Criminal Charges And Immigration Waivers

If you are an immigrant and have been convicted of a crime — or are currently facing criminal charges — you could face significant consequences such as deportation.

Immigrants who have a criminal record or are charged with crimes often face penalties when they want to apply for an adjustment of status or simply renew their visa. The consequences can include:

  • Denial of a visa
  • Denial of an adjustment of status (green card)
  • Ineligibility for U.S. citizenship
  • Mandatory removal (deportation)

If you are in this situation, we can help you. At the Washington Immigration Law Firm, our attorneys have experience working with complicated immigration cases when people need serious legal help. Two of our attorneys are immigrants and a third is a former immigration judge, so we know immigration law inside and out. We use our knowledge of the law and passion for helping immigrants to work with our clients so they can stay in the U.S.

If you have been charged with a crime or have a criminal record, we may be able to help you stay in the U.S. Contact us for a consultation. We speak English, Mandarin and Spanish.Hablamos español.

Our Immigration Attorney Can Help You Get A Waiver Of Inadmissibility

The U.S. has strict rules for immigrants who commit crimes or other offenses, but there are ways to stay in the U.S. legally. In many cases, immigrants can apply for a waiver of inadmissibility from U.S. Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) if they are denied a visa or adjustment of status because they are deemed ineligible. Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, people are usually deemed ineligible for one of the following reasons:

  • They committed a crime, including drug possession.
  • They remained in the U.S. after their visa expired.
  • They came to the U.S. illegally.

If you are in any of these categories or are otherwise ineligible for a visa or adjustment of status, it is important to speak to an experienced immigration waiver attorney as soon as possible. We may be able to help.
