Misdemeanor for domestic voilence

Recommended Posts


Hello I got convicted with misdemeanor class A for domestic violence in Texas. I am currently on H1B and my employer will be filing labour next month for my green card process, and I am planning to initiate my H1B visa extension next year. could someone explain if my employer will know that I have a criminal record while filing labor? if yes i wanted to stop my labor process and secure my job. can someone explain how i can secure my job and what will be the best outcome going forward to avoid all this immigration issues.

You will have to disclose this to the employer visa team.

As for "avoiding immigration issues", you should have thought about that before hitting your spouse. Domestic violence is absolutely never justified.

And you don't even seem to show remorse for your actions.

Many states follow the classification system for assigning punishment for such criminal charges. In the classification system, the state sub categorizes crimes into classes like A, B, C, D, and E and some into levels like 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Class A or Level 1 includes the most serious crimes and the seriousness of the crime goes on decreasing as the level increases. The subcategorization helps in assigning the sentence for the offense.

However, some states do not subcategorize felony, instead, they assign a sentence for every criminal charge based on its seriousness.
