Is it any crime, any time?Or
nbsp;gt;are minor offenses permissible?Is there some sort of statute of
nbsp;gt;limitations?
nbsp;gt;The friend's family has asked us for advice; we told them we'd try to
nbsp;gt;have an answer by early next week.It's possible that since this was
under esssentially a terrorists regime, the offenses may be forgiven,
but who knows?

Originally posted by Aftonokla Not only CAN he be kept out most likely he will be kept out if those crimes are felony equals in the USA (that is a year or more in jail possible).The new husband hasn't had any problems with the
law in the last eight years.

Thanks very much in advance,Douglas Muir

However, the sister's new husband has a minor criminal record. He should inquire about getting a pardon in Serbia.It's American standards that matter.The sister, and her new husband, are making plans to move to
nbsp;gt;the US later this year.

nbsp;Nevertheless, the question remains -- can he be kept out?How is the

nbsp;a criminal record could be cause for rejection -- but we can't find a
nbsp;clear definition of criminal record.

The best thing to do is to contact a US immigration attorney who is well
versed in criminal inadmissibility.

By Serbian standards, it's pretty minor.

Yes, the last thing that Uncle Sam needs is somebody who has a history of settling disputes with his fists!
