Asked about 1 year ago - Cupertino, CA

Is a background check normal in case if somebody says yes to " Have you ever been arrested or convicted for any offense or crime, even though subject of a pardon, amnesty, or other similar action? "
I am worried if it takes more then 2 weeks to complete then a person can be stuck ?

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . You have to always be truthful in a visa application. If an answer "yes", then provide a Memorandum of Law from an immigration attorney, together with a court certified final disposition of your case.

    The lawyer's memo should explain why you should not be deemed inadmissible, despite the previous arrest and/or conviction.
