I had a DUI in '09. I went for my immigration interview yesterday. the immigration officer stated that i should expect my card or a letter for more information in 14days pending a background check. I gave them the disposition from the court. Is this a good sign or not? I thought they'd have done these background checks already
The interviewer may need a supervisor to review the application simply because you have a conviction. While a DUI conviction is not typically a deportable offense, your application could be denied as a matter of discretion because of the DUI.
Right now you should not worry. Be patient for a few weeks.
