Facing immigration problems in Pennsylvania?

On Behalf of | Aug 2, 2023 | Immigration

Emigrating from another country to the United States is exciting but also stressful. Whether you’ve been here a few short months or several years, it is alarming if legal problems arise, especially if they place you or a family member at risk for deportation. You can take comfort in knowing that guidance and support are available to help you navigate the immigration system.  

Newcomers to Pennsylvania often encounter challenges regarding their immigration status. For example, if you’re applying for a green card or hope to become a naturalized citizen, any number of issues may arise during the process to cause delays or impede your ability to accomplish your goals. If you came here on a family-based or employment-based visa, you could face legal problems if your visa expires or you’re trying to get an extension. 

Are you facing criminal charges or issues because of immigration paperwork? 

If you’re arrested and charged with a crime while living in Pennsylvania as an immigrant, the outcome of your case may affect your legal status. If you’re convicted in criminal court, you may be at risk for removal. You could also be flagged for deportation if your legal documents are not in order, and you have been detained for illegal entry across a U.S. border.  

Seeking guidance and support from a Pennsylvania attorney who is well-versed in U.S. immigration laws increases your chances of obtaining a positive outcome. If you hope to avoid removal or resolve a visa-related issue or overcome an obstacle that has arisen during the naturalization process, you may schedule a consultation with Leeth &Gaglione, in Stroudsburg. Especially if your case involves an intersection of criminal law and U.S. immigration law, a legal team with former prosecution experience is a great asset to have on your side.
