Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now.
If you pled guilty or no contest to a simple battery, then even if you did not do more than just pay a fine, you have been convicted of a misdemeanor and you have a US criminal record. You must disclose that on your visa application.
Sorry for the delay, Tatiana. I was away from the computer.
I don't have a copy of the visa application. Probably what they want is what he was charged with, what he pled guilty to and what his sentence was. However, he should read the directions carefully and answer exactly what the government asks for, no more and no less. He has the document you attached and he can show that if they want further details.
Just checking in to see if you need more help or any clarification of my answer. If so, please reply here on this question thread.
