Thread: INS Denial Poor moral character

  1. #1
    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I've been denied due to an arrest that took place when i was 16 it was a burglary charge but it was charged as a misdameanor. It states in the "poor moral character section" it has to be 5 years from the time of incident to the time of application. I am now 21 and the 5 year mark will be the end of this year. What i would like to know is once we pay the additonal 605.00 and get a review hearing will my case be seen as "passed the statutory period" once this year is over?

    Five years is correct. If I were you, I would definitely speak with a reputable attorney before proceeding. Good luck.

    I assumed it was for naturalization, but I could be wrong.

    Seeing "militarybound", figured he already has a status.

    I had the same thought. Maybe he will come back and clarify, but I do think he's already an LPR and trying to become a citizen.

    Sorry for not clarifying, but its for naturalization. Ive been trying to get into Airforce but the job needs Secret Clearence without citizenship i cannot apply for it. I dont have a valid "Green Card" either, it expired in 2007. FYI no it doesnt affect me getting my citizenship.
