He got arrested, he was drunk and we got into a fight so he was arrested for domestic violence but not convicted
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Was he out of status at the time?

And did he admit to the office or take a plea deal in order to lower his charges or get it dismissed?

Thank you for your patience. Your answer is below. When you get your answers, you will be asked to give a rating - 4 or 5 stars are appreciated. This is important because this is how I credit for doing my job. Don't worry, you can still ask related follow-up questions even after you've given a rating. Thank you!

ANSWER: He needs to get "certified copies of court records" from the clerk of the court in which his case was being handled.

As far as the immigration case, you would get married. File the I-130 petition. Then he would make a request with the government attorney at the immigration court to jointly reopen his removal case. If there is no basis that prohibits him from staying, he would ask the judge to consider that he is now married to a US citizen and with the approved I-130, consider reversing or cancelling his removal and adjusting his status or sending the case to the USCIS for adjustment of status based on marriage to a US citizen.

I highly recommend working with an attorney who has reviewed his records and his criminal case to see if it is possible.

I hope that answers your questions.

▼ RATING REQUIRED! ▼ Please remember to click on 4 or 5 stars (★★★★) on your computer screen. This is important because this is how I get credit for doing my job.

A BONUS is also appreciated if you feel I've earned one today. And remember, you can still ask follow-up questions if you need to.

If you want to talk on the phone, I am available to do that for an additional fee.

And if you have new questions in the future, you should write FOR JAMES in the question. That way, I become your personal Professional.

Thank you!

Thank you!
