Question
I was once arrested with 3 charges Assault 3rd, Risk of injuray at child, Disorderly conduct, I was ordered to take 10 sessions of anger management classes, which I took right away. and the dispositions of all three were nolle, now I need to apply US green card, and I expect to be called for an interview after filing I-485, am I going to be denied because of this arrest record? Thanks in advance


Answer
The disorderly conduct is not going to be a problem. However, there is a good chance that the assualt conviction could prevent you from getting your green card. The 3rd conviction for risk of injusry to a child I would have to research to see if it would be a problem.
