Do I have an arrest or criminal record? I am planning to

Do I have an arrest or criminal record?I am planning to apply to a new F-1 visa as an international student, as my current student visa has been expired.Yet, two months ago, I was given a traffic ticket on I-94 MI for a traffic misdemeanor charge -- improper use of plate, and the police officer confiscated my driver license.I finally went to the court to pay $100 bond to take back my license, and employed an attorney to help me with the plea bargain. The charge has finally reduced to a civil infraction (improper display of plate) from misdemeanor.I am concerning whether I have arrest and criminal record when I am filling the immigration form, as the charge eventually has been reduced to infraction level, and I have never been sent to jail/ bond court but merely a citation.

Guillermo, I was reading somewhere that if you go to the US

Hello Guillermo,I was reading somewhere that if you go to the US on a student visa that you cannot present in the US sooner than 30 days prior to starting school. Is that accurate? If so, how exactly does that work? If I was visiting in the US would I have to leave and then return again within 30 days of starting school or do I have to stay completely out of the US at some point? (Maybe after my visa is approved or something like that?)Thanks!!

Hello i'm in Orlando,FL i'm an american citizen born in Brazil my husband have a deportation order and the DHS don't wanna join the motion to re-open his case in order to let him apply for the green card because he had a DUI (reduced as a reckless drive) in 2007 that's was the reason he ended in the immigration facility for a month. We have a child together that is an american borned here in 2010. Our "lawyer" said he couldn't do anything for my husband's case. There is any advice you could give to me please?! My husband is not a felony and i can't believed there is nothing that can be done in order to apply for his green card.

I am currently in USA on ESTA. I am an Estonian Citizen, but

Hello! I am currently in USA on ESTA. I am an Estonian Citizen, but I got my Masters Degree in USA. My Student Visa is no longer valid, although I have been here on and off since October 2016-playing concerts. I travel in and out of the country every other month. As an artist/musician I want to apply for an Artist Visa. But this will take forever and I don't have that much time. While I have been here, I met someone and we are expecting a child. I have my doctor at home, but I don't want to travel back and forth so much. Not only it might not be good for the baby, I also want the father to be apart of everything. I have international insurance, but it only covers emergency. What are my options?
