H4 Extension Impact - Shoplifing charge

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am charged with third degree shoplifting charge in NJ. After going to the court, the prosecutor told me that the charge will be amended to disorderly conduct and I will be entering into conditional dismissal program for disorderly conduct which is of 1 year which will end in Jan 2020. Now, since my H4 is expiring in June 2019, I will have to file my H4 extension now. However, since i am in conditional dismissal program means my case is open currently.

1. Will my case being open, can I file my H4 extension now with USCIS ? Will it impact my extension as my case is still open and I do not have final court disposition letter?

2. What all documents I should submit at the time for H4 extension as my case is pending?

3. Since my parents stay in India and say due to emergency I will have to travel to my home country, can I travel with my conditional dismissal going on? If yes, what all documents should I take along with me since I would not be having final court disposition letter?

4. Would you suggest to talk to the prosecutor and request for direct plead to disorderly conduct since I have to apply for my extension?

Thank you so much for your help in advance.

Thank you so much for your reply. However, do you think I can do my H4 extension even though my case is opened i.e. I am under conditional dismissal program for 1 year? Please note I would not be having final court disposition letter as the case is opened and not dismissed yet.
