American immigration laws are notoriously complex and even convoluted at times. What’s more, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and other government officials do not always enforce these laws in a consistent manner. As a result, it can be difficult, if not impossible to predict the outcome of your immigration case. When you are subject to deportation from the U.S., for whatever reason, it is crucial that you consult with an experienced California immigration lawyer who can give you the appropriate legal advice and guide you through the different stages of your legal proceedings. As an immigrant with no legal status, you may be reluctant to trust anyone, even your own lawyer, with detailed information about your entry into the U.S. and the circumstances that led you to travel to and/or remain in the U.S. without legal status. You may be fearful of deportation in this new era of heightened immigration enforcement and afraid of losing your job, your home, and your family to deportation. In these situations, it is tempting to try and make the details surrounding your story appear more beneficial to you, or to not disclose every detail to your lawyer, especially if that detail might hurt you. However, this is the last thing that you should do in this situation. If you don’t disclose every detail of your circumstances, he or she may be unable to adequately help you. Even worse, because you don’t tell every detail to your lawyer, he or she may choose not to use a defense or strategy that might ultimately be helpful to the success of your case. It is absolutely essential that you tell your lawyer everything, whether it is an embarrassing or unpleasant detail or not. Without this knowledge, your lawyer cannot give the comprehensive legal representation that you need in your case.
