Default Arrested and charged for a criminal offence 20 years ago in Jamaica.

Country: Jamaica


I was arrested and charged for a criminal offence 20 years ago in Jamaica.
My fiance is a US Citizen and we would like to get married.
How does the US Law treat this?
Thank you.
Regards.

I wish to inform you that charges against your fiance may determine his eligibility. If he was charged for murder or other serious crimes then he may not have US citizenship. As 5 years have passed thus in other cases past criminal act may not restrict him from coming to US.

Thanks.
It is me that was charged.
But I assume the same applies correct?

Does a small theft conviction 20 years ago have any relevance when I apply for a US visa to visit on a business trip?
