I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any other complications.
The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
A: A domestic violence charge is a serious matter. A dismissal in a state criminal court can be interpreted as a “conviction” for immigration purposes.
I highly recommend that you visit with an experienced immigration attorney before you proceed to request any immigration benefits.
A: That fact in and of itself should not prevent an undocumented immigrant from applying for permanent residence. Without knowing all the facts, though, we cannot say if there are other details in your case that could change that analysis. You really should consult with an immigration attorney so that you can have answers that are specific to your case.
