Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here to see my ratings information) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. The answer to your question is that you will probably not lose your visa status. Generally, to lose your visa status, the crimes have to be of such a nature that you would be a risk to national security or have "poor moral character." In your case, shoplifting from Walmart is hardly going to be an issue, particularly if you were not arrested or charged. Accordingly, although Walmart has your information, it is probable it is just to ensure that if you attempt to steal sometime in the future, they have your information on file.
Follow up questions are free, so please feel free to ask away. You can also click here in the future to request me individually. If you don’t have any additional questions, were you satisfied with my service today?
