Ask an Immigration Lawyer. Get an Answer ASAP.
I am not sure when was the cased closed but I was sentence on September 9, 2008. My 3 year probation ended somewhere in 2010. And yes two charges in one incident.
Okay well, next year i have to travel to philippines because i am getting married and everything is all set ..... will my misdemeanor find me inadmissible? if i travel out of US for at least 3 months and then come back, will i have problems at the airport? ... and how come my lawyer is telling me that i can apply for citizenship next month? i am very confused.
You know that's how i feel about my lawyer, he just wants my money. So, here are some few questions i need answers and i will rate you.
1. What is the best advise you can give me? Since i have to wait until 2015 to apply for citizenship, will i be okay to apply for my self (not hiring a lawyer), will i have greater chances of getting approved? I have friends and family letters to prove a good moral character.
2. Since i have to travel outside of US, Is there a type of waiver i should obtain in order to successfully enter US again?
3. Does my case falls under petty offense exception?
just 3 honest answers please. Thank you so much!
you committed only one crime involving moral turpitude; and
you were not sentenced to a term of imprisonment in excess of six months ”; and
the offense carries a maximum possible sentence of one year or less.
Please do not forget to rate me positively. Since I am not paid a salary, it is the only way that I get paid. You are not charged again and I will not abandon you after you rate me positively if you have additional questions. Thank you.
