I have been arrest 4 times. One for assault, dismissed. Second was simple assault, dismissed.
Third time assault, dismissed and the fourth for assault, kidnapping, sexual assault, also dismissed.
Yes i know this looks really bad, however, in all cases I proved my innocence. I repeat, all cases were dismissed. What obstacles will I face? Will I face deportation if I apply? Would I have a problem re-entering the country if i visit another country?
I thank you all in advance.
You need to consult with an Immigration lawyer in your area to gather your criminal records and review. You also need to consult with a criminal defense attorney to see if you have an expungement statute you can use to seal these records. I have edited your practice area to IMMIGRATION so more avvo lawyers might respond.
Order an FBI rap sheet to prove that all these cases were dismissed. If you are a permanent resident, i'd recommend consulting with an attorney before filing the naturalization application to make sure you meet the good moral character requirement. However, you should get approved to be a citizen with the circumstances listed above.
The USCIS has a right to ask about the arrests. If you admit to any of the offenses under oath, then you may have to wait from three to five years after the admitted offense to file for naturalization, again. If you are concerned or confused, then schedule an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.
