Immigration Law Questions? Ask an Immigration Lawyer.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.
Please give me the details of the "deferred" status.
Did you appear before a judge?
Did you have to admit to the facts of the case - ie that you committed domestic violence?
Or was the case deferred on the court docket by your attorney and agreement of the prosecutor and after a period of time you performed some community service or stayed out of trouble and then the case was dismissed.
The key here is whether you admitted any guilt before a judge.
