Hi,

We are getting ready to file our I-751 and unfortunately about 3 weeks ago, we went to a concert and my hubby got arrested for "public intoxication", we just went to the court and paid a fine, so it is a minor infraction, a misdemeanor (sp) like a traffic ticket, but nevertheless he was arrested.. So do we answer this question as yes and then provide details or no??

Thanks for your help!

Always tell the truth, so yes.


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Hi Nowthatimetu,

I'm sorry that this happened and caused some hardship for your husband and your family. Nevertheless, glad that you both got this sorted out in court recently...

As for the I-751, the instructions say, in regards to court-related matters:

"If you have ever been arrested or detained by any law enforcement officer for any reason, submit (any and/or all of these, as pertains to your situiation):

1) An original official statement by the arresting agency or applicable court order confirming that no charges are filed.

2) An original or court-certified copy of the complete arrest record and/or disposition for each incident (dismissal order, conviction record or acquittal order)

3)An original or court-certified copy of your sentencing record for each incident, and evidence that you have completed your sentence, specifically: a)An original or certified copy of your probation or parole record or b)Evidence that you completed an alternative sentencing program, or rehabilitative program set aside, sealed, expiurged or otherwise removed from your record

4)An original or court-certified copy of the court order vacating, setting aside, sealing, expurging or otherwise removing the arrest or conviction

5)An original statement from the court that no record exists of your arrest or conviction."

Either way, for immigration purposes at the I-751 stage and at the N-400/Citizenship stage, you have to submit the above paperwork for this court related matter, and to tell the truth about it to immigration officials when asked on immigration forms and/or in-person interviews.

Hope this helps. Good luck on your legal situation and in the rest of your immigration journey too.
