Customer Question
Hi there, I have the...
Hi there, I have the following situation.
on the year 2005, a committed a crime cashing a check for about $4,800, I went to jail for 2 days. Months later I went to the trial and the prosecutor tried to charge me for "theft by taking" FELONY. At the end of the trial the final judgment was "theft by taking MISDEMEANOR with 6 moths probation and 80 hours of community service. I completed every step with the justice system.
My immigration status was "out of status" visa B1 expired and overstayed the country (USA).
On the year 2011, I married a USA citizen and he petitioned for me to obtain an adjust of the status and/or green card. At the time of the interview with the immigration officer, he looked at my background and mentioned the needed of consult with his superiors because of the incident mentioned at the beginning. a few days later I got approved and received the green card by mail.
2 years later my husband sent the new package to USCI asking the "removal of condition" of my green card. Few month laters I received the new approval notice and the new card by mail without any issues.
I already divorced the US citizen and it's been 5 years since I obtained the first green card and now I want to apply for a citizenship.
Finally, my question is if I will experiment once again any issues because of my incident in back 2005 and what steps if any, do I need to complete in order to obtain the citizenship?
Thank you ***** this the only incident I had in my entire life.

Then you should not have anything to worry about as they are already aware of it and you were approved for Residency and it has been longer than 5 years since the close of your case including time on probation. Just make sure you answer all questions on the N-400 honestly, that you disclose the issue and maybe you may want to submit a certified copy of completion of probation if that wasn't submitted before.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested in these – I am happy to give you more details! If you have no further questions (at this time) please leave a positive rating for my service. I would sincerely ***** ***** You can do that by clicking on the 3rd, 4th or 5th stars or smiley faces if you see them.

Also, your session does NOT close when leaving a positive rating, so you can continue to ask additional questions without additional charge. Thank you for your understanding.
