I'm going to America for a family holiday in about 7 months and I might be getting a criminal record for GBH or assault, I'm not sure yet.
I was acting in self defense but I just wanted to know, I'm 15 - I'll be 16 when I hopefully get to go to America- but I was just wondering, would I still be able to get in?
I'm really worried I might not be able to as its a last family holiday and I really want to go.

Try not to judge me about my age and everything.

Thanks,
Lauren

If you type "criminal record" into the Search box at the top right hand side of the page, you will find many threads on the subject.

Lauren, keep your mouth shut and say no to convictions on the esta and you will be fine.....unless you committed a serious offence like armed robbery or murder.

The criminal record thread will explain all.
