H1B Visa Arrest Consequences
H-1B visas allow U.S. employers to hire foreign workers in certain occupations. The special relationship between the foreign worker and sponsoring employer is the basis of this visa and unique immigration consequences following any arrest. Because an arrest can lead to the loss of a visa, many employers have strict policies about arrests and/or convictions by their H-1B visa holder employees. If you’ve been arrested in the US and you have a H-1B visa, you will need to pursue ways to obtain the right outcome in criminal court while properly navigating your employer’s policy on arrests and convictions.
