I was arrested for a class misdemeanor over 13 years ago.

I was arrested for a class b misdemeanor over 13 years ago. I'm not entirely sure but I may have claimed to be a us citizen when booked into jail at that time. I tried to request my arrest record but was told there was not one. If I claimed to be a us citizen at jail book in would this show up on the background checks for my green card renewal? Is there something else I should be requesting besides the arrest record?

I am a green card holder who is currently overseas (I have a valid re entry permit that does not expire for another year) but my green card expires in two months. Can I submit the I 90 green card renewal form from overseas and fly back to the US for the biometrics appointment ? The instructions for the form state that the person must be physically present in the US while submitting the form so does USCIS check on that while the form is submitted and does it lead to an automatic rejection of the application ?

I read the following and wanted to confirm with you that my speeding ticket that I am attaching does not fall under the category of public safety threat as mentioned below.The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) issued new rules recently, called guidelines. The new guidelines also give immigration officials broad latitude to deport anyone who they deem “poses a risk to public safety or national security.”Just making sure that my Green card renewal is not impacted by this ticket. As I mentioned earlier I had no jail time. arrest or anything of that sort. Just got points added and those points are also gone now.

My husband is Italian citizen and I am an American citizen. We have been married for 26 years and have been living in the USA since 1994. The problem is his Alien Registration card expired 4 days ago. We need to renew it immediately for obvious reasons and because he was about to sigh the refinancing of our home. We need proper documentation to close the loan. How can we achieve our goal?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Brentwood, California 94513JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: We have a 23year daughter, 20year old son and a 18 year old son.

I have had a US Card for 9 years. The renewal is coming next

I have had a US Green Card for 9 years. The renewal is coming next year and I was planning to apply for naturalization then. My husband is a US citizen. I had a minor collision with a parked car in a parking lot. I did not notice it and drove away. Someone gave a description and they charged me with hit and run misdemeanor - no occupant in the car. The prosecutor talked to my attorney and gave a plea offer - 6 month stay of adjudication and pay a fine with no same offense. My attorney said I can take the deal or I would have a fair chance of winning the case. My attorney does not have immigration knowledge and I need someone who has very good knowledge and experience in this area to answer as it is very important. How would this impact my US naturalization process when I apply? I also need advice on what type of risk I am taking considering the political change in the country.
