I'm a greencard holder married to a US citizen, was planning to apply for citizenship this year, and just got a DUI. My breathalyzer test was .20. I understand that applying for citizenship is currently out of the question. My question is, what should my goal be during this process if I am ever to have hope of applying for citizenship? I can handle losing my license, classes, community service, jail time. But what do I need to avoid for immigration purposes? Perhaps the question is, what will give me the possibility of one day having this charge "expunged"?
