H4 visa extension with arrest


Recommended Posts

Hello members,

My wife was arrested last year for shop-lifting.

She was let off with a class and court fees. My H1B is up for extension and need to file her H4 extension. There is a question on the form asking if she was ever arrested.

If we say yes on the form, will this hurt our chances of getting an extension.

Expert please respond.

I would say that the VO in India generally does not do a background check. If applying from US there might be a chance of running background check.

This is my personal opinion and NOT a professional advice. you will have to consult an Immigration Attorney. you can also consult Attorney Murthy as well.

This can be serious issue. You 'll have to act wisely.

Good Luck!!!!
