A sure way for a noncitizen with a criminal record to end up in removal proceedings (commonly known as deportation proceedings) is to seek readmission to the United States after traveling abroad. A non citizen with a criminal record who seeks readmission after travel abroad faces several unique disadvantages that would not apply if he or she had stayed in the United States. You are subject to the grounds of deportability if you have been lawfully admitted to the United States. When you leave and seek to return you are subject to much more expansive grounds of inadmissibility.
We strongly recommend that a noncitizen consult with our office before travelling outside of the United States. Please call us during office hours at 407.674.6968 to schedule a consultation. If you have an emergency after office hours please call us at (407) 925-2554 and we will contact you shortly.
