    Please reflect on what you are saying: you wish to plead guilty to a quasi-criminal traffic offense without an attorney.

I recommend talking to an attorney prior to your plea.

    Your tentative legal research is legally correct that the effects of certain criminal pleas are fatal to immigration cases. DO NOT PLEAD to any criminal offenses, especially if the offense is felony until you have discuss any criminal consequences of such pleas with a good criminal and immigration attorneys. As they say you cannot unring the bell, and once an undocumented alien becomes an aggravated felon under the INA that person becomes statutorily inadmissible for any prospective...

    I could recommend the only logical and legally appropriate thing for your cousin: hire a competent criminal defense attorney with knowledge of immigration law at once before he pleads to a criminal charge that will have an immediate legal effect on his immigration status in the United States. In his case it is not a luxury to have an attorney, it is a necessity.

    Based on your initial description, you may be eligible to adjust your status to a Permanent Legal Resident without leaving the U.S., absent any precluding criminal history, and based on your bona fide present marriage to a US Citizen. Be as it may, we may both agree that such process should be initiated, prepared and presented legally correctly to avoid any complications with the adjustment.
