I am working in US with a valid H1B visa. I have never got any tickets in US not even parking ticket but recently in Texas I had an argument with my girlfriend and I pushed her away in anger. She chose not to prosecute me but I still received a citation for assault from the police. The citation states "Physical Contact simple assault class C". I am asked to contact the court in a few days. I am okay to pay the fine.
I am planning to change my job in few months from now. I want to know how will this ticket affect H1B transfer. I am also planning to apply for UK visa, will this ticket affect my UK Visa. Will this appear in all my background checks? Is there any way I can get rid of this by doing some community service etc.?Thanks a lot for the answer. Can some Immigration lawyer put some light on this case please? Will this "Citation for assault - Class C (simple)" affect H1B transfer or chances to re-enter US after few years?
