Thread: I-485 Part 3 Crime/Arrest

  1. #1
    Hello, on I-485 Part 3 section 1. question "a" starts with "knowingly committing a crime of moral turpitude but not been arrested..." and questions "b" is if you actually been arrested/charged etc. Am I correct to say that question "a" is your confession of a crime (but never got caught) vs. question "b" where you were actually processed/charged? My spouse falls under the "petty crime" exception for a CMT, so we should mark question "b" only, although question "a" refers to CMT, but marking both questions might give the impression that there is more than one crime committed (the actual and any other not been arrested for) and that's not of course our case. "Petty crime" exception is not available for more than one CMT. Besides this one CMT there are no other drugs or crimes committed, knowingly or otherwise. Anybody disagrees? Thank you!

    Be sure to check that box, and let us all know what happens.

    You have to mark a, as it is USCIS who makes the exemption, not you. You cannot judge the crime, USCIS makes that call. Failure to mark a will result in a denial.
