Immigration Consequences of Criminal Activity

Safeguarding Your Immigration Status: Criminal Defense Strategies

It Is a harsh reality, but the rules are not the same for U.S. citizens and immigrants when it comes to criminal activity. At The O’Brien Law Group, we understand the immigration consequences of your criminal conviction. We recognize that your criminal conviction could threaten your ability to remain in the United States. Our lead attorney, Rusty O’Brien, has more than 10 years of experience providing comprehensive criminal defense strategies for those charged with criminal activity. He can evaluate the charges against you and formulate legal strategies to try to avoid deportation or removal.

Post-Conviction Relief

If you were already charged and convicted, we can try to obtain post-conviction relief. This process can be complicated. The Supreme Court recently ruled that post-conviction relief cannot be based on immigration implications alone. It requires us to find legal cause to reopen your case.

Waiver Requests

If your criminal charge or conviction makes you eligible for removal/deportation, it may still be possible to obtain a waiver to remain in the country. There are many types of immigration waivers. Typically, it is necessary to show extreme hardship to a spouse or family member in order to obtain a waiver.
