Customer Question

I am a US citizen. I arrived in the UK 200 and have indefinite leave to stay (marriage)
Last December I was sentenced in UK court and am serving our a 12 month suspended sentence on probation.
My probation officer said I could go back to the states to live (divorce) but the only thing keeping me here is she wants to KNOW that the US will let me enter the country.

Ok, then as a US Citizen yes the USA will let you enter the country.

There is no information sharing on convictions between the UK and USA. So if you do not declare it, there is no way they will know.

So yes, you can enter the US. But even as a USA citizen then they can not refuse entry.

Its your country!
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
