Domestic Violence and Immigration
If you are visiting this country or actively seeking citizenship, a domestic violence conviction can permanently derail your plans. Crimes such as domestic violence, child abuse and child neglect are considered deportable offenses. Also, if you are found to have violated an order of protection, you are also subject to probation. Our defense lawyers understand the immigration consequences of domestic violence charges and can help you pursue freedom from the consequences of a conviction.
