If case is dismissed no need to worry.. if you go visa interview/stamping, you will have to carry the certified court disposition and an immigration lawyer memo letter.

at port of entry/ visa stamping this incident would pop up and asked, you have to tell truth to them.. Have court disposition adn immigration memo letter from your Immi lawyer..

I am on the same boat, can you please assist. I was charged under the Petit Larceny 155.25 but the case was dismissed under section 170.55 and the case is even sealed. I did not have to do any community service. According to the recent post of yours as below, do I still fall under any of this category. According the judge the case was dismissed and sealed so Was I still convicted according to the INA?

I am in the phase of transferring the H1B visa to the new employer so do I have to reveal this to them? Will there be any possible issue under the current circumstances. as I am afraid the new company may back up if I will reveal this to them due to the immigration. Please note that the case is already sealed and closed.

Please guide me.
