Subject: How does rehabilitation work?
  I am in the US. On May of 2006 I was sentenced four years deferred adjudication/supervised probation for aggravated felony charge. I sent rehabilitation form to buffalo office as "Information Only" and they replied that I will not be able to apply until May of 2011. Does that mean my five years count from the day of sentencing instead of completion of sentence? Also, does that mean my conviction won´t count against me if I apply for rehabilitation and permanent residency once my five years waiting period expires? If not, what can I do to better my chances? Is there any straight forward law regarding rehabilitation or it´s up to the immigration officer?

By the way, you guys are being awsome helping other with their concerns.
