Immigration Consequences of a Criminal Conviction

A person’s application for a U.S. visa, stamping, green card, or citizenship may be denied if they have been convicted of certain crimes. Conviction of certain serious crimes may result in the loss of a legal status in the U.S. If you currently hold a visa or are in the process of applying for a visa, green card, or citizenship and have been convicted of a crime, it is important to seek the guidance of a competent lawyer. We highly recommend that non-citizens facing criminal proceedings consult with an immigration lawyer before entering a plea.
