Hi, I thought to post my question here as I am also in similar situation. I am in Washington state. I am charged with domestic violence degree 4 charges I already had couple of court dates The case is still undergoing motion hearing with readiness hearing set for the December. At this moment, Prosecutor has offered the SOC(stipulated order of continuance) with the condition to do DV classes for 1 year. I think the SOC will state that if I fulfill the terms for the year, they will dismiss the charges which means the police report won't be admissible.I am still negotiating the SOC terms from 1 year to 6 months and haven't signed anything.I am on H1B VISA and my VISA stamp is expired on passport. I have I-797 valid till July 2018. I am planning to go to India in the month of January, I want to know 1) Can I do VISA stamping in India ? Can the consulate officer deny my VISA or put me on AP ? 2) Can I return back to USA ? Appreciate any reply who have faced similar situation, I know its very much stressful.
