Will a petitioners criminal record affect my change in immigration status? 1 Answers as of May 24, 2011
I came with a B1 visa and my boyfriend surprised me with an engagement ring. We got married last month and we are considering doing the change of status. He is an American citizen, but has a record from two years ago, (domestic violence). It was a misunderstanding but it is still in the files. Will this affect my change of status in any way? If so what can I do?

Under these circumstances, the petitioner's criminal record will not be relevant. The adjudicating officer will only want to ensure that the crime is disclosed to you. This is a great case. Best of luck.
