Criminal Record Solutions
What are the Solutions?
Waivers – Immigration and Nationality Act section 212(h) provides a waiver for persons convicted of Crimes Involving Moral Turpitude, Controlled Substance Violations (except trafficking), and multiple criminal offenses. Hardship to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse, parent or child (as defined by the Act) must be shown, and the waiver must be sought in conjunction with an application for admission to the U.S. or adjustment of status. This waiver is discretionary, and our skilled attorneys can best present the balancing of factors that are taken into consideration.
Expungements – Current case law has interpreted immigration laws to ignore the effect of after-acquired expungements, deferred adjudications, or other ameliorative relief offered by the various state court systems. Thus, once convicted, a person remains convicted, even if pronouncement of judgment has been withheld or later erased. However, our experienced lawyers are familiar with novel approaches to modify criminal records and can make tailored arguments to slip around the harsh effects of the criminal alien laws.
The immigration lawyers at HILL & PIIBE serve clients of all nationalities living in the Los Angeles, California area, including Riverside and Bakersfield and all of San Bernardino County, Orange County, San Diego County, Ventura County, and Santa Barbara County.
