Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. For now please let me know what was the conviction for and what did you get? Is it your only conviction?
It will appear on a record yes. This is because it is a criminal conviction. You can declare this if you wish but as the law does not permit a full and frank disclosure of criminal convictions between the UK and Antigua, there are no such treaties in place for information sharing. Generally only the most serious convictions are disclosed, which are violent and sexual offences. Therefore it is a matter for you whether you disclose it. Clearly I can not tell you to lie, but you have to ask if you do not disclose and it is spent, will anyone actually find out?
I trust that this resolves your question, if so I would be grateful if you could take a moment and rate the service I have given you, as it is an important part of the process. If you need more help or information then please click reply. Alex
