Do I Really Need To Divulge All Details About My Criminal History, Even If A Charge Has Been Expunged? What Are The Consequences If I Do Not?

Yes. You need to always be honest on all of your immigration applications regarding all:

  • Arrests (including those by police, Immigration Officers, and other Federal Agents);
  • Convictions (even if they have been expunged); and
  • Crimes you have committed for which you were not arrested or convicted.

Even if you have committed a minor crime, Immigration may deny your application if  you do not tell the Immigration officer about the incident. It is extremely important that  you tell Immigration about any arrest even if someone else has advised you that you are  not required to do so.
