Buut I am not convicted, My wife filed a dowary case and collect a good amount from me to settlemet and for divorce.
My Lawer in India said that there is no arrest record available in india. But If I say yes in arrest question, My visa will be rejected
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 11 months ago

That is up to you. I cannot tell you to lie. If you know that you have been arrested, then the correct answer is YES. If you feel that it was not an actual arrest, since it was not a criminal case, then you can answer no and take your chances that they do not have record of it.
