Criminal Issues Require Precise Immigration Advice

If you are not a U.S. citizen, and you find yourself charged with a crime, you need precise immigration advice.  Immigration advice can be complicated, as there are seemingly inconsistencies within the immigration law itself, as well as inconsistencies between U.S. immigration law and state criminal law. 

How a criminal conviction affects eligibility for immigration benefits depends on the benefits sought.  Asylum, Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals all have their own different rules.  Plus all of these rules differ from whether the crime makes an alien inadmissible or deportable.

I go into further detail in this article.

For precise immigration advice on a criminal issue, consult with a knowledgeable immigration lawyer.
