I am sorry to hear this.

He will not be able to get his citizenship with a pending criminal charge.

As soon as the matter is dealt with you will be able to apply. There is not much likelihood that your child will be convicted given the minor seriousness of the crime so this should turn out alright but you should wait and see what happens and hold off applying.

Does that make sense?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
