Don’t Let Criminal Charges Jeopardize Your Immigration Status
Criminal charges can put your immigration status in jeopardy. In addition to detention, deportation and refusal of reentry, you may face jail time in the United States or your country of origin if convicted. It is imperative to work with a skilled lawyer who can defend your rights.
I am Mark A. Perez. At my law firm, I help clients throughout West Texas who face criminal charges or immigration law problems. When these areas intersect, I know how to stand up for you and protect your rights.
What Happens To Non-Citizens Charged With A Crime?
Whether you have permanent residency in the U.S. or you do not have the correct documentation, there is a series of steps that you will go through if charged with a crime:
- Investigation and questioning
- Arrest and detention
- Notification of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
- Immigration hearing
- Court decision regarding removal
At every one of these steps, I will ensure that the state respects your rights. I will fight to give you the best chance possible of staying in the U.S.
