    Here's a link to a similar case as yours.

    I suggest you talk to a good immigration lawyer to double check. We are lay-lawyers on here. Also the length of time ago this happened can have an impact. If it's within the past 5yrs it might cause problems. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    I read the post, and that guy got his green card even though he was convicted of theft, because he was qualified for petty offense exception.

    No doubt you informed your future H1B boss about the fact you are a thief, right? If not, please post his name and address, so we can request that he not import thieves....

    ...I guess that you should have thought about that BEFORE you abused the hospitality of the American people. You're lucky that you're not back in your country of origin already!

    I've posted something earlier here but I just have another question. I was arrested for petty theft but later the case was reduced to disturbing the peace with the help of a lawyer. I'm currently on a F-1 student visa and will graduate in two years, I wonder what are my chances that I can change my visa status to H1-B(working visa) with the conviction and arrest record?
