This is a tough one, as the case involved both the delicate issue of domestic violence and the very inflexible immigration system. I handle a great many of these cases and they are some of the most difficult we face since pretty much any domestic violence conviction will act as a permanent bar to naturalization.
Whatever happens, your friend needs professional assistance. The wrong statement, even a well intentioned one, can prevent him from getting the results he needs from the criminal end. And having to deal with a loose-cannon intimate partner makes it all the more difficult.
There are several fine practitioners in Atlanta that handle this type of case, and I advise you to speak to more than one of them, and soon. The longer this kind of issue goes unaddressed, more difficult the ramifications can be.
Hey Look, A Disclaimer. And it is kind of witty. Kind of. To wit: Information Provided SHOULD NOT be relied upon as binding legal advice as no advice can be reliable unless a full review of all facts has been conducted. No attorney-client relationship exists unless there is a signed retainer between the parties. My Firm does not offer ANY tax advice. The Most Costly and Expensive Advice you will ever get is from a Cheap Lawyer. Do yourself a favor and interview several lawyers before choosing the one that works best for you. Remember, Bad Lawyers make all their money through marketing. Good Lawyers make all their money by winning cases.
