I am soon to marry my fiance, whom I have been in a long distance relationship with for 3 years. This means I am about to undergo the process of applying for the Fiance K1 Visa to the USA.
The downside to this is that 11 years ago (when I was 16), I was arrested and charged with GBH with intent. As I understand it, due to me being under 18, this does not fall under a crime of moral turpitude. Also, without going into the details of the crime, it was self defence which went overboard as agreed by both parties in court. I got fined and probation as a result of this yet did not get any form of jail time in a young offenders institute.
I know this conviction will show on my criminal record but since I was so young and it was also 11 years ago, how much does this hinder my chances of gaining my K1 visa? I am incredibly nervous about starting the whole process now.
