My wife and i have an attorney but i would like a second opion.
What were you convicted of?
Thanks for the information. That is good news. This type of offense is not one that will bar your wife from immigration benefits. If it was a domestic abuse issue that you were convicted of, you would not be eligible to sponsor your wife. But seeing that it was not, you still can petition for her, no problem.I hope I have answered your question.
