I'm a greencard holder married to a US citizen, was planning to apply for citizenship this year, and just got a DUI. My breathalyzer test was .20. I understand that applying for citizenship is currently out of the question. My question is, what should my goal be during this process if I am ever to have hope of applying for citizenship? I can handle losing my license, classes, community service, jail time. But what do I need to avoid for immigration purposes? Perhaps the question is, what will give me the possibility of one day having this charge "expunged"?
Expungement is not relevant for immigration purposes. Stay out of trouble, and when you complete your probation, apply for naturalization.
