He came to the U.S with his visa laser. We have a one year old daughter she was born in New Mexico. He had probation for a year and did everything he was suppose to. He was under age when this happened and once he turned 18 he recived a letter saying that his criminal file would be erased. He ows the lawyer 1,000 dollars still. He recently crashed and had to pay 2,800 for this but havent gotten around to it. I was wondering if their is still a posibility of him being able of getting papers if we get married in Mexico. What do you recommend me to do?

There are too many issues involved in your case to give you a complete answer here. If your boyfriend is currently in Mexico, there are two ways to bring him in legally: fiancé visa, or as a spouse (you obviously will need to get married first). However, there might be different grounds of inadmissibility that need to be addressed here, such as criminal record and possibly unlawful presence. Talk to a lawyer, preferably - several lawyers, before you take any action.
I think you and your boyfriend need to discuss this with counsel. The criminal issue is likely benign as it was a juvenile action. Owing money is not generally a bar to getting status. And based on your facts it appears he was admitted to the U.S. meaning he can get status much more easily than most. You'll want to ensure all these factors are accurate and then identify a course of action accordingly.
