Default Need serious help

Back in 2001 I flew to the United States under the VWP (Visa Waiver Program), I was 16 years old back then, entered the US through Ohare Chicago, stayed 2 months in California, flew from California to Canada to do skying and then came back to the US from Vancouver, I overstayed for 19 days, I then flew back home by myself meaning I did not want to overstay.

Back in 2005 my father got pulled over in my home country, I was in the car with him, he had a couple gun rounds in the car globebox cause it was hunting season, no guns, just bullets and the police initially charged him and me for bullets posession, then the charge was dismissed two years after.

I plan on saying "YES" on ds-160 where they ask if you been arrested, I have been arrested and fingerprinted in my home country, and I also plan on saying yes for overstaying.

I work for the government in my home country and earn good money.

What are my chances on getting the visa? What should I do? I want to visit Miami for 5 days.

Hello,

Tough to say ... but if rest of your record is clear, you might get through. However, overstaying is always a big problem (I think it is 10 years ban from reentry if you overstay).

If I was you, I would explain the situation to the visa officer at US consulate and provide documentation to prove that the overstay was more of ignorance than intention. Good luck...
