Sometimes, criminal attorneys, no matter how experienced, have little knowledge of the immigration consequences of a criminal conviction for an immigrant. Especially those who are in the United States lawfully.
Most of the time does not make sense that a misdemeanor conviction could result in the permanent deportation of a non-national. Other times, a sentenced of probation and no days in jail also will carry serious consequences to non-nationals.
Under the law, a person who was not advise of the clear immigration consequences of a plea to a criminal charge, may be able to go back to that Court and undo his plea. This means, that person could go back and start his case from the begging. There are few requirements for a Court to reopen a case. these include the date of the plea, the advise of counsel, and the understanding of the immigrant of his rights.
