  • H1b

    Hi, i'm a masters student on F1 visa.Recently i was caught selling alcohol to a minor by ABC board. The police took my details like name,height, weight,colour,and also took a photo of my face and passport. I plead guilty in the court and paid 815$ fine. I would like to know
    1) Is it gonna effect my h1b visa? If yes, in what way?
    2) Is it gonna give me trouble at airport by Department of Homeland Security?
    3) One of my friends told me that it surely will give me trouble at H1b visa stamping. Is there any way that i could escape from it?

    Thank you.

        Maybe yes, and your friend is correct. You should not have pled guilty without the assistance or advice of an attorney. You need to speak with an immigration attorney ASAP who has experience with criminal matters.

          There is no way to avoid. Trouble in H1B and green card. Not really sure if you would be troubled at port of entry. Respect the laws of the nation you live in. Good luck!

              Time and again ppl fail to realize how is it illegal to work part time jobs on F1 or any non work visas. You must be lucky that the cop didn't ask for your citizenship status or reported to US Imm.
              Your only option is to consult an attorney.

                Misdemeanor offenses should not affect your immigration status unlike a felony! Getting H1 approved should not be affected by that incident. However, you might have some problems at the port of entry when you go for stamping. Either way, you should check this with a lawyer! Good luck.

                  Good thing is your still in this country, Yes there will be a problem at the time of Stamping & Port of Entry,

                  How can you face it ? you have to give convincing answer to the authorities, where ever they ask you about this... you decide what is the convincing answer, which is difficult... Good Luck...

                    There is something called Expungement of records. You can try that but it might not hold good against USCIS. Get a consult from a good immigration lawyer.

                      You will defiantly have a problem in the port of enter. They won't listen to any of your explanation and directly deport you this is the bitter truth.

                              2. Yes(I knew somebody who got deported to India at port of entry). Better don't plan any travels to India at least 2 years.
                              3. I think there is no way to avoid.
