2001 NJS 2c:35-10(a) Possession of a controlled substance -PTI completed and did not plead guilty and the charge was dismissed. 2005 NJS 2C:24-4 Child endangerment, 2nd degree and NJS 9:6-3 Child abuse and neglect , 2nd degree. The charge was amended and then I plead guilty to Lewdness, a disorderly persons offense NJS 2C:14-4 (a). Probation 2 years. 2011 Domestic Violence Battery Charge was dismissed by State Attorney. No further action. Never Plead Guilty. How will this affect my renewal in 2015? I do not have representation at this time.
In order to determine the actual risk of removability, I would need to review the conviction record. I analyze the record under the grounds of removability of the Immigration and Nationality Act. I also analyze to see if there are any waivers available. Please obtain a full consultation. Preserving your status in the U.S. is one of the most important things. Regards.
You should consult with an experienced immigration attorney. For each case, bring to him/her certified copies of the police arrest report, the charging document, any plea agreement, any diversion program agreement (if applicable) and proof of completion of diversion program (if applicable), final judgment and sentence (if applicable - if there was no diversion program), proof of completion of sentence. With the green card renewal application you will be fingerprinted and USCIS will likely see everything. You need to know ahead of time what the consequences could be. You can also run your own personal background check with the FBI using fingerprint cards completed by local law enforcement to see what USCIS will see when they run their background check. Consult with a lawyer.
