Man charged with DUI now facing US immigration law problem

Many Florida families currently have one or more members facing immigration-related problems.

U.S. immigration law requires a person in such circumstances to cooperate with prosecutors and law enforcement agents to pursue conviction against the party or parties who committed the crime.

Resources available to help with US immigration law problems

Whether you recently arrived in Florida from another country or have lived here for more than a decade, you may have already faced several challenges regarding your legal status. U.S. immigration law is quite complex and often changes, so it's difficult to stay updated on current regulations and processes. You may act with the best intentions, then learn that you made an error because laws have changed; worse, the error you made may have placed you at risk for removal.
