K1 visa & criminal record

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

This is my first time posting on this site & I'm new to this whole process. My boyfriend & I want to be married & want to start this process. We want to hire a lawyer, and have already spoken with one. He is wanting to see the certified police report before letting me know if my boyfriend's criminal record will be something that will hinder this process. My boyfriend is 25, and was arrested in the beginning of the year for assault on a police officer. He was outside of a bar & was drunk, and pushed the cop. He didn't have any jail time & was assigned 8 weeks of probation, where he had to wear a tag on his ankle. We're currently waiting on the police certificate so we can start this process with the lawyer. In the meantime, I thought there might be someone out there who has a similar situation and could provide some insight. As this is not classified as a "crime of moral turpitude," I do not think it will prevent his K1 visa. However, I am worried that it will delay processing and/or present problems when it comes to the interview. Any help would be much appreciated!

i guess the first question that needs to be answered is who is the beneficificary and who is the US citizen?

Secondly, what was he charged with and did he plead guilty?

Good luck

Sorry! I am the US citizen & he is the beneficiary. I have no criminal record. He was charged with simple assault & he plead guilty. There was no possible jail time for the nature of his charge. I believe the maximum he could have gotten was community service, but he only ended up with 8 weeks probation.
