    Negotiations in federal court are very different from negotiations in state court. In state court, a prosecutor and defense attorney typically will agree on a specific sentence and you will only enter the plea if the judge is going to accept that negotiated sentence. In Federal court, the negotiations between the Assistant U.S. Attorney and the defense attorney usually involve what charge the person will plead to, but the sentence is left to the Federal Judge to determine at the time of...

    As an attorney who practices both criminal and immigration law, I will try to answer your question as it relates to both areas of law. To become a U.S. citizen, among other criteria, you must establish that you have "good moral character" for the last five years, or for the last three years if your citizenship petition is based on a marriage to a U.S. citizen. Some criminal convictions will be an absolute bar to citizenship. Others will simply be factored into the totality of the...

    I have a different perspective to answer your question. A sealed or expunged record may become a big headache for you during the immigration process. You usually have the burden of proof during the immigration process and federal law does not recognize sealings or expunctions for immigration purposes. This means that you will have to reveal prior arrests and convictions during any immigration process and you will have the burden to provide certified records, related to those arrests and/or...

    When a person applies for Citizenship, USCIS will look at whether that person is "admissible" and/or "deportable." They will also look at the last five years to determine whether the applicant has "good moral character." A criminal conviction, even a withhold of adjudication, can have significant consequences in the naturalization process. No matter how minor the conviction, nor how long ago it happened, you should consult with an attorney that is experienced in both immigration law and...

    Your husband may be facing serious criminal consequences and serious immigration consequences. The two systems are seperate, however there is crossover. Make sure that you retain an attorney in criminal field who understands immigration law. For example, it may be beneficial to post bond in the criminal case to force ICE to execute the detainer on immigration hold so you can seek a bond on the immigration case. However, your husband may be subject to mandatory detention and not entitiled to...

  6. I forgot to ask "Who is a co-sponsor"? And how can I find a co-sponsor? (I wanna marry a USC and also get permanent residency)

    A co-sponsor is someone who can file an affidavit of support on your behalf if the sponsor's (in your case, your USC fiancé's) income does not meet the 125% of the federal poverty line (100% if in the military). The federal poverty level depends on the number of people that live in the co-sponsor's household. The affidavit of support is a binding contract between the co-sponsor and the government. The co-sponsor is financially liable to the government if you become a "public charge," or in...

    Marriage fraud is a federal crime taken very seriously by both ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and the U.S. Attorney's Office (Federal prosecutors). The U.S. Attorney's Office can go after both the non-U.S. Citizen and the U.S. Citizen. Marriage fraud can also have serious immigration consequences for the non-U.S. Citizen. Before talking to any law enforcement, immigration enforcement agents , or other government agents, you should consult with an attorney who practices both criminal...

    The Clerk of Court is the record keeper of all documents filed with the court. Go to the Clerk of Court in the area where your fiancé's case was prosecuted and order a "certified disposition." The clerk should issue you a document that states what the outcome was in his case and it will be accompanied with a seal which is a certification of the authenticity of the document. The Clerk will charge a small fee to order the certified disposition.

    When applying for citizenship, the government will look at the last 5 years of your life to determine whether you have "good moral character." Good moral character is defined in the Immigration and Nationality Act, case law, and administrative memorandums. Certain criminal offenses can preclude a finding of good moral character. Even if the case was dismissed, if the government (USCIS) determines that you made an admission under the law to the elements of the offense, they can make a...
