    It is necessary that you have your criminal attorney work with an experienced immigration attorney who can provide a legal opinion related to the immigration consequences of any criminal court action.

    The failure to be completely honest in the application and interview process will result in a denial of immigration benefits now or at a later date when the fraud is determined. Every form has a signature line with an attestation that clearly states the implications of false statements.

    each State has specific leglislation as who who can be a party to law suits. Not sure about California, but in Florida the legal ststus of a party cannot be used as a sword or as a shield. But with any law suit, it is not the ability to sue but the ability to collect judgment if you are successful that needs to be examined. You should contact a litigation attorney in California for a legal opinion as to your rights. Good luck.

    Current immigration law specifically states that children such, as your son, cannot petition for undocumented parents until they reach 21.Your best option is to contact an experienced immigration attorney who can examine your complete immigration history to see if there exists any possible immigration relief. good luck.
