Criminal Convictions Leading to Deportation or Removal
A conviction for specific crimes can be the fastest way to get deported. Convictions that commonly lead the government to start removal proceedings include assault, gun-possession, or domestic violence. However, with proper advice before you plead in criminal court, and competent representation in immigration court, in many cases removal and immigration detention can be avoided. If you or someone you love has been charged with or convicted of a crime, it is advisable to consult with an immigration and criminal legal professional as soon as possible. Failing to do so can lead to detention without bond and removal within a few months of your arrest and conviction. At the Law Office of Michael Boyle, we are experienced with handling cases involving immigration and criminal convictions and will work with you and your criminal attorney to manage your case carefully to minimize your risk of being deported.
If you have been charged with a crime, our immigration attorneys can provide you and your criminal attorney with reliable advice and experienced advocacy to minimize the potential for deportation. If you or a loved one faces arrest, you need competent help immediately, before you enter a plea. Contact us today for an assessment of your case.
Based on our experience, research, and strategy, we may be able to minimize or avoid the immigration consequences of a criminal conviction. We understand the interplay of criminal and immigration law and can often plan a strategy to resolve your case in a way that avoids deportation.
Violent crimes: If you have been charged with a violent crime including assault, gun crimes, or sexual assault, you run a high risk of deportation. However, in many cases alternative pleas or challenges to removability in immigration court, federal court or before the Board of Immigration Appeals can avoid removal. Our attorneys are experienced with the complexities of the immigration consequences of criminal convictions and will work to best defend you in the criminal and the deportation processes.
Appeals: Our attorneys have ample experience presenting appeals at the Board of Immigration Appeals and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. This is a complex area where experience is critical.
