Any flirtations you have with the criminal justice system may affect your relevant petition, and your immigration status for that matter. Additionally, arrests can hurt your chances of getting a discretionary immigration benefit. This is true even if your conviction was only a misdemeanor, you were sentenced to only probation or court supervision, the conviction is very old, you have lived and worked in the United States for many years, or your entire family lives in the United States.
Accordingly, as a result of your record, you may have your application for citizenship or lawful permanent residence denied, be placed in “removal” (deportation) proceedings, be put in detention while your removal case is going on, be deported, be barred from returning to the United States for a period of years, or, in some cases, be permanently barred from returning.
