Imagine that you order an Uber to transport you to an event in downtown Atlanta. You open the app. You pay for the service. The Uber arrives. You are now a passenger in the Uber headed towards your destination. Your Uber driver approaches a red light at an intersection near your neighborhood. Your Uber driver stops his vehicle in response to the red light. A distracted driver driving behind you does not see the red light. He does not stop his vehicle. The distracted driver smashes his vehicle into the rear of the Uber vehicle.
Never underestimate the value of good moral character. Good moral character, to at least some degree, is a requirement for almost all types of immigration benefits. In addition, the better character you have, and the more positive equities you have established, the more likely the government will be to exercise discretion in your favor. Nevertheless, many immigrants have limited views of what good moral character encompasses, and thus, they fail to meet the standards of character that the U.S. government is looking for.
