Fingerprint Background Checks
Before you submit to a fingerprint background check, contact Alejo Lugo to make sure your rights are protected
The American immigration process has always involved performing background checks to prevent criminals from entering the country. Since September 11, 2001, the American government has allocated resources to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to conduct a more thorough vetting of each immigrant that applies to gain entrance into the country.
Unfortunately, human error and computer glitches can turn the fingerprints of a lawful immigrant into the fingerprints of someone who has carried out one or more crimes. If this should happen to you, you will need the assistance of an aggressive and experienced immigration attorney such as The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates.
The Immigration Background Check Process
The first step in the United States immigration background check process is a name check, which is done by the Interagency Border Inspection System. If your name checks out, the next step on the immigration background check process requires you to submit fingerprints during a biometrics appointment with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The FBI runs the fingerprints through a checking system to see if you have been convicted of a crime or if a warrant is out for your arrest. The results of fingerprint background checks typically take about 24 to 48 hours to come back to an FBI office. If your fingerprint background check takes longer than that, then you need get in touch with an experienced immigration law attorney.
