Appeals & Post Conviction Relief for Non-U.S. Citizens

Were you convicted of a crime? Are you sure?

Post Conviction

Many people do not realize that they have a conviction on their record for immigration purposes. Sometimes even dismissed charges are considered convictions under federal immigration law. Here’s the federal definition of conviction: “a formal judgment of guilt of the alien entered by the court” or, “if adjudication of guilt has been withheld, where…a judge has found the alien guilty, or the alien has entered a plea of guilty or nolo contendere, or has admitted sufficient facts to warrant a finding of guilt, and…the judge has ordered some form of punishment, penalty, or restraint on the alien’s liberty to be imposed.” INA § 101(a)(48)(A), 8 U.S.C. § 1101(a)(48)(A).
Before you end up at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for an interview, or in Immigration Court for deportation proceedings, make sure a CrImmigration lawyer does a thorough review.

If your criminal case is over, and it resulted in a conviction (any admission of guilt), STERN Law knows how to best help you avoid deportation or denial of immigration benefits.

WARNING: Before you file any immigration application, you must first understand if the conviction will make you either removable/deportable from the U.S. or inadmissible to the U.S. upon attempted re-entry . If so, your application could trigger removal/deportation proceedings.  It is important that your immigration attorney also understands criminal law in order to counsel you on your best options and the effects of the criminal conviction.
