Domestic Violence Is A Crime That Will Get You Deported
The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) is set forth at Title 8 of the United States Code. Section 237 of that law contains the provisions governing the deportation of noncitizens. Committing certain crimes are grounds for automatic deportation and committing any crime may be found to be grounds for removal depending upon the particular circumstances. Crimes of domestic violence are specifically addressed by immigration laws. Any noncitizen who commits a crime of domestic violence is deportable. In addition to the provisions that address domestic violence, immigration laws include other domestic crimes that also result in deportation. If you’re a noncitizen and get convicted of a deportable domestic violence crime, it’s important to get legal assistance as quickly as possible to give yourself the best chance of successfully defending removal proceedings.
