If I’ve been arrested for visiting a prostitute, will I be denied U.S. citizenship?
Arrest for soliciting a prostitute is not an automatic bar, but a factor in proving good moral character.
I did a dumb thing a few years ago, soon after I got my green card. I had a “date” with a woman who charged me money. I got caught by the police, and now “soliciting a prostitute” is on my criminal record. I would like to apply for U.S. citizenship as soon as I am able, and I haven’t had any other arrests, but I see that one of the questions asks whether I have “procured anyone for prostitution.” What exactly does that mean? And if I check yes to that, will I automatically be denied U.S. citizenship?
