Question: How will a DUI affect my green card?

Answer: FIrst of all, your DUI may be worth fighting, and it may be possible to get your DUI charge dismissed. The potential consequences of a DUI are very serious, even for U.S. citizens not worrying about green card status. You should consult a DUI attorney to speak about your case in more detail. In regards to how it will effect your green card you are waiting for, you should consult with an Immigration attorney who specializes in that area. Personally, I recommend hiring a DUI attorney to handle the case, then that DUI Attorney can speak to an Immigration attorney with you or for you to assess the potential immigration consequences.
