We got a question from Leo today.
This is what Leo had to say:
My wife is a Philippine Citizen, we both live in the US, we are planning to move in the Philippines for the future.
I have been arrested twice in the past, in 1994 and in 2001, in both cases for domestic battery, both cases have been dismissed by the Court. I don’t have conviction of any kind.
Since a police report is requested to obtain a resident visa in Philippines, do you think I may have problem for my past arrest?
Thank you for your answer.
And this is Bob’s answer to Leo’s question,
Hi Leo – That is a tough one to answer, and I am not really sure. I would think that if you were not convicted there should be no problem.
BTW, you only have to submit police reports from the places you have lived from the past 5 years. Is it possible that you are no longer living in the places where you were arrested? If so, that would wipe your record clean.
