Philadelphia Immigration Fraud Lawyers

Philadelphia Immigration Fraud Lawyers
With recent changes in immigration law, an increasing number of people are finding struggles and barriers in their path to citizenship. The government is increasingly examining all applications for signs that there is dishonesty or other red flags. If you or a loved one has been accused of immigration fraud, an experienced attorney should be your first step.

Immigration fraud is becoming a mounting problem in the US. If you have been accused or charged, you need an expert Philadelphia criminal defense attorney on your side to help fight charges and possible deportation.

What Is Immigration Fraud?

Many people who are new to this country long for their own American dream. Getting permanent residency or citizenship is an essential part of this dream.

However, the system can make the goal of becoming an American almost impossible. People face long waits, high fees, and endless demands for documents. Many people in this situation are tempted to use false information, fake documents, fake marriages, and other strategies to make the process faster and more affordable.

In many cases, these immigrants do not mean to hurt anyone or break American laws. The immigration system is so complicated that it is easy to misstep. Any mistakes can lead to criminal charges and deportation.

Don’t let a small mistake or lapse in judgment stand between you and your American dreams. If you or a loved one have been charged with immigration fraud, it is important to take action immediately. Let us help you to clear up the matter and move on with your life.

Consequences of an Immigration Fraud Conviction

An imigration fraud charge can change your life in a variety of ways. If convicted, you will likely be deported. You may be barred from re-entering the United States for several years or even for life. Many people who are convicted of this crime must leave behind family, friends, and a job, never to return for even a short visit. If you have a spouse or minor children who are immigrants, they also may be deported.

In addition, you may be fined or face prison time. Federal prosecutors will ask for maximum penalties and sentences even in minor cases.

This is a very serious situation. However, it is not hopeless. An experienced immigration lawyer can review your case and let you know your options. They can help you to move forward in a way that will give you and your family the best possible chance of success.

We Hear Your Side

A high-quality immigration lawyer will ensure that courts know your side of the story. Maybe you did not realize that your actions were fraud. Perhaps you acted under extreme stress. Many immigrants misunderstand exactly documents qualify. We also can explore other options for citizenship, such as asylum or refugee status.

In some cases, a lawyer can get you released on bond. This allows you to work and continue acting as a good citizen, which is compelling to judges. Once a person is released, some courts will simply drop the case.

Immigration fraud can have extreme consequences, but there are many ways to fight the charge. We will ensure that you get the expert defense you need.

Don’t Let Your Family Be Torn Apart

Even small mistakes in the immigration process can lead to deportation and prison time. However, an expert lawyer can help. If you or someone you care about is facing immigration fraud choices, it is important to act quickly. Call our office today to schedule a free consultation with one of our Philadelphia immigration fraud lawyers. We are committed to treating immigrants of all kinds with the respect they deserve and ensuring that you have the best possible chance of fulfilling your American dream.
