Need opinions about my Criminal History

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Greetings everybody

Let me give you more information about me before I ask for help.

Became PR on 7-2009

conditions removed earlier this year.

I am about to file for my citizenship on May 2012 through my lawyer, who after reading my "criminal record" advised me to wait before I file because in his opinion it is possible that my case will be denied based on these charges. Another lawyer advised me not to worry and to continue with the application.

Here is the list of charges

Driving while license invalid charge (2004)due to unpaid traffic fines (DISMISSED) after showing the court that the fines have been paid

Driving while license invalid charge (2006)becaue i paid the tickets but didnot pay the DPS online surcharges(6 months adjudicated probation)

Driving while license invalid charge (2007)due to 24 dollar balance left on the online surchage (30 day adjudicated probation)

Clean driving record since then (NO tickets NO surcharges)I was 19,21 and 22 years old back then.

All of these cases are misdiminor Bs and they make me look like a habitual criminal !

Thankyou all so much for any suggestions.

(Department of public safety (DPS) surcharge for points deduction on Drivers license in Texas)

Considering all these things happened well before you became an LPR, I don;t think you'll have any issues getting citizenship.
