Committed to fighting for those charged with passport fraud

Thanks to enduring concerns about homeland security, there are certain areas to which the federal government has -- and will continue to -- devote significant investigative resources and considerable enforcement capabilities.

For example, federal officials are constantly looking to apprehend individuals -- citizens and foreign nationals alike -- whom they believe are committing visa or passport fraud. This is significant, of course, as many of those convicted of these offenses face not just large fines and lengthy prison sentences, but possible deportation.

While the idea of visa and passport fraud likely conjures up images of individuals somehow altering visas or manufacturing fake passports for sale, it can actually encompass other types of actions that people often undertake not out of any nefarious intent, but rather out of sheer desperation:

  • Entering into a marriage under false pretenses in order to secure citizenship
  • Submitting false identification documents in order to gain entrance or remain in the U.S.
  • Supplying false information on a visa application in order to stay in the U.S. longer

At O'Brien Hatfield, PA, our attorneys have handled many of these types of cases. As such, they understand and appreciate that many times people engage in what the federal government classifies as fraud out of sheer frustration with the system, a desire to stay with their loved ones, or even by mistake.

No matter the situation, our attorneys will work tirelessly to secure a dismissal of the charges and, if this is not possible, prepare a strong defense designed to protect your freedom and your future. Indeed, their extensive experience and comprehensive trial skill means they are uniquely equipped and wholly undaunted by the prospect of taking your case to federal court.
