Lawful Permanent Resident and DUI

Posted on:8/6/2012
Failure to produce your green card when stopped for DUI can have serious consequences. You can be subject to deportation proceedings.


Failure to produce your green card when stopped for DUI can have serious consequences. You can be subject to deportation proceedings.

 

Once you become a lawful permanent resident, you are under a legal obligation to carry your green card with you at all times. It is the evidence of your lawful immigration status.

 

The consequences of a DUI conviction can be severe. However if it is your first offence, you will be allowed to go after paying a hefty fine. But if you are charged with DUI together with another offense, then you will be in big trouble. As a lawful permanent resident you must have your green card with you at all times. You must produce your green card when demanded by a law enforcement officer. It is a misdemeanor if you do not produce your green card. So you will be charged with two offenses at the same time. This can result in severe penalties.

 

You need not be convicted. Even if you enroll in a some court program in lieu of the penalty, it will be considered as conviction for immigration purposes. DUI can severely affect your status as a lawful permanent resident.

 

If you have only applied for a green card and you are convicted for DUI, then it is highly unlikely that you will receive your green card. Fight the DUI charges against you.
