K1 visa interview , travelled to USA in 2003 answering no to cimts having juvenile conviction and DUI conviction as adult
Hello , I'm few months away from k1 visa interview in London , I'm extremely worried because I travelled to Florida in 2003 and answered no to landing card question regarding arrests involving CIMTS, I assumed this was asking about serious crimes , however I have one arrest for DUI In 2002 and one arrest as 15 yr old in 95' for burglary . Could anyone please let me know wether this will be an issue in my interview .? I feel I answered the landing card In 2003 truthfully but since learnt that I should've answered yes . Is this a common situation and will I be refused k1 visa thank you .
Arrests are always an issue and must be acknowledged. Please consult with an immigration attorney for further advice.
Why wasn't I offered diversion?
I went to court today represented by Cooper Law. On top of my attorney being late for court, all she did was schedule another pretrial and when I brought up getting a diversion, (I think that's the correct term) she said that it wasn't offered and wouldn't be an option. She was in the room with the prosecuting attorney for all of about 30 seconds before she came back out. Are there any other options for me to bring up? It's my first "DUI" and I'm not sure I'm being represented fairly and I'd like to see if there is anything that I would be able to do as far as damage control goes.
Most states do not offer diversion for DUI offenses. Your lawyer probably has the answers to your questions. You should...
Interlock device failed what happens with DMV?
My dui probation ended in May of 2010. I have an interlock device on my car with a zero tolerance sin nov 09. I have never failed a test until Sun 27th 2011. At 6.00 pm I blew a 0.067 and failed so I shut my car off and did not repeat the test. No horn blowing no lights flashing because it was a low reading I was not obligated to retest in the standard 15 minutes. I then tried and blew three hours later it failed again 0.026 and so I shut my car off. No mandatory retest so i turned my car off. I did not attempt to drive. Failures are reported to the courts but at such a low reading, never having any prior failures. I've been told by DMV they wont take my license because I am off probation with the courts. additional opinion is welcomed.
As a general rule, if you are off probation AND you are over the age of 21, then you should be allowed to drink....
First time offense, DUI options to approach the situation.
A couple days ago on my way home after hanging out with a friend I was charged with a DUI. I had just missed the curb as I was distracted, which caused me to swerve away from it. I pulled over to check my car, as I came back to the car, a police officer stopped to check on me. When I explained why I swerved and said I had just drank one beer and offered to take the sobriety test he told me I was okay to go as far as I had someone come to pick me up. When another officer arrived at the scene less than 1 minute from that, he came back and asked if I could take the test. He then proceeded to tell me I was intoxicated and that I needed to go back to the station, after seating in a room for 15-30 minutes while he filled up the information he ran the breathalyzer which ran at .09. During the time I waited he kept his back to me and did not check my mouth before proceeding. I found this shocking with having only having drank one beer. Should I be disputing this or trying to get this to lower charge it all feels strange and poorly done ??
Your mistake was talking to the cop and offering to help yourself get arrested, and possibly convicted. You should have...
Can you use religion as a reason to deny a blood draw in a dui ?
I was pulled over for speeding in Utah and when asked to give a blood draw for DUI I told them that under the 1st amendment I have the right to refuse a blood draw because of my religion being a Jehovah's witness.
This is an argument that you might take to an appellate court. But it is not an argument that will help you with the...
Can an officer make me do a field sobriety test based on my criminal history?
I was pulled over by a motorcycle cop for a cracked windshield. I had all my documents necessary and I gave them to him. Another cop pulls up in a truck. They chit chat for a minute, then the truck cop comes to my door & asks me to step out so he can explain the ticket to me. I get out & we walk to the back of the car. The motorcycle cop tells me hes just giving me a fix it ticket & has me sign it. I was shaking a lil because every time I get pulled over by cottonwood heights cops it never turns out good. So then the motorcycle cop says hes seen that I have a criminal past with drugs and/or something recently with them. I say thats correct. Then he asks me if there's anything illegal in the car, I say no. Then he asks me if he can search the car, I say no, he asks why, I tell him I was on my way to pick my brother up & now im late. Then the truck cop starts saying something about my eyes and then asks me if im on drugs, I tell him no. Then he asks me if ill do a field sobriety test, I repeat everything I said before. Then the motorcycle cop snickers and says thats just his nice way of telling you you're going to do a field sobriety test based on your background. Is that legal?
No, a police officer is not supposed to make you do a field sobriety test. Those are, in theory, voluntary. My question...
I blew 0.024 and was given a DUI citation he called it. do I need to hire an atty to have the charges dropped?
On Cinco de Mayo, I was invited to company party. I arrived at 4:30 PM and left around 6:00 PM. When I first got there, I had one Margarita. Before leaving I drank some water and did not feel buzzy so I decided I could drive. I drove around for the next couple of hours looking for an open salon to get a haircut. I'm new to the area. About 8:00 PM, I pulled into Tangles just off of Fort Union and 2000 East. A girl came to the front desk and told me she was just finishing up and I would have to come back before 5:00 PM to make an appointment. So I left and went back to my car in their parking lot. I noticed there were 3 other cars there and didn't think anything of it. I sat in the driver's seat with the keys in the ignition, engine was not started, and checked email and returned Voice Mail. Twenty minutes later, 2 police cars came driving up and asked me what I was doing and If I had been drinking. I said yes and consequently did not want to blow into their device that could have been tampered with. So I took the 3 street tests. I was arrested, car was impounded, DL was taken and I was taken back to the police station. He finished filling out his report and told me...
Yes, you better hire competent legal counsel on this one..
