A DUI can threaten your life in America

You've always been very careful about how you act in the United States, because you know certain actions could lead to deportation. Now, you're worried about your future, because you've been accused of drunk driving. You know you face heavy penalties, but do those penalties include deportation?

Fortunately, getting accused of a DUI or even receiving a DUI doesn't mean you're going to be deported. Many DUIs are misdemeanor crimes, and those are not deportable in most cases. However, if your DUI is charged as a felony, you do run the risk of deportation.

There are a few ways to know if your DUI could lead to deportation. First, if you've had prior DUIs, you could face a felony and be at risk of deportation. If you had a child in the car at the time of your arrest, that's also enough to cause a felony charge and to threaten your life here in the United States.

While many people who struggle with DUI charges do not get deported, the charges still have the potential to influence their immigration statuses. For example, if you are in the United States as a refugee, a conviction may make it impossible to obtain legal permanent resident status.

If you're facing a DUI charge, don't worry about what's going to happen. Take the steps you need to take to know what the most likely outcome is. Knowledge is power in court, and you can defend yourself in order to protect your right to live in the United States. Our website has more information on the steps to take next.
