Unfortunately one of my very close friend got charged with Solicitation of prostitution . He was caught in a police sting operation. He doesn't have any prior history of criminal charges or convictions. He is fighting his case , but if he is convicted then 1) Can he file for citizenship in 1- 2 yrs time frame ? He is in 6th year of his GC 2) Can he extends his GC instead of applying for citizenship ? are there chances of extension getting denied ? 3) Can he travel outside of U.S before filing for G.C ? What document/precaution should he take before travelling ? Is he inadmissible ? 4) Has anyone one traveled outside of U.S with conviction and a GC ? please share your experience at the time of immigration Thank you all for your attention , help and response. I have searched the forum and got some answers , but they seem to be little dated - atleast 4-5 years ago , so posting it again to get response/help from some more recent cases like my friend.
