Reducing The Ripple Effect

Criminal charges have a ripple effect. They often intersect with other areas of law such as immigration and family law. If you are a noncitizen, you must take extra care in resolving any criminal charges. A misstep can jeopardize your immigration status, potentially leading to deportation or permanent immigration bars. Likewise, if you are involved in a divorce or child custody case, a criminal conviction can endanger your interests. Astute legal guidance is critical in navigating these complex issues.

Lawyer Kristine Zajac is familiar with all the ways these areas of law overlap. She can help you minimize the impact on your immigration status or family law case.
