What happens if you’re not an American citizen
Facing a criminal charge can be a scary situation, especially when citizenship is a factor. The first thing you need to do is relax and find out where you stand. Our first goal is to figure out exactly where you are and determine whether posting bail is appropriate in your case. Sometimes it's crucial to move quickly in order to prevent Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from holding you in custody. If ICE has already put an "ICE Hold" on you while you are in the custody of the state, sometimes it is not beneficial to post bail. Once in ICE custody, if they refuse to release you, the next step is to figure out what we can do to minimize the immigration consequences of the arrest itself and/or any criminal conviction.
Once we move past this stage, we can then begin to implement a strategy and get a game plan going for your case. We always keep the ideal scenario in mind, which can include reaching a settlement agreement, accepting a fair plea bargain, or going to trial if necessary.
