    Answered . I agree with my colleague that you should consult an experienced immigration attorney. This is especially true before you enter any plea arrangement. The impact this criminal matter will have on your green card application will depend upon the final outcome of the case. It will hinge on what you crime you are convicted of, sentence imposed, admissions you made, etc.
