Domestic Violence Accusations can Impact Your Immigration Status
Domestic violence does not just refer to physical force or threats of harm against spouses or significant others. Charges of domestic violence can be made on behalf of an ex-spouse or a child. Like many other types of criminal charges, being accused of domestic violence can impact your immigration status. You could also be deported. If you face these legal challenges, reach out to us for a domestic violence criminal defense lawyer and immigration attorney who knows how to help.
Charges of domestic violence are made by the state on behalf of an individual. This means that the individual cannot decide to drop the charges once they have been made; the legal process must be completed. Even if the accusations are false or the person making the accusations wants to withdraw the charges, they cannot. You need a skilled lawyer if you face domestic violence related charges. Because state prosecutors will be aggressive in their quest for a conviction, you need an aggressive defender of your rights.
