Application for citizenship requirement is to provide a court certified copy of the complete arrest record and disposition. Do I need to provide those documents if was in immigration proceedings? or it applies only for the courts other then immigration, like criminal and etc.

Once you get a permanent residence card and send 5 years in the US with that card you will be able to apply for citizenship. Your US citizen husband may be able to sponsor you for a green card, so please contact an...Read more »
