Could a shoplifting charge can cause a denial of EAD ( work permit ) ?
Cumming, GA |
My wife caught shoplifting ( first offense ) in September last year , She did not plead guilty but instead opt for pre trial diversion program which is starting next week . Meanwhile we filed renewal application for our EAD cards in January , I got mine approved but her EAD status is still showing as " initial review " means background check . I am worried if USCIS could denied her EAD ?
I agree with Mr. Rice. Although entry into the pre-trial diversion program is NOT a conviction, the red flag is up because of the arrest. You need to speak with an immigration attorney as your wife may be at risk.
