Question regarding arrest & not convicted.

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok so I sent in the I-129F and had it returned to me because the I-129F form I had used was outdated and have to fill out the updated I-129F form that they just updated a few months ago as the G-325A is no longer being used. I just have a question regarding the new I-129F form. On the old one it didn't say, but now on this one it's saying if you've EVER been arrested or convicted. Well back in 2006 I was arrested for being in the car with my minor friend at the time who had drugs in his car, so they took us both in, but he later confessed that it was his (I never did any drugs and was unaware) and they ended up letting me go. I never went to court and was never charged with this, although it's still on my record. 

 

I'm just confused as to how to answer this question on the form or which boxes to check. I've included a picture of the section. Please help! Want to get this resubmitted asap. Thank you so much in advanced!

Yes, with the current I-129F you must disclose the arrest even if you were not convicted. You should provide court documents of the arrest showing that you were not charged.

You need to get a copy of the court record saying you were released and not charged. Were you fingerprinted? If so, you are definitely in the system. 

I already have the court documents for that and never went to court, was never charged with it as my "friend" confessed to it. I'm just not sure as to which boxes to check. Thank you.

Boxes 2.a-2.c should be "No" (assuming that was your only arrest). Box 4.a would be "Yes" with a short description in 4.b.
