    Answered . Whether this will be a problem depends on how many convictions he has, for what crimes, and the sentences that were imposed.

    Answered . It depends on what the crimes are and whether it is the beneficairy or Petition that has the record. This is only one of many important considerations in a Marriage based Green Card case.

    Answered . Most crimes are not an issue if it is on the US citizens record. I suggest you speak with an immigration attorney for more information. My firm is experienced in criminal immigration law and spousal based applications.
