the most important aspects of criminal cases. In the immigration setting, any alien who is charged with the commission of a crime risks negative impact on his immigration status. It is important to contact an attorney who cannot only help you navigate the criminal charges, but also help you or your loved one understand any immigration consequences for the criminal charges.
