Dear Customer ,

Thank You for posting your immigration law question today. I'm attorney Bill an experienced immigration lawyer assisting you.

Your criminal record isn't an automatic bar on admissibility to the US.

You can still apply for a visa or a waiver of inadmissibility under certain grounds if your criminal record is excluding you from the US.

Conviction of crimes or moral turpitude, aggravated felonies and multiple convictions do make you inadmissible to the US.

Multiple arrests or your three arrests don't equate to multiple conviction so you may still be eligible.

DO you have a copy of your conviction record ?

The law is stated here:

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/8/1182

Please follow up with me on your question as needed.

I'm an independent legal expert and rely on your positive feedback today to get a credit for my time.

You do this by rating 5*****, 4**** or better.

FIVE STARS or your rating is much appreciated in this regard.

Thanks

Attorney Bill
