  • green card + shoplifting in canada

    Dear all,
    I am a scientific researcher at Canada. I am eligible to get I-140. But after getting that, as I am outside of U.S. I should apply for an immigrant visa in order to come to the united states and be admitted as a permanent resident instead of I-485.
    Because of a shoplifting under 5000 $ (334(b)) last year, I attended in the court. The charge was withdrawn, because it was a summary one and my first time. So, I just attended in Direct Accountability Program which was a three-hours session. As a result, I was not convicted or sentenced to any punishment, and my lawyer said that no conviction will be recorded on my criminal record. However, I know there will be some record on CPIC. And I know that charge withdrawal in Canada is not acceptable in U.S.
    I wondering to ask that if it can cause denial of my immigrant visa to “go to the United States and be admitted as a permanent resident”? it would be appreciated if you can help me about this issue.
    Look forward hearing back from you.
    Yours sincerely,
    Daniel Stan
