  1. Hello, I got a dui in 2007 in new jersey. my drivers license got suspended for 7 months. i am planning to file for my US citizenship soon. has anyone of you faced similar situation and applied for us citizenship in new jersey? can you please share your experience? thank you.
  2. Hi all, I am currently in the green card application process and I had my interview in my home country on 5/13. I am embarrassed that I had a DUI record in US in 2015, I had finished the community service, courses and paid the fine before leaving US in 2016. During the interview process, the officer who interviewed me said that the DUI case is ok, physical exam (including diagnosis of an alcohol problem) is ok too. He returned me my passport and asked me to wait for the notice. I received a phone call from the embassy this Monday (6/3/2019), they told me that they could not execute the "approval" operation in the system because of my DUI record, they had asked the bureau in US to clear that record then they could approve my visa. (I checked the ceac system it shows "Ready" status.) Please execuse the inaccuracy of language, I translate the conversation to English myself. I am not sure if this is the normal process? Does anyone have the similar experience? About how long it is going to take? Thank you for any kind suggestions or sharing experience.
  3. Hey guys, we finally sent in our I-129f after 5 months of preparation and hesitation. Our problem was the following: My fiance (petitioner) had 3 DUIs and 1 MIP charges (young and stupid, 10 years ago). They occured in different states. The I-129f asks for certified court records for all these charges. He was able to get the certified court records from 2 DUI and the MIP. Whats missing is one DUI record. It happened in Colorado and he is currently in Michigan. He talked to Colorado several times and had it sent to his correct address multiple times, but the records never arrived there. So we just decided to send it in without that one missing record and wrote a letter stating the circumstances. What do you guys think, will this cause a RFE? Of course we know it CAN trigger a RFE. Do you have experiences with that topic? Anything you could share? x Anne
  4. Hi everyone, I am applying for Citizenship & I need some help on part 12 number 29. I got a DUI in 2013 and don't know what to put on that section. Do I just put charged for DUI /PROBATION / DISMISSAL ??? Anyone else here that filled out their own N400 application with a DUI and got their Citizenship??
  5. A permanent resident with 2 DUIs in california. Both DUIs are misdemeanors. 1st one occured in 2013 and 2nd one happened in 2015. I am on probation for the 2nd one which ends in 2019. When can i apply for citizenship? Can I apply in 2019 after my probation expires since it will have been 4 years since conviction (The statutory period to show GMC is 3 years is you are married to a citizen) OR do i need to wait till 2022 which is 3 years after my probation ends? I am getting missed messages even from immigration attorneys on this one. I consulted with 2 immigration attorneys. 1st immigration attorney said you can apply as soon as your probation ends as long as it has been 3 years since conviction. The other one says its 3 years after your probation ends. I am confused because everyone says consult with an immigration attorney and I did just that. However, they both have different answers. Also, I want to know if 2 DUIs make me deportable or inadmissible. Both attorneys said they don't make me deportable/inadmissible but USCIS can decide i am inadmissible due to alcoholism aka habitual drunkard. What steps can i take to prove I am not a drunkard?
  6. Hey guys, so my American husband has a DUI from 2011. He completed his AA meetings around then. He finished his community service hours in 2016. We know he can't drive across the border. But we're wondering what we need to do for him to fly. I was reading about the Temporary Resident Permit and Criminal Rehabilitation. But I'm wondering if someone with more experience can point us to the right option. Thanks!!
  7. Has anyone had experience with a visa being denied for 2 DUI's? My husband has 2 DUI's on his record last one over 5 years ago. Not an alcoholic, no medical issue. Just bad choices on weekends. I am worried that his visa will be denied. Anybody else out there dealing with this or gone through this?
  8. Hi there, my partner has some prior court convictions and has been to the court and received the appropriate stamps etc., for the paperwork, as required with the submission with the I-129F. Since these are copies that are being submitted, and I am seeing my partner over the next few weeks, should I bring the original documents back to the UK with me and take to the embassy interview when required? Thanks.
