Using False Documents to Cross the Border

Fought By Our Immigration Crimes Attorneys in Michigan

When crossing the border into the US, a person or vehicle can be subject to search without a warrant. In Michigan, we have two international border crossings: The cities of Detroit and Port Huron. If a person is found to be engaged in criminal activity, they may face criminal charges at both state and federal levels. In particular, using false documents to cross the border can result in severe penalties, with deportation being a likely possibility. If you failed to register when you crossed the border or are charged with using falsified documents, it’s imperative that you secure legal representation as soon as possible.

Fight Your Charges to Avoid Deportation

Using falsified documents to cross into the United States is a serious charge and can result in your deportation or removal from the country. This can result in a separation from your family and affect your ability to return to the country legally. Many situations can lead to an individual attempting to use false documents like counterfeit passports and immigration paperwork, and if this is your situation and you are facing criminal charges, do not lose hope.

An experienced immigration lawyer, like those at The Law Offices of Barton Morris, can help you understand the charges brought against you, and you may find that you are still able to obtain legal documentation and entry into the US.

Options open to non-citizens who are facing deportation include:

  • Deferred action
  • Voluntary departure
  • Cancellation of removal
  • Seeking refugee or asylum seeker status

The options available to you will depend on the nature of your case. To find out what the best course of action is for you, call our Michigan immigration crimes attorneys for guidance.
