arrested as pc243(e)(1) in 2013 can this prevent me getting a green card through marriage?

    i am f-1 student and recently got married with a citizen

    i went to see a lawyer to discuss about green card application

    lawyer said that, due to my domestic violence record, i can be detained and get deported at the visa interview

    i was charged with pc243(e)(1), 1 month sentence and $800 fine, no restraining order

    i expunged my case in 2017, although i heard it doesn't affect anything in terms of green card application.

    my current wife was the victim

    there is really no way at all for me to apply green card?

    Expungement doesn't matter in immigration cases, only thing that does is make it impossible to get original disposition
    Which you would have had to send in with expungement application to get the expungement

    So hopefully you had more than 1 certified court copy of that or you're going to need the final order of expungement to apply

    Fact that your current wife is the victim and will be petitioning for you is a good thing

    sounds like the lawyer is giving you the "the very worst case scenario " of what can happeN
