Immigration law is especially harsh to individuals who have been convicted of certain crimes. As a non-immigrant or permanent resident, certain convictions may not only result in mandatory immigration detention, but prevent relief from deportation as well. Certain crimes can prevent a person from applying for a green card. A permanent resident convicted with certain crimes could also be deemed inadmissible which could prevent entry to the U.S. after travel abroad, or be disqualified from applying for U.S. citizenship.
In order to keep loved ones in the U.S., Attorney Odrcic specialized in post-conviction relief. This involved reviewing the facts in the case, filing a motion to withdraw the plea, and vacating the conviction.
Many offenses can be a problem under immigration law, including certain misdemeanors. If you have a criminal record, an immigration attorney can advise you if your record could be a problem in terms of inadmissibility or deportability and recommend remedies to protect you.
