  • B1 Visa with Sealed arrest record???

    Hi All,
    My employer wants me to initiate a B1 Visa for myself.
    I had an arrest with DV misdemeanor with my ex-husband , the DA never filed any charges.

    Am I obligated to answer "yes" to the question in DS-160 to the question "
    have you ever been arrested Speed Test essay writer or convicted for any offense or crime?"

    Am I obligated to answer " yes" if I get my arrest records sealed?

    I am ok in explaining the situation by answering "yes", but want to avoid it coz my employer scrutinizes every application and I dont want my ugly past haunt me forever, which I have put behind me.

        Since you have duplicated the question, I will do the same from an "answer" perspective

        A "sealed" record does not matter for immigration purposes.
        Your answer should be YES, with an explanation that the charges were dismissed.
        Include copies of the court records / dismissal as evidence.

        A letter from your employer for the purpose of the visit, dates of travel, etc. will go a long way in getting the visa.
