Thread: Another DUI and Naturalization Question

  1. #1
    Hi,

    Here is my case:

    I arrived in California at age 20 in August of 1990 with a I-551 (permanent resident - green card).

    I registered for Selective Services.

    I finished a B.S.

    I had my first DUI with a .13 (legal .08) in March 1992
    DMV probation was 5 years
    Courts probation was 7 years

    Then unfortunately I got another DUI with a .30 in March 2001
    Pleaded not guilty but was the jury convicted me. It was seen as a first conviction DUI on June 2002.
    DMV probation was 3 years (expired on June 2005)
    Courts probation was 5 years (still in probation until June 2007)

    I am not an alcoholic.

    My Green Card was renewed recently (after this DUI) until 2015.

    I have now been in Calfornia with no absence of more than 6 months to another country for over 15 years.

    I speak and write English perfectly.

    If I apply for my citizenship what are my chances to get denied due to my DUI charges?

    Thanks,

    yamamazed

    Ooops made a mistake here is the correction:

    Then unfortunately I got another DUI with a .30 in <b>March 2002</b>
    Pleaded not guilty but was the jury convicted me. It was seen as a first conviction DUI on June 2002.
    DMV probation was 3 years (expired on June 2005)
    Courts probation was 5 years (still in probation until June 2007)



    Adding:
    Both DUIs were 3 months revocation of driver license in addition to a fine and atteding a 3 months class to learn about alcohol.

    For someone who's not an alcoholic, you seem to have awfully bad luck with drinking and driving. Maybe you should take a warning from that, and not mix the two? Before your luck (and someone else's) runs out?
