Misdemeanor dismissal effect on Green card process
In 2004 I was arrested for shoplifting. The charges were subsequently dismissed and I successfully completed the MIP program. I am planning to apply for expungement. During our recent H4 extentions, I have truthfull been stating my arrest. Recently our labor came through. We are now applying for the next stage and EAD. If I expunge my arrest, do I still have to say I was arrested on the immigration forms?
How long does an expungement take?
Can I apply for expungement myself?
If I still have to state I was arrested on the form, then will this affect my husbands green card process? Will I be refused EAD?
Thanks for your help.
