Travel Forums North America HELP! Entering USA with a old criminal record

Hi All,

Apologises for starting another thread, but i'm still at a loss after reading up on it for the last fortnight! Help!

Me and my fiancé are planning on doing a flit to Las Vegas to get married in November this year.

He has an assault charge from i'm 15yrs ago when he was a youngster, was charged an got a fine. Where do we stand? Do I need to get in touch with the US embassy and make an appointment?
Obviously, i'm reluctant to not research this before we go.....I cant imagine the nightmare of being turned away on what should be the happiest weekend of our lives.

Advise appreciated Thanks

Your situation has been addressed dozens and dozens and dozens of times in this thread, especially near the end.

Bottom line:

1.) There is never a guarantee, but chances are overwhelmingly in your favour that it's a complete non issue.

2.) If you can't put it out of your head then simply do the paperwork and get officially cleared to visit. End of story.

Anything else is a waste of brain cells.

Good luck and have fun.
