  • domestic violence battery charge on citizenship

    Should I accept penal 242 battery charge for an incidence with my spouse? Is 242 going to lead to deportation?

    Re: domestic violence battery charge on citizenship

    can someone out there confirm this code 242 is not a base for rejecting citizenship?

    1) An alien's conviction for domestic battery in violation of sections 242 and 243(e)(1) of the California Penal Code does not qualify categorically as a conviction for a "crime involving moral turpitude" within the meaning of section 237(a)(2)(A)(ii) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C.

      It can be a reason to deny but is not automatically

        Re: assult with a deadly weapon

        My husband was convicted and plead to assult with a deadly weapon. He was sentenced to one year in county jail in California. Is his charge considered "aggrivated assult" ? If not, is his charge deportable? Thanks for your help.

          My family had a very similar situation and he was deported. Call the DA to ask how it was charged and if it requires deportation.

            If someone was arrested on a Battery charge but the case was dismissed and the record was expunged, would this be a cause for denial of citizenship (be it for moral character or anything). Also with no other criminal record.

              My husband was deported on assault a battery charges in 1998. The immigration said he was an aggrivated felon. I was wondering on how I can bring him back to the US legally. I am american citizen and I have 5 children that are also american citizens. and if anyone knows how long he was banned from the US because the immigration judge never told us anything.

                  Battery and domestic violence are two different things.
