I am on F-1 visa and will be graduating this Summer. I already have a good job offer and want to apply for OPT. My problem is that I have been arrested in La in 2007, the charge was RS 14:35.3. The case has been dismissed by DA as there was no evidence. I did not do any plea bargain or anger management or anything at all. I did not even hire a lawyer. The expungement has been granted and completed. It is now 2.5 years since the accident. Nothing else on my record before or after.
My questions are:
- Will I have a problem with OPT application? Can it be rejected? Delayed?
- What if I will want to switch to H-1b?
- Will it be a problem for my future visa applications? I understand that I need to answer truthfully on DS-156. Will I have a problem at POE?
- Do I need to get a copy of police report? I am afraid it may difficult now when the case is expunged.
