Default Arrest record and citizenship


I am a green card holder. About five years ago I was arrested for one night due to a domestic disturbance. I had hit my spouse - just once - during an argument that went out of control. Spouse called 911 and had me arrested. Police record listed the reason for arrest as "Simple Assault".

I was never formally charged or indicted. Thankfully, better sense prevailed and wife did not pursue the case. I was still ordered by the judge to complete a case on anger management that I finished. Afterwards the case got over.

I am still living with my wife and a child. Now, both myself and my wife are eligible to apply for citizenship. My wife promises to be cooperative during my citizenship application process.

The important point in this case is that I never pleaded guilty or non-guilty, as I was not even charged.

My questions are as follows.

1. Is there even a point in pursuing citizenship, or do I stand no chance at all.
2. Does any one know of any case where someone got citizenship, even after an arrest record.

Lastly, no moral sermonizing please. I know what I have gone thru in this marriage, and it is my, and my alone, cross to bear for the rest of my life. If I am still living with my wife, it is for the sake of my beautiful daughter, and not for any material rewards like citizenship.
