    Since it was more than 5 years ago, they should be OK, Mary. Less than 5 years would probably result in a denial.

    Just like Aroha said, if it was only a misdemeanor and five years or longer ago, no biggie. They should be fine.

    Normally the previous 5 year period is what they look at. But they can go back and look forever. There is no statue of limitation in the INA. If they (USCIS) determine the crime to be a CIMT or Aggravated Felony (under INA terms) that can be a problem. It has happened where the USCIS determined old crimes which were misdemeanors under State law were re-classed as CIMTs or AF by the USCIS.

    Did they renew the GC recently?
