    I filed for divorce from my wife, whom I married through a fiance visa 10 years ago and have a child with.
    A year later I was accused of domestic violence by her (simple assault) and have a trial pending. My lawyer said that even though I'm not guilty, my chances are about 50-50, and the best thing to do is to plead guilty to lesser offences (2 harassment and 2 disorderly conduct) to avoid a misdemeanor record and potential jail time.
    After I filed for divorce I met someone in another country and want to file a fiance visa for her once my divorce is finalized. I want to know if having harassment and disorderly conduct convictions will prevent me from getting the fiance visa approved.
    Thank you,

    Yeah, this may affect! What your lawyer said about this? The same situation happened with my brother and he hired a lawyer by researching some useful sites to hire a successful one. He also said that his chances of getting a finance visa is 50-50 but at last he got it!
