I am a green card holder (since 2001) and was recently arrested for criminal possession of marihuana- 5th: in a public place. Additionally, I was just getting ready to send out my application for citizenship. At my first hearing, I was offered an ACD but declined because I heard that even after its sealed, it would still threaten my citizenship application. Was this correct?
1. How will this effect my application? / Should I not send it out until this is all over?
2. If I should send it, do I make any amendments to it?
3. Accept ACD? Can I ask for a dismissal on grounds that it will effect my immigration status?
Please help. I don't have a clue as to what's going on!
Thank you in advance.
