    Hello Ron,
    I am in deep tension as my pd for GC is approaching.
    one year back,I was unfortunately booked in a retail theft case ( due to nonbilling of an item by the checkout person ),no arrest & no fingerprinting. I had to attend court , hired a lawyer and the case got DISMISSED without any problem.
    Now my question is , is this going to affect my GC processing as we mention in I 485 ? Please suggest me.

    Thanks in advance.

    If there was no conviction or guilty plea, then the matter is closed and cannot be used against you.

    I saw your post on Ron Gotchers website. I just got petty theft ticket 2 days back and got court date for 3/21/2012. Since the date is not convenient to me as i am pregnant and due in a week, I went to court to postphone and they don't have anything in the system. Should I wait until I get something in the mail?

    How was your case dismissed? which state is it? is the other failed to attend.

    Please kindly reply.

    Thanks
    CG
