I received a reckless driving ticket for driving 100 in a 35. No physical or bodily injury was done to anyone. This was at 11 pm, so no automobiles were present. I am 18 years old with a conditional resident status. My father remarried a few years ago and has already received a permanent resident status (the ten year green card
). I am currently a student and I also work four to six hours a night. I am wondering if I could be denied a ten year green card due to this situation, which I'm supposed to get within these few months. I have an appointment scheduled for fingerprinting and for a picture to be taken in the next two weeks at my local USCIS office. I am currently working with a lawyer to attempt decreasing the charge to speeding, in order to get it down to an infraction. I will follow all of the necessary court processes. The charge was not yet entered the criminal record, yet since the DMV is a separate entity, it may enter their record within the next few weeks, unless there's something I do not understand about how these charges enter the record.
In all of the fundamentals of immigration
law I've read, it states that they could deny an extension if any physical or bodily injury was done to someone else, which it was not. However, since I was 65 over the limit, could this be used to deny my permanent residence? I have no previous tickets, with exception of the one I did traffic school for, which was not yielding a pedestrian.
Thank you for helping me.
