CRIMINAL DEFENSE FOR NON-US CITIZENS
Atlanta Criminal Defense and Immigration Lawyer
We know that a criminal conviction can change the life of anyone, but especially those who are not U.S. citizens. Even minor convictions can lead to deportation for immigrants living in the United States. Because of these possible consequences, it is important to have an attorney who understands the immigration process and can help immigrants facing criminal charges.
Who is at risk of being deported because of criminal convictions?
Any non-citizen resident who has been convicted of a felony may be deported from the United States. Non-citizens include undocumented immigrants, foreign nationals, and green card holders. A felony is any crime that is punishable by more than one year in jail or prison.
What about misdemeanors?
Misdemeanors are less serious crimes, but they can still lead to deportation for immigrants. A single DUI conviction, for example, is classified as a misdemeanor and may result in removal from the United States.
I’m an immigrant with a criminal record. What can I do?
If you are facing criminal charges, it is important to seek the right legal help immediately. In some cases, it may be possible to avoid a conviction altogether. In other cases, post-conviction relief may be an option. Criminal defense attorneys who are uninformed of the possible immigration implications for their non-U.S. citizen clients may unintentionally worsen the situation by recommending a plea that will hurt your situation. That is why you need the knowledge, advise, and expertise of a Georgia immigration and criminal defense lawyer. We are your one stop shop.
