In Padilla vs. Kentucky, the US Supreme Court ruled “that criminal defense attorneys must advise non-citizen clients about the potential immigration consequences of accepting a guilty plea”.

factr’s Immigration Hardship Center works with the legal community to ensure newcomers Sixth Amendment rights are protected.

The Immigration Hardship Center provides lawyers with forensic mental health evaluations, including summary psycho-social reports on behalf of clients for consideration in immigration court proceedings, counseling for clients under legal stressors, case management, and paralegal services.
