    Lawyers agree

    Answered . More information is needed in order to determine whether anything can be done for your husband, however any criminal history will be discovered by USCIS and it is a requirement to provide those documents with your applications. I would strongly recommend seeking a consultation with my office or one of the other qualified attorneys on AVVO. Good luck!

    Answered . If he applies for something with immigration, they will run a background check using his fingerprints, so he should not try to cover that up -- it will only cause him even more problems down the road. Talk to an immigration lawyer who can review the details of his crime and his immigration history to give you a better idea of your options.

    Answered . Agree with prior to attorneys. You and your husband need an attorney's assistance with anything you do from here. Every little detail with an immigration case can matter and can make a big difference. The only way you will get the advice you need and can rely on (not just what you want to hear) is by consulting with an attorney. You will not get the advice/information you need on here because your husband's case is already complex with the little information you offered. Please go consult with 2-3 immigration attorneys and get some good advice before you take any actions that might jeopardize your family.
