currently in removal proceedings since april 2010 because i was in jail on petty theft charges when ICE officials detained me. I hadn't changed my status or filed yet and only have the I-130 approved but the I-485 wasn't approved by the uscis.Immigration judge gave me a bond of $1500 and i bonded out i am married with a 2yr old daughter and worried if deported i won't be able to provide for my family.
You absolutely need to consult with an attorney. Analyzing immigration consequences of criminal convictions is nearly impossible without seeing the record of conviction. The DUIs should not be a bar to adjustment (but it depends on state law). It can definitely be a bar to good moral character, however. Also, the manner of entry will be critical to your case. If you are ineligible to get your green card in the United States you can try consular processing, but you may require waivers. The battery can also be a problem, depending on the language of a the criminal statute. You really need a lawyer to help you navigate these issues. Seems like you have possibilities (I am assuming your daughter and maybe your wife are United States citizens) but you need some good legal advice. Good luck!
