    My colleagues are correct. Bottom line for "immigration purposes" is that your case was dismissed. Not a conviction for "immigration purposes". Will not affect your LPR renewal. Not likely affect your citizenship, although if there was an arrest you will be questioned about it. More information will be needed: exact date on incident, your complete immigration and criminal histories, exact date of the disposition of the case. You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney...

    No problem. You could file a petition on his behalf now (as an lpr). That petition will become an "immnediate relative petition" once you obtain your US citizenship. Once the petition is upgraded he will be able to adjust his status to that of a legal permanent resident. He may need a waiver for his criminal case but should not have any problems as long as he is otherwise admissible. I suggest that you get the help of an EXPERIENCED immigration attorney.

    If you are a US citizen, if she came in legally and if she is otherwise admissible she could adjust her status via your petition for alien relative. As far as updating the VAWA petition, she will have to call or notify the service center. Sent on the Sprint® Now Network from my BlackBerry

    Unfortunately there is nothing you could do (since you don't wish to follow the cancellation or consular processing route). Now IF the latese USCIS proposal becomes a reality you have a good chance to qualify. This proposal will allow persons in your situation obtain waivers WITHOUT leaving the US. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney and KEEP UPDATED with the latest immigration news. ---------------------------------------- This email was sent by: Avvo, Inc. 1501 4th...

    1) If you were brought to the US legally (and you are otherwise admissible) you MAY be able to adjust your status to that of a legal permanent resident (if you marry your US citizen girlfriend and the marriage is bonafide). 2) If you were NOT brought to the US legally, and your marriage is bonafide: you can still consular process and obtain your green card (but will likely need a waiver of inadmissibility granted beforehand) or adjust your status if you are grandfathered under INA 245i. 3) Do...
