Got DWI and sentenced for 3 years probation on aug 2011.My H1 visa is expiring on sept 2012.My employer does not know about this.My question is
1)Can I apply for renwal?
2)If i want to apply for renewal, should I hire my own attorney?
You can apply for a renewal of your H1 visa. An attorney will have to look at the elements of the charge under the laws of that state. Immigration law have a moral component that is applied in each case. Retain an attorney to represent you.
