    Default H1B Visa Holder Seeking Permanent Residency, Convicted of Disorderly Conduct

    How much will a disorderly conduct conviction, plea bargained from a theft of services charge, affect a H1B visa holder's ability to reenter the U.S. after international travel, or their pending petition for a Green Card?

    It would probably fall under the petty offense exception for purposes of reentry, but as the underlying charge is a theft charge it reflects poorly on your moral character for the Green Card application. It would be wise to consult an immigration lawyer with the details.
