Family Law & Immigration

How Immigration and Family Law Intersect

Clients who come to Fayad Law, P.C. for help with some type of immigration legal issue often also need assistance with resolving family law problems. Fortunately, unlike many law firms, we do not focus exclusively on only one area of practice. Our Virginia immigration attorneys routinely represent clients in family law cases such as divorce, child custody disputes, and adoption, and we are prepared to provide you with comprehensive legal representation to address your needs.

One of the most common issues that involve aspects of both immigration and family law is domestic violence. When an individual is arrested after an incident of domestic violence, it is crucial for the defendant to seek legal representation to avoid a conviction, since a conviction for domestic violence or any criminal activity can be cited as grounds for deportation. Another scenario in which family law and immigration status are intertwined is during a divorce or child custody dispute.

Family law courts determine custody based on what is in the best interests of the children involved. If either parent is of a nonpermanent immigrant status or is subject to ongoing removal proceedings, this fact may be used to deny him or her custody on the basis that the immigrant parent's ability to remain in the U.S. may be uncertain.
