Richmond Criminal Defense Lawyer for Immigrants

Fighting Against Deportation in Virginia

Being arrested for a crime can be a devastating experience for anyone. Consequences such as steep fines, time in jail or prison, lengthy probation, and a future of living with the stigma of a criminal record, can all have an enormously negative impact on every aspect of a person's life. For an individual who is present in the United States on an immigrant or nonimmigrant visa, however, involvement in the criminal justice system carries the additional repercussion of potentially being deported and declared inadmissible for re-entry to the United States.

According to statistics provided by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), more than half of the individuals who were deported from the United States in 2012 were removed on the basis of having been convicted of a crime. There has been a dramatic increase in ICE's focus on criminal-based deportation enforcement: Whereas only 33 percent of removals in 2008 involved criminal convictions, 55 percent of removals in 2012, which translates to a total of 225,416 people, were due to criminal convictions.

Consequences of a Criminal Arrest

Don't let a mistake or false allegations lead to deportation, which could separate you from your friends and family and cause you to lose everything that you have worked so hard to achieve in this country. As soon as possible after you have been arrested or charged with a crime, contact us at Fayad Law, P.C. for a confidential consultation with a Virginia immigration lawyer from our team.

If you get us involved early in the process, we may be able to intervene to resolve the charges or work to exonerate you. Even if you have already been convicted, it might be possible to safeguard your immigration status by appealing the conviction or pursuing some type of immigration relief such as a waiver of inadmissibility or cancellation of removal. Your first step is to contact one of our offices in Virginia so that our Richmond and Fairfax immigration attorneys can review the situation and begin working on a strategy for you.
