Criminal Charges and Your Immigration Status

There are many misconceptions about how a criminal charge can affect your immigration status. If this is a concern for you, it is important to know that even if you get a deferred judgement for your criminal charge, it is still considered a conviction for immigration. That is why it is critical to hire an attorney who has a thorough understanding of both criminal and immigration law. This could mean the difference between you remaining in the U.S. or being deported, because your criminal record can directly affect your immigration status! Attorney Ruth Gorman has 25 years under her belt navigating these complexities. Don’t hesitate to call us today!
