I was charged with Domestic Violence last week (Assault & Battery - Domestic). Trial date is set on October and I've a lawyer. Even if my wife wanted to dismiss the case, the state wont and the District Attornys office made it clear that they will find a way to prosecute me. My green card expires on 10/15/2012. If court find me guilty, will it affect my citizenship? Will I be deported? Can I renew my green card? When can I apply for citizenship? If they find me not guilty, how does it affect my citizenship? Please respond, we are having sleeples nights.
