Customer Question


I qualify for an ancestry visa in the UK. I plan on applying for it soon. I am married to an American who would be joining me as well. He has a criminal record though and I was wondering if you could give us advice on if this would affect his application? He has never been convicted, served jail time or been on probation. He has either had the charges dropped, plead not guilty or no contest and the adjudication has been withheld. All of these arrests happened more then 10 years ago but there are about 13 in total from 1997 - 2003. He is almost 35 at this point and has turned his life around and is now a well educated contributing member of the community. What is his likelihood of being approved or rejected base on the good character requirements?

He should be approved as he has not been convicted and and does not have any pending court cases against him.

All the best
