It is not entirely true that you cannot have a criminal background. There are certain crimes that will disqualify you. Since they were dismissed, you might be ok, but it depends on whether you went trough a deferred prosecution agreement or pretrial intervention, in which case you admitted guilt. It also depends on whether the battery was domestic. It also depends on other things. Please see an attorney in your area.See question
I had a grant theft withheld adjudication and sealed the record. I also returned my green card to the immigration office in a subsequent visit to the US.. But I have to visit US early next year (2016) and need to know if I can do this now as I ...
Many questions going on here: a grand theft may or may not be a CIMT, depending on the actual record, so we cannot answer that based on your post. An Immigration lawyer will need to analyze it and determine if a waiver is available for a non-immigrant in your situation.
Further, returning your green card may or may not mean that you are still a green card holder, so if you actually abandoned your residency by signing the forms, your options are different than if you did not. Again, an immigration lawyer will be able to help you, but may require a FOIA.
You will have to go to embassy with or without a waiver if you apply for any visa. The issue is should you apply for a visa (and perhaps a waiver, if available).
Yes, you will need a lawyer. You should run from any lawyer guessing on a chance of success; it is not only unethical, but unprofessional. Lastly, how long it takes depends on how fast you can produce the documents, how fast you retain the lawyer, if a FOIA is needed, and the processing time for waiver and embassy appointment. Way too many variables.See question
I have two misdemeanor charges in theft, both within three years. One dismissed by pretrial diversion program, and one by compromise, so both without conviction. Last time I renewed my student visa I had to go to the American Consulate and be inte...
Pretrial diversion requires you to admit guilt to be admitted into the program, therefore it is a conviction for immigration purposes. I don't know what "by compromise" means since we don't have such a thing in my jurisdiction (Florida). It may be a conviction as well. You will have to attend the interview each and every time you are required. Stating on an application that you have not been convicted if in fact you were, could seriously affect you in the future. Since you are mistaken about your criminal record, I urge you to hire an attorney.See question
In my country we use two last names (father's and mother's) - my legal name in my country is Maria Perez Rodriguez. When I got married in the US, I did not acquire my husband's last name but dropped one my original last names (Rodriguez) Thus, in ...
Just be prepared to show the name change (marriage certificate, social security, passport, green card, notice of approval from USCIS, etc..) and you will be fine.See question

Getting married that soon after entry creates a presumption of fraud. I am truly hopeful your friend is not an immigration lawyer. First, it is the wrong advice. Second, you should only take advise from a lawyer. Please hire an attorney to help you before you regret not doing it. It will cost you way more later.See question
Two months before my 2nd anniversary. So I got a 2yrs conditional greencard.Now we have so much problems that she filed a divorce. Do I lose my green card as soon as she filed the divorce or after divorce is finalized. And can I file waiver to USC...
For the first two years, you will have the conditional green card. Before it expires, and IF the divorce is final, file for removal of conditions in the 90 day period. My strong advise is to get a lawyer; it is not an easy process.See question
My advance parole was approve .but I'm scare to leave the country , I had a misdeminor in 2007 for shoplifting can my re entry be deny ?
Yes, they can and most likely will. Shoplifting is a crime involving moral turpitude. I would advise you first not to leave the country, and second to hire an immigration lawyer.See question
