Immigration Gun Conviction

We Work To Keep Your Record Clean So You Can Remain In The U.S.

An individual who has been convicted of a firearms offense is deportable and subject to removal from the United States. Deportability for a "firearms offense" encompasses but is not limited to selling, exchanging, using, possessing, or purchasing a firearm or destructive device in violation of state or federal law. An individual is deportable for a firearms violation regardless of when the offense occurred or the conviction was entered.

Additionally, a state firearms offense may be considered an aggravated felony if it is described by a federal law counterpart. Some examples of offenses that may potentially be viewed as aggravated felonies include:

• Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

• Possession of a firearm by a fugitive from justice.

• Possession of a firearm by unlawful user of controlled substances or an addict.

• Possession of a firearm by an illegal alien or an alien in nonimmigrant status.

• Use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

The attorneys at Godoy Law Office, can help determine whether you are eligible to vacate your criminal conviction or whether you are eligible to file for post conviction relief, such as a Padilla appeal. Additionally, we can help you determine if you are eligible for any other removal relief such as Cancellation of Removal.
