        Can prior arrests prevent citizenship?


        We’ve been asked recently if prior arrests can prevent someone from becoming a US citizen. It depends. Some arrests can result in your green card being revoked and have you deported back to your country. One of the reasons or one of the requirements for you to become a United States citizen is you must show good moral characters. A lot of arrests that have to deal with drugs, drug use, selling drugs, gang activity, violent activity, those types of crimes, being convicted of those types of crimes, can many times cause you to get deported and may prevent you from obtaining a United States citizenship, even some arrests, even without a conviction, specifically, like we mentioned, for drugs, that may tend to show that you’re not a person or what they feel a person of good moral character is. Even the mere arrest can sometimes have a detrimental arrest to your continued stay in the United States. That part may cause you to be deported. Being arrested alone may also affect your ability to obtain citizenship because, like we said, one of the requirements is to show that you’re of good moral character. Anyone that’s here that’s trying to immigrate into the United States that’s here under a visa, it’s important that they try to avoid any type of entanglement with the law.

        If they don’t, it’s important that you retain an attorney that’s not only experienced in criminal law but that has experience in immigration law as well so that they can make sure that what you do and what defenses and how you handle your criminal case doesn’t affect your immigration status and your immigration situation. Those two go hand in hand. We at the Victory law firm have attorneys that specialize in criminal law and we also have attorneys that specialize in immigration and we are able to navigate both to make sure that we don’t affect someone’s immigration status or ability to continue to stay or gain citizenship in the United States isn’t accepted by a mistake or a perceived mistake or by an unlawful detainment by a police officer. If this is your situation, we invite you to call us. We’ll give you a free consultation. We can discuss your particular case and at least give you guidance so that you know exactly what you need to look out for if this is your situation. Feel free to give us a call.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
