first of all my english isn't that good ..but i am learning. I had my citizenship interview yesterday and the examiner told me that there was missing evidence. I needed to get a certified document from my local court in order to continue my immigration case. I just got done mailing the documents today through the mail. What i am really asking is, is this going to deny my citizenship? I was convicted of a 2nd degree misdemeanor of last year. Ihit a parked car and took off and only having a permit not a valid drivers license. He told me they will decided about it and let me know through mail.
As soon as you have a criminal issue that intertwines with your immigration status, you really should discuss it with a lawyer before proceeding. While likely not an issue, there are twists in the immigration law that make some misdemeanors into deportable offenses. Please retain counsel.
The immigration consequences of convictions depend on the exact language of the statute under which the conviction took place.
You need to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, including the court disposition and the charging documents, in order to advise you, and handle the case.
