DUI/DWI in H1B status (no valid visa)

Recommended Posts

Hi , here is a precise note is status , issue & question 

Current status : H1B visa approved until Jan-2020. No stamped visa (applied extension from US after visa expiration) 

Charges : Caught on Dui , charged for DWI/DUI (first offense) . Working with attorney and not yet convicted 

Question :

1) have not receive any notice on H1B revocation (assuming as I don’t have one ) . Correct if I am right 

2) will my approved H1 (until Jan-2020)  be revoked as well ? 

3) Incase if I am convicted , possible visa extension issues in Jan-2020.  if I clear all penalties/fines before next extension, will that help ? Any suggestion how to handle .

You will be fine. It is a lot of hassle but not end of everything as some people say 

It becomes easier if the interval between incident and stamping is longer. 

So wait it out as long as you can but it is not obligatory

It really helps if you are able to say that you are teetotal when you go to medical
