I have been given a ticket on charges of prostitution?will this go on my record or hurt my chances of gaining permanent resisence in california?
You haven't stayed what your status in in the USA? In general prostitution can be a deportable offense and a waiver is required to return. if you are not an LPR I assume you have a visa or you have not status or DACA. If any of these is your status the status can be revoked and you may be deported. I suggest you retain an experienced immigration attorney who is experienced in defense against remove as a result of criminal activity.

What is your current status?
It is advisable to contact an immigration lawyer for a consultation to discuss your case.
More information is needed such as your current status in the US. It is best to consult with an attorney for a full review of the criminal issue.
Yes, the charge of prostitution, if it results in conviction, is grounds for deportation and revocation of your present legal status. However, this is a “ticket” or citation. I would look to an attorney to work with you on dealing with the prostitution charge to avoid removal from the USA.
