AOS in a Week. Wife Officially Arrested Tonight

How do I handle this crazy situation?

We have our AOS in a week. My wife was driving tonight with her daughter and the police turned on their lights. My wife didn't quite understand what to do and she didn't pull over and then I think she just kinda froze and drove straight for 5 minutes at the speed limit. The cops rightly didn't like this and they ended up pulling guns on her and her daughter and placed them in handcuffs. Once they understood that their was a language barrier they relaxed. They ended giving her an arrest and release and brought her home to me. They gave her 4 tickets - driving without a valid license (which I believe is not true because she had a russian license that is valid), failure to have insurance (which will be erased because she had valid insurance), failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, and impending traffic. The police were very cool about the situation as they could have really thrown her in jail and charged her with much worse things. But, now we have a small mess on our hands.

She has to go to court to deal with this in 3 weeks but our AOS interview is in 1 week. How do we handle this since now she has been officially arrested? Will this cause any problems?

Thanks.

David

I'm sorry to hear about this mishap so close to your interview!

Bring whatever documentation you have of the arrest and proof that she does have a license as well as insurance.

Explain everything honestly if they ask about any arrests.

In my opinion it should not be a big deal because they gave her tickets for traffic violations, which is one of the exceptions on the yes/no questions in i-485.

"Been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, convicted, fined, or imprisoned for breaking or violating any law or ordinance, excluding traffic violations?."

Good luck!

According to this her Russian license was good for 60 days.

Insurance, well that would depend if there is a requirement to have a valid license.
