In 04 I was charged with petite theft but no arrest, just a diversion course. In 05 I was arrested and charged with grand theft credit card fraud $5000, made bail. Adjudication of guilt was withheld, I did no jail time BUT I got 3yrs probation, community service and I had to register as a felon, because I committed a felony.. All took place in Orange county Florida. And it all happen within five years of me being in the US. I arrived in 2000.
Now in a couple months I have to renew my GC and I'm so worried of being sent home. I tried to seal/expunged it and $500 later the lawyer said I cant. I think they knew that before they got paid. I know many may see it best to get an immigration lawyer, but I'm barely able to support myself at this point and I cannot afford one. I haven't worked in over a year. BLAH!
Thanks in advance on your advice.
