H1B with Arrest Record

Recommended Posts

I was arrested for a driving incident, possibly because I was over speed limit.

However, DA reduced it to "Careless driving" which is a fine-only class-B traffic violation (not a crime).

  1. Is my visa automatically revoked? I have not received any email from any consulate.
     
  2. Will I get to know when boarding flight to US, or after landing in US?
     
  3. Will my next H1B extension/renewal be denied due to this arrest, even though I have an approved I-140.

Thanks in advance.

You are being very coy. If arrested for speeding then you need to specify the aggravating circumstances. What else happened that you were arrested rather than getting a ticket?  Was any alcohol involved even peripherally?

No there was absolutely no alcohol involved, and they did not even do any alcohol-test on me. I fully cooperated with the police.

I am not sure why I was arrested. Possibly because there were other adult passengers in my car?

Were you given citation & then release or were fingerprinted & booked as part of arrest?

If you are fingerprinted then the USCIS knew about your arrest

Most states would arrest you if you go over 100 or go 80 over 35 speed limit. Was this the case ? What was your speed and the speed limit.
