She got 3 years of probation. She has 3 years old child USC, her husband is LPR, but he is going to apply for citizenship very soon. She is a legal permanent resident herself, entered the country in 2001 and got her permanent status in 2006. Her husband has severe depression, he is under psychiatric care and cannot take care of himself and their child without her. She has very good recommendations from everywhere. If there are any chances she would not be deported? This is about immigration and deportation.
There is not enough information here. Did she plead guilty to the charge? Where did it happen? Was it a federal case? Is she in Immigration proceedings? Was her husband charged with anything? Did she have a criminal attorney? They should consult with an Immigration attorney ASAP.
I believe what you are wondering is whether the wife might obtain a hardship waiver if her husband obtains U.S. citizenship. It would be the hardships of the U.S. citizen that might save the wife from being removed from the U.S. Based on what you wrote this is a possibility, but you will likely need to have a paid consultation with an attorney to help sort out an immigration plan.
