What happens if a green card holder pleads guilty to a misdemeanor?
Need Professional Help? Talk to a Lawyer.
I got arrested recently, and my lawyer thinks he can work out a plea agreement where only a misdemeanor goes on my record and I don’t have to go to jail. I haven’t mentioned to him that I’m here on a green card. II’ve been meaning to apply for citizenship, but haven’t yet gotten around to it.) Is a misdemeanor charge a small enough deal to avoid trouble with my immigration status?
