Can a H1B change of status application be rejected for a DWI?
I'm an F1 student currently on OPT STEM extension. My H1B visa application got picked this year. I was arrested in 2015 for DWI and released the next day. I pleaded guilty in May last year after my lawyer's recommendation and was sentenced with level 5 DWI, which is supposedly the lowest sentence there is for DWI in NC. There was one aggravating factor - BAC greater than 0.15 and 1 mitigating factor - clean driving record. As part of the conviction my license was suspended for 1 year but I was allowed a limited driving privilege with an ignition interlock. I have my license back now. I had already done community service and medical examination so I was not ordered to do them again. My lawyer once told that a simple DWI is not a CMT so I shouldn't have any problems with immigration but can someone please let me know if my change of status request from F1 to H1B can be rejected because of the DWI? I have no plans of leaving the US to get the visa stamped. I have a great job and would love continue working here. I had no problems when I applied for STEM extension and my license was suspended back then. Also, if the H1B petition is denied can I continue working with my F1 STEM OPT?
The process of changing from F to H-1B in the US likely will not include your conviction record. However, the US...
North Carolina driving privilege suspended for not submitting Form 508 to the DMV
I was convicted of a DWI in May 2016 and completed 20 hours of substance abuse treatment. My lawyer obtained a limited driving privilege with an ignition interlock. The license suspension was scheduled to be lifted on May 10, 2017 upon which I could have my driving license reinstated. However, today I received a letter from the North Carolina DMV stating that my driving privilege has been suspended as they have not received an approved Form 508 from NC DWI Services. I realize that this might be the fault of the treatment center for not sending the form. I'm not sure how to interpret the letter, i.e, whether my limited driving privilege that is valid until 5/10/2017 has been suspended effective immediately or just that my driving license won't be reinstated on May 10? Excerpt from the letter - "We regret to inform you that your driving privilege is suspended for an alcohol related suspension. In accordance with GS 20-17.6, this suspension is scheduled to be indefinitely extended 12:01 AM 5/10/2017, because the DMV has not received an approved Form 508."
It means no driving -at all-at least until this is resolved. Was the agency which assessed you the sane but becwhere...

Should a DWI conviction be disclosed in an H-1B petition?
I'm an F1 student on STEM OPT working for a tech startup. I was convicted of DWI in May 2016. My license was revoked for a year and I'm just about to get it back. The sentencing was level 5 which is supposedly the lowest in North Carolina. My company filed an H-1B petition for me for fiscal year 2018 and it got picked in the lottery. The immigration attorney, who was hired by the company and filed the petition, never asked me for any criminal convictions. I also went through the petition and it doesn't look like it asks for such events anywhere. Will not disclosing a DWI prevent the petition from being approved? P.S. - I do not plan on leaving the country to get the visa stamped. The petition is for a change of status since I'm already working in the US. Any other information would be greatly appreciated.
H1B visa is a temporary work visa and questions regarding moral character/criminal convictions are not part of the...
Can you get an F1 OPT STEM extension with a DWI in North Carolina?
Hi, I'm an F1 student currently on OPT. I just applied for STEM extension. I was arrested last year for DWI and released the next day. I pleaded guilty in May this year after my lawyer's recommendation and was sentenced with level 5 DWI, which is supposedly the lowest sentence there is for DWI in NC. There was one aggravating factor - BAC greater than 0.15 and 1 mitigating factor - clean driving record. As part of the conviction, my license was suspended for 1 year but I was allowed a limited driving privilege with an ignition interlock. I had already done community service and medical examination so I was not ordered to do them again. I remember my lawyer telling me that a simple DWI is not a CMT so I shouldn't have any problems with immigration but can someone please let me know if my STEM extension application can be rejected because of the DWI? I have a great job and would love continue working here. Thanks!
This question needs to be directed to an immigration attorney - preferably one in NC who you can meet with (sorry, out...

What will be the most likely outcome for me given the charges and scenario?
I currently have two pending dui's. For the first one I had to blow at the station after refusing to blow at the time of arrest (which ended up helping) because I blew a .15 three hours later. For the second I was under the influence of alcohol (two-three drinks) and had a fender bender with another vehicle. An officer witnessed the accident and immediately arrested me. I was never asked to blow into a breathalyzer, no blood or urine tests. On the records of the incident, there is no number given for my BAC. it literally says ****. My lawyer has not been very helpful to me and is impossible to get in touch with. Will the second charge be upheld? What will a DUI with no BAC record result in? Thank you for your time.
Did you have your license back on the second DWI? This is something you really need to talk to your attorney about....
