CIMT- Means Crimes Involving Moral Turpitud.
All citizenship applicants must know that if you are not considered a person of "Good Moral Character", you will be denied for citizenship.
Of course some crimes are in this list.
But you have to be very careful- even some very demure crimes or violations can be in this list.
That's why I implore all citizenship applicants to use an experienced immigration attorney when filing for citizenship.
It also includes things like not filing taxes for even just one year.
It includes missing some months of child support and many other things you never even thought would be looked at or relevant.
So note to self- use an immigration attorney in your USCIS applications.
I can't write down every defense I might have to use in your case because i would have to make you a lawyer to do that. But trust me on this one. Money well spent.
