I485 with shoplift dismissed case.


Recommended Posts

Hi All, It was shameful event; but i was charged with shoplift. The case has been dismissed because i was sent to diversion program. I wasn't convicted for charge. Now my priority date is current, and my employer is ready for applying AOS. But I believe i still have to say 'yes' to some criminal background question in form. Can you please share your knowledge if you/your known-one come across this kind of situation; whether I will have any trouble getting EAD and then GC? Is there any thing I can be prepared with to face it?

Thanks, Lisa.

It won't be an issue, but you need to answer the question correctly and truthfully. If you want to keep the matter confidential, you may want to hire your own attorney. Criminal matters usually require a good attorney to go over your documents and give the most appropriate anwers.
