    Answered . You need to consult with an immigration lawyer, who will advise you after reviewing the specifics of your husband's history. You will need to bring all police records and court dispositions. The immigration attorney will also need to have a detailed immigration history for your husband.

    Answered . You can, but this sounds like domestic violence, and he could be placed in removal proceedings when you file for him. Most likely you will need to fight a waiver for this with the USCIS. You should immediately hire an immigration attorney to file these things for you.
