A successfully completed misdemeanor DUI is not a preventive factor to your case. You may request your official court disposition of your court case at the court's clerk of the jurisdiction where you case was heard.
Naturally, any federal submissions you prepare must be carefully reviewed by a licensed immigration attorney, in my opinion.
One DUI will not prevent you from obtaining lawful permanent residence. I am hopoing that you disclosed the DUI during your Asylum interview. If not than that is an issue that needs to be addressed. Any time one has a criminal record its best to have it reviewed by an attorney before filing, just to be sure it won't cause any problems, or to be prepared if it does.

You need complete certified documents from the County of your DUI. You'll need FBI Criminal Background check. Also you may need information about entry and reentry into the United States.
A DUI conviction is not end all be all but it will depend on the facts of the conviction, find an experienced immigration attorney.
