What Offenses can Result in Deportation?
An immigrant can be deported from this country for a variety of reasons, including:
- Marriage fraud
- Willful misrepresentation
- Visa overstay
- Violating their status
- Unlawful presence (ULP)
- Falsifying immigration documents
- Obtaining employment contrary to the terms of their visa
- An aggravated felony criminal conviction
- A guilty verdict in a criminal case involving moral turpitude
A conviction in a criminal case is considered especially serious and can result in rapid deportation if the crime involved an aggravated felony such as murder, rape, drug trafficking or sexual abuse of a child.
You can also be removed from this country for moral turpitude crimes involving various sexual offenses.
Johnson & Nicholson provides effective representation at deportation hearings and will aggressively defend your rights to ensure that the final decision is in your best interest.
