Prison for 5 yrs , 40 years ago

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good day to all,

My co workers was prison for 5 years for accidentally killing his brother when he was 18 yrs old and that was 40 years ago.. He's been clean after that. Now he is talking to an asian girl and wants to meet her and if things work out right he will file for K1. With his past record can he even file or just waste money to do that?

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

His past record may make it harder to travel to meet her. Just like people have to disclose their convictions to come to the US , USC's have to do the same to travel elsewhere. If it was a single accidential event 40 years ago he should be ok although it will cause some extra scrutiny

This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Could be a problem, 40 years ago, long time and no additional, problems. Maybe a review to get the conviction set aside, from your brief note it seems he did not get a good attorney. Each country looks at convictions differently, see and immigration attorney.

In Arizona its hot hot hot.

He should be fine, but should make sure his fiancee knows all about the case and conviction/ prison time, as she may be asked about it at interview.

I thought the IMBRA looks at the petitoners criminal past and they could be denied for violent crimes. This was an accident so may not be a problem. But the CR1 is a safer bet just in case because the IMBRA doesnt apply.
