Naturalization immigration if a case/charge no longer shows on my backgorund after a plea in abeyance expired, do I still disclose it on n 400?
A dismissal due to a plea in abeyance is still considered a conviction for immigration purposes, even if the courts no longer have records of your conviction. You must not only fully disclose this on the N-400, you also must provide certified court copies of the arrest record, sentence, and discharge.
When it comes to naturalization, any criminal arrests or convictions must be fully analyzed. I can not stress enough the importance of consulting with an immigration attorney before you submit your N-400.
