3 misdemeanor charges

Recommended Posts

Hi 

 
My previous co.worker have a restraining order against me and i violated without knowing it, Now I have been charged with 3 charges(273.6a, 273.6a and 166.c) but my attorney is saying as second offense it hard to get the case dismissed, he will try to reduce the charges. I am H4, My H4 went to RFE, later denied and we amended it and got approved for one year. Can you please tell me what chances will the case be  dismissed. please suggest.
 
I have 8 year old girl and my hubby is on H1b.
 
I am much worried, hopeless and depressed for past one year.
 
Thank you so much  for your response.
 
your response will give me some hope.

Without knowing the facts, it would seem you need to believe your lawyer. Assuming your spouse will be on your side, you should discuss the Immigration consequences if any with an Immigration lawyer. You should also talk to a few Good Lawyers in the field who will be able to give you their idea.

per se violating a restraining order should not make you deportable. Since you indicate the possibility of multiple charges, you need to speak to an Immigration Lawyer in addition to your existing lawyer.

@pontevecchio Thank you so much for your response.

My attorney says he would submit motion for diversion (1001.95) without pleading guilty, as per diversion agreement if i finish my mental health counselling(10 sessions) some amount of community service(20 hours). If I finish all the terms, my charges will be dismissed.

I am so concerned that if this diversion will affect my immigration status and future immigration proceedings.

Can you please provide your inputs on this?

Do you have a immigration attorney as well? If not please hire one and discuss immigration consequence. With the limited information you post on the forum, it is impossible for anyone to advise anything. Even if we can, ours is not a legal advise.
