non citizen spouse charged with crime - help

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, any assistance would be appreciated. My sister's husband who is a non us-citizen was recently charged (not arrested, he received a summons in the mail and called the court to inquire about the summons) with theft $500 plus in the state of Georgia. THe week he was to change employer he was terminated and his boss called the new company and told them things about my brother-in-law. He was on H1B visa. Of course the new company revoked their job offer and he is now unemployed. This is the first time he is being taken to court or any run in with the law. His aos interview (based on marriage to a US citizen) is scheduled in 2 weeks and he is not sure what to do. Are there any similar situations that anyone may have come across? He has since hired a criminal attorney and was offered probation before judgement. Can you please advise him what he should do and what can potentially happen if he discloses this to the immigration officer at the interview. Will the charge show up in his security check by the FBI? I appreciate any assistance.

He should absolutely get the criminal lawyer to consult with an immigration lawyer before accepting any agreement.

Seek an immigration lawyer. Perhaps the defense attorney can give a referral. No one on here will be able to give you the guidance you need.
