In this episode, attorney Jacob J. Sapochnick, discusses one of our most frequently asked questions: Can petty theft affect my application for a green card?
Important points to consider:
– Be truthful and disclose any crime on the I-485 application. Failure to do so could be a problem.
– In most cases in most jurisdictions it will not be a problem as long as it’s fully disclosed.
– If it’s one offence, and as long as all the fines and rehabilitation programs has been completed, there is actually an exception.
