Hi,

I am desperately seeking for any advise.

I broke a law over 10 years ago, was fined and no recorded conviction.

The cout lawyer at that time advised me that I could legally claim I do not have criminal conviction, as I do not have a criminal record.

But I have recently learnt that no criminal conviction is different from not convicted. I have been ticking "No' on the criminal question on the RRV for the past years, without realising it was wrong.

Does anyone have similar experience and be able to advise if my Permanent residency will be revoked because of this mistake? I am petrified.

I only found out after I did research on aplpying to be an Australian citizen. And if that is the case, does that mean I am unable to apply for my Australian citizenship?
