Customer Question
I have a question...

I have a question today one of my friend caught in theft of 270$ in a mall.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the U.S. government?

He was ordered to attend in the municipal court

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?

They have filled the criminal report No, not yet ! He is searching for the immigration lawyer he is an F1 student does this effect his education and immigration status ?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I mean i just wanted to know what actually happens if people on F1 visa are asked to attend the court ? how this effects the student life in US?

Thank you !

It will depend what happens at the court. It is important that your friend gets a good criminal attorney to fight the charges. If they can get them dismissed, then it will not be an issue at all. If they do not get them dismissed, it may be an issue the next time your friends goes out of the US to get a new visa stamp. But it should not affect their visa here in the US.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

My friend has accepted everything what he did ! but will there be chance to get it dismissed?
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 18 days ago

Yes, there is still a chance to get it dismissed because your friend has not been to court yet.

Please kindly remember the rating.
