My husband is a permanent resident and his ex had him arrested on false charges. They now want him to take misdemeanor probation for 2 years. We are to the point of taking it and going on but we are not sure if he can be deported for it
You did not state what the charges are which makes it very difficult to properly advise you. As to pleading guilty to the misdemeanor, if the crime is one of “moral turpitude”, even if it is a misdemeanor, you could be deported. See an immigration lawyer who also handles criminal matters - see a few if necessary, many offer free or low cost initial consultations.
