Immigration Consequences of Diversion Programs

Event Description

*Online registration is closed, please e-mail to register.

Co-Sponsored with Criminal Law Section

In state criminal court, diversion programs, Continuances for Dismissal (CFD), and Continuances Without Prosecution (CWOP) are often good solutions to difficult charges for noncitizens in particular. However, these solutions also present potential pitfalls that can result in immigration consequences equal to an actual conviction. This CLE reviews the good and bad of diversion and similar programs, and what to watch for when considering them for an immigrant client.
