I have an arrest about 5+ years ago which was dismissed due to lack of evidence to prove the charge against me, no plea, no diversion involved. But the dismissal date was one year later, which means the dismissal happened less than 5 years from now. I am not sure if it is OK for me to apply for naturalization at this time. Am I satisfied the 5-year GMC statutory period? Some lawyers told me i will be fine, while some lawyers told me I have to wait for a bit longer so that the dismissal falls outside the statutory period. i am a bit confused.
