I and my wife have travel plans to India this October and i'm on H1b visa employed full-time by my employer. My wife is on H4-EAD working contract IT job. Since my visa is expired, I'm required to attend visa interview at US consulate to get my new H1b visa to re-enter into united states and i believe my wife has to attend the visa interview too.
Back in October 2017 i had an intense argument with my wife and she had to call cops and then i got arrested. But then she stood by my side, bailed me out of arrest, and we fought the case together. She also submitted a notarized letter at time to judge, saying it all happened by accident and she never intended for me to get arrested. But due to strict California laws I got arrested in October 2017 and I plead guilty for 'Misdemeanor PC 415(1)' in March 2019. I also attended anger management counselling as the judge has order.
Now, will I face any problems during my visa Interview for H1b at US consulate or, by Immigration during re-entry to US at port of entry given my arrest and guilty charges? Is it even safe to plan for travel out of country? Please let me know.
