Will I be deported with a felony on my background?

Madera, CA |

I was involved in a hit and run accident in which a person died. I was sentenced to 270 days in county jail. Within the first week, I.C.E. went and spoke to me. I was released after 100 days without an immigration hold. I am now working and on 5 yr probation. Will I get deported due to my background when its time to renew my green card in 3 years? I have three children that are U.S. Citizens one which is disabled. Please help.

Contact a local Immigration attorney - many offer free consultations.

This is not intended to be legal advise or as legal representation. I am a California personal injury attorney . Be aware that every state has its own statute of limitations; and statutes & case laws that govern the handling of these matters.


Most likely, but you really should get an immigration law consult to be sure of your potential consequences.

No legal advice is given here. My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must NOT be relied upon as if they were legal advice. I give legal advice ONLY in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions & Answers forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by joint execution of a written agreement for legal services. I am only licensed in the States of California and New York and the District of Columbia


It depends on what you were convicted of, and what your immigration status is.

Looks like hit and run resulting in death, green card holder.


Not necessarily. It depends on a statute under which you have been convicted and your rehabilitation.
