Panic About Removing Conditions in Light of Misdemeanor

I have a question for VisaJourney.

My husband received a conditional discharge for a misdemeanor assault charge. He did NOT touch me. Nor was it ever even suggested he did. We were fighting and he said hateful words. I sincerely regret the police were called, but they were. We have attended counseling, and it has been a wonderful thing for our marriage.

My question is, will we hit a snag when it comes time for removing conditions in a few months? Our attorney said we would not, but he is not an immigration attorney per se.

Any advice for us? We are in complete panic mode.

Thanks in advance.

This was not a domestic violence issue, it was a minor assault issue, there was no violence!

If there is no conviction then there's no issue.

Getting a lawyer is an option you may or may not want to explore. Since this case has already taken place and, from what I read, your husband pleaded guilty. He got a conditional discharge and you guys attended counseling. You really have no choice but to disclose everything. You will want to make sure you have all court documentation and counseling documentation available should the IO wish to see any of it. There really is no need to worry about it just make sure you have any and all documentation/evidence with you to show if asked for it.

Best of luck!

You do not need a lawyer does your husband have a certified copy of disposition? he ll certainly be asked for one, if you already have it submit it with your papers as well and you're good to Go ...Habibi you wont go back to Egypt lol Best of luck
