am a 19 year old male on my mothers J2 visa right now.this summer she will switch her visa to an H1 and i will
therefore have an H4. Recently i had a brush with the law and i will go to trial for a Minor in possesion and the other
charge (which i am worried more about) - furnishing alcohol to a minor. both are being tried as violations , not as
misdemeanors or anythig like that. my question: i have been told it would be very smart if i could get the furnishing
alcolhol dismissed, becuase it could be considered a crime of moral turpitude, but the MIP supposedly was not really
that bad in the INS's eyes. I am tryint to figure out if these two violations will cause alot of trouble in the future when i
try to get my green card, after the age of 21 and how likely it is that they will cause problems before that, when my
mother attempts to het the H4 for me this summer and other possible visas i will try to get before i obtain a greencard.
is the MIP violation or the furning alcolhol violation worse? if i get rid of the furnishing alcolhol one, is the MIP
violation pretty minor, or likeyl to cause a problems like me not getting my H4 visa after my mother this summer? or is
the real worry reallt only when i do apply for a greencard if i still have the furnishing alcohol to minor on record at
that time. will the mip violation alone on my record cause i big problem when appying ofr another visa or greencard?
thanx alot, i would really apreciate a response. sincerely joe s.
