Facing Deportation Due To A Criminal Conviction?

Criminal convictions have especially devastating consequences for individuals who are not permanent residents of the U.S. If you have a green card, a criminal conviction can lead to removal from the country and you need legal help. You need an attorney with a strong know-how of your options when your case involves both criminal and immigration law.

At Ceballos Legal Consulting, LLC, we have strong experience in crimmigration. Our knowledge helps people facing the risk of deportation due to a criminal conviction seek resolution. Our New Orleans area criminal immigration attorney, Cynthia Ceballos, has represented clients for more than 13 years across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee.

We Offer Strategic Guidance For Families Facing The Removal Of A Loved One

Criminal convictions that can lead to deportation include:

  • Crimes involving moral turpitude. The guidelines on exactly what is a crime of moral turpitude are vague. But crimes like theft, fraud, assault and robbery, typically are considered crimes of moral turpitude. Drunk driving also sometimes falls into this category.
  • Aggravated felonies, such as murder, rape, and violent crimes.
  • All drug convictions, except for possession of 30 grams of marijuana or less
  • Weapons-related crimes
  • Domestic violence-related crimes
  • Human trafficking

A number of other factors must be considered, such as whether the offender is in the United States lawfully. Whatever your loved one's situation involves, we understand how much is at stake and will create the best possible strategy to achieve your goals.

We Understand Your Priorities

For most of our clients facing the threat of deportation, release from detention is the most pressing concern. Whenever possible, we will seek a hearing to have you or your loved one released on bond. After a bond hearing, we will look closely at all possible types of relief, including cancellation of removal, a waiver of inadmissibility, asylum or an adjustment of status. In certain situations, post-conviction relief may be the best option. In these instances, we will work closely with a criminal defense attorney to support your case.
