I Have Committed a Crime: Will I Be Deported?
Not necessarily, but it is essential to work with a lawyer who understands the intersection between criminal charges and immigration. Attorney Gloria Cardenas has years of experience as a lawyer helping individuals who are facing deportation and removal. She works directly with her clients' public defender or private defense attorney and seeks outcomes that prevent a conviction that could lead to deportation.
If your loved one has already been charged or convicted, we have extensive experience handling deportation cases that arise out of criminal arrest or criminal conviction. Crimes that could lead to deportation include:
- Sex crimes
- Drug crimes
- Fraudulent Social Security cards
- Fraudulent driver's licenses
- Violent crimes
- Weapons charges
- Theft charges
- Domestic violence
- Domestic violence in front of a minor
- Warrants for arrest
If your loved one has already been transferred to the Utah County Jail in Spanish Fork, the regional Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center, our office is close enough to the facility that we can meet directly with your loved one in jail to discuss the details of his or her case in person. We can also talk directly with ICE agents to verify the status of your loved one's case as well as negotiate directly with ICE officials, if possible, to keep your loved one from being deported.
Additionally, our office is located just three blocks from the Immigration Court in Salt Lake City, so we can file any bond reduction paperwork or other paperwork directly with the court, without the additional cost and time constraints of shipping. Our proximity to the courthouse also allows us to represent your loved one in court at a moment's notice.
