You have a second problem, depending on the felon y charges and the country you wish to visit, that country might not issue you a visa. You should check with their consulate.
My name is Stephen R. Cohen and I have practiced over 38 years and can be reached at 213-819-1171. I practiced mainly in Los Angeles and Orange County, California. I am not seeking clients from existing relationships with other attorneys, and give only limited advise over the phone (the phone is primarily used to set appointments), these services do not create an attorney client relationship. I apologize for mispelling< as I am a lousy typist, My answers may offend as I do not believe in pulling punches or sugar coating the truth. Further regarding courts in other states my opinions are largely based on logic and what I think is the modern trend which is to consider the needs of the child.
I am going to tell you that it does depend on the felony.. If it was a drug offense that used international borders, if the courts ordered you to not leave the country.. There are some compulsory and discretionary reasons for denial. Only the State Department makes the final decision and you wont know unless you apply.... Other countries are a different story and you will need to check where yuare going
Depends on the 2005 felony. Some countries will not allow admission and the US could deny the application. Nothing to lose by trying. The State Department will notify you.
