Immigration concerns often coincide with criminal charges

Individuals who have come to live in the United States from other countries often have more concerns than people who were born in New Jersey and other parts of the country. In particular, if an immigrant is accused of a crime, he or she faces a serious ordeal. Not only does that person have to worry about the punishments that a conviction could have but also the effects a conviction or even an arrest could have on immigration status.

It was recently reported that a man in another state is currently facing federal charges after allegedly providing false information on his naturalization application. Allegedly, the 29-year-old man stated that he had never committed a crime or an offense for which authorities had not arrested him and that he had never been charged with committing a crime. However, that was apparently not the case.

The man submitted this information on his naturalization application in Nov. 2017 and was naturalized in Dec. 2017. However, it was reportedly discovered that the man had been charged with criminal offenses before. As a result, he was recently taken into custody on charges relating to making a false statement. 

When individuals are facing both criminal and immigration issues, it is wise to have the assistance of legal professionals who are knowledgeable in both areas of law. New Jersey residents in this type of predicament certainly do not want to contend with unnecessary repercussions due to a lack of knowledge or information. This ordeal can be immensely overwhelming, and having the right help may allow individuals to feel more in control of their cases.
