Is the family law court judgement on domestic violence has the same effect as the criminal court conviction to green card holder

Asked over 4 years ago - Los Angeles, CA

I mean, as a green card holder, even a judgement from family court would also cause deportation? I understand that it is no doubt that in criminal court, if convicted, it is automatic deportation.

but I have no idea, any domestic violence judgement from family court would also cause deportation?

    Answered . You need to consult with an immigration attorney. My understanding is that a felony conviction may trigger a deportation, not a family law judgment.
