In order to naturalize, for the 5 years of good moral character, does it mean that I cannot have ANY types of convictions on my record? On my criminal history it shows that I had misdemeanor offense and warrant that dates 10/19/2007. It has not been 5 years and Im trying to see if that offense will make me ineligible to become a us citizen?
