Welcome to JustAnswer! I have 34 years experience as an immigration attorney and I am here to help resolve your immigration issue. Tackling these issues can sometimes get confusing. Should you need to chat on the phone or document review, I am able to do that for an additional cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested.

I would need to see a the certified copy of your disposition which should also include the police report. I can offer you a Premium Service to review this. When you pay for the premium service you will get a special box for private information and I am able to put my personal email address in that for you to send this to my email address. Do not post here as this it a public website and anyone could view what you post here.

How much is the premium service?
Immigration Lawyer: Judith Ludwic, Immigration Lawyer replied 5 months ago

I cannot post. For some reason I cannot make an offer either.

I do not feel ethically comfortable giving you an answer without seeing our actual disposition with police report. DV can under immigration laws raise to a felony level crime even though a misdemeanor level in the criminal court. My wrong answer could end up with you in a heap of trouble.

I will opt out.
