My dad is a permanent resident and wants to become a US citizen. The problem is that he has a DUI on his record. He did his classes and paid fines already. He also had some problems with child protective services and also did parenting classes, domestic violence classes and paid fines. Is he stilleligible for citizenship? Does he need a lawyer?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Yes, he difinitely needs to consult a lawyer before deciding whether to apply for citizenship. It might be considered that he lacks 'good moral character' required for naturalization, especially if crimes were committed within the statutory period. Also, some crimes can be considered deportable offence (e.g. domestic violence).
