    Hi,
    I would like to know if I am able to apply for citizenship after my case was dismissed. I was arrested on 2014 for domestic violence charges. However, my case was dismissed in court and my arrest charges still in record since I am in NY. I would like to know if I can apply now for my citizenship or would I have to wait for 5 years before I can apply. Thanks!

    Apply. But make sure to list the arrest and any other run ins with the law you might have had and get the disposition for your case they will need a certified copy from the court or the original. And you shouldn't have any trouble at all
