Criminal backgrounds

Immigration law can change retrospectively, and changes can lead to deportation for individuals with old criminal convictions, even if the crime was committed 20-30 years ago. It is in your interests to have your criminal history reviewed prior seeking citizenship or traveling abroad.

Re-opening convictions

If the basis for removal proceedings is a criminal conviction, it may be necessary to try to re-open and amend the criminal conviction so it no longer has immigration consequences.
