Can DUI charges stop me from immigrating to the U.S.?

If you are thinking about immigrating to the United States, many questions may be on your mind, whether they are related to the application process or daily life in a new country. It is important to try and find answers to these questions before applying for citizenship or attempting to obtain a green card in Miami-Dade, Florida, or another part of the nation. Moreover, there are all sorts of hurdles that may arise during the application process. For example, if you have been charged with drunk driving, you may be deemed inadmissible.

When it comes to admissibility, alcohol-related problems are considered physical or mental disorders, according to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. If you have been charged with driving under the influence, these charges could stop you from immigrating to the U.S. However, it will depend on the details. If you have a lengthy track record of drunk driving charges, you could face a much more difficult time than someone who has only been charged with DUI once.

If you are uncertain about how drunk driving accusations could impact your immigration application, it is important to carefully assess your personal circumstances and figure out the right path forward. Also, if you plan on applying for a green card or working towards U.S. citizenship, it is essential to remember that DUI charges can be especially damaging.
