Criminal Defense And Federal Immigration Offense Issues
If you are a national of another country and are charged with a criminal offense, even a misdemeanor that could be punished by up to one year in jail, it is important to understand the possible consequences as they relate to your status in this country. Prior convictions can be used by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to remove individuals from the United States. In addition, a criminal conviction could result in denial of citizenship and other immigration benefits. Following an arrest, a background check is conducted.
If the federal immigration office uncovers prior immigration violations such as illegal re-entry after deportation, alien smuggling, identity theft, unlawful entry or remaining in the U.S., document trafficking or other criminal activities, the consequences become more severe. Securing the services of the attorneys at Monzón, Guerra & Chipman may be the most important step you take – we can make a significant difference in your case.
Attorney Carlos A. Monzón’s work in criminal defense and immigration law contributed to a significant change in Nebraska law – the courts must now advise individuals charged with criminal behavior of the consequences as they apply to deportation, removal and loss of immigration benefits such as denial of citizenship applications.
