I want to apply for GC for my husband. I am a US Citizen. He has no criminal charges but he does have tickets. He was in jail for some hours in 2011 for driving without a license in the 3rd degree but was not given a criminal charge only a fee that he needed to pay the court. Would this make the application process harder. Do I need to put this on his application?
"He was in jail for some hours in 2011 for driving without a license in the 3rd degree" likely means he was charged with a criminal law violation. Perhaps the initial charge was later reduced to a traffic ticket. In WA, persons who get traffic tickets are generally not put in jail.
You need to obtain the court file for the case and figure out what actually happened.
