Dismissed DV case

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am from America and I’m sponsoring my fiancé from Ghana. We already have the I-797 approval. And he has also been notified that his info is being sent to the office in Ghana so that he can do his interview. I have a DISMISSED domestic violence case from about 8 years ago. I included that information on the petition with supporting documents. Could ultimately We be rejected over a DISMISSED domestic violence case?

When you say "dismissed"---do you mean charges were dropped completely before any sort of court appearance, or "dismissed" as in you had to complete any court-ordered period of probation/anger-domestic violence classes as part of your plea for the charges to then be dismissed?  Just want to clarify.

 

Your fiance will likely be questioned regarding your charges at his interview---so make sure he is aware of the details if he's not already.

The District Attorney dismissed it himself after my 1st court date because he didn’t believe I did any of that

Honestly I don't see any problem here at all and you should be fine. I am saying this because I was in the same boat as you and there were no issues at all bringing my fiancé here.

Did they mention those things to your fiancé. If so how?

Oh they were asked about it. Which is actually pretty common because the CO wants to see if the beneficiary is aware of what happened especially if it is a conviction. So just inform your fiancé about what happened so that they are not blind sided at the interview.
