Hello, I am applying for a h1b and opt extension I got questions about arrest. I am arrested and given with a ACD. The ACD time was 6 months and it got finished. Please suggest me to answer questions with yes or no.
You were arrested.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 19 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
Yes, since you were arrested. Just be honest about the situation. Write an explanation describing what happened and how it will not happen again. Immigration is a privilege and not a right, be mindful that criminal activity could mean an end to your OPT status.
