Criminal Law & Immigration Status

If you are not a United States citizen living in America, any contact you have with law enforcement may affect your immigration status.  Arrests can hurt your chances of getting permanent residence, a work or student visa, or citizenship.

Being found guilty of a criminal crime can have serious consequences.

These can include:

  • Deportation
  • Citizenship Denied
  • Permanent Residence Denied
  • You may be held in detention
  • You may be unable to return to the United States for a set number of years
  • You may be permanently banned from returning to the United States
