    Default Filing I-485 (Adjustment of Status) with Retail Fraud, Second Degree Theft

    I came to US on F1 student visa in dec. 2006. My mom applied I-130 in june 2008. Got I-797 approved I-130 petition in june 2009 as an unmarried child (under age 21) of US citizen. I was arrested in Oct. 2008 for Retail fraud theft 2nd degree in Michigan,jailed for 1 day. Appeared in Court on march 2009. Pleed guilty, payed fine, 1 year probation, 3 days community service. Case closed in march 2010. In dec 2011, my mom died of cancer. Now i want to apply for status adjustment. I know my dad (permanent resident) or brother (US citizen) could become my substitute sponsor. But what kind of trouble am I in? What are my chances of getting green card ?
    Thankyou in advance.

    You one misdemeanor theft offense does not disqualify you, but it will bring additional scrutiny and could result in the denial of your application. It would make sense to discuss the details of our case with an immigration lawyer.
