    Need an urgent help & fair advise.

    I suspiciously charged for shoplifting by TARGET. Police fingerprinted me. I appear for court date and Judge told me no need to plead guilty. I didn’t get a conditional dismissal. I would have but Jersey City court has their own internal first offender program, so we were able to use that instead. Which is why my term was 6 months instead of a year. And which is why you didn’t have to put a factual basis plea on the record. So, the case was straight dismissed. Which is why my attorney can now file for an expungement right away rather than waiting for 6 months (as i would on a conditional dismissal).

    I got disposition from court which says (i.e. PLEA : 9-No Bill -'no bill' : No Evidence)

    I paid a court fee of 75$.

    ALSO, MY ATTORNEY IS SAYING THERE IS NO CONVICTION FOR IMMIGRATION PURPOSE.

    Does above statement is CORRECT?

    I have certain queries as follows:

    Immigration:


    0) Does conditional dismissal of CASE is good for H1B Visa Stamping , extension?

    1) Is it a good approach of going for direct dismissal of case if someone is on H1b visa ?

    2) What should I need to tell immigration officer about CASE when I go for stamping ?

    3) What are my chances of obtaining green card after this case result ?

    4) What documents I need to obtained from court &/or immigration attorney for visa extension, visa stamping & green card?

    5) Expungement: Is there any issue if I expunge the fingerprint record?


    6) does no plea mean “guilty plea” &/or conviction for immigration?

    Please advise.

    These are questions for your Attorney not a random forum manned by persons who may or may not have law degrees or practice law in your area or that area of law.
