Whether or not your criminal record will pose problems for your adjustment really depends on the specific offense and whether you were convicted. Be prepared to answer pointed questions from the interviewing officer regarding your arrest. It is crucial you consult directly with a criminal immigration attorney before your interview to determine the immigration consequences of your criminal record. An attorney could also help prepare you for the interview and attend it with you. Best wishes.
