He was not deported for the crimes, just for overstaying his B2 visa. It was a voluntary deportation; when his ex-wife withdrew her sponsorship for him. The crimes are: felony DWI, felony evading arrest, two misdemeanor DWI's and a few traffic misdemeanors. Do we need an I-601 waiver to prove rehabilitation for his past crimes, even though they had no impact in his deportation? ALSO, would he have a higher chance of his waiver being approved if we got married and I showed extreme hardship as his wife instead of as his fiance? Please help! I know I need an attorney for this complicated case, but I've been quoted $7500 (too much for me!) and I just wanted clarification of these issues before choosing an attorney! Thank you so much!
He must disclose his crimes, and they might require a waiver as well. There's no way of telling without reviewing his criminal records, though.
Waivers are very complicated, and you should definitely hire an attorney. Attorneys charge differently, and you should consult with different ones before picking one to work with. You can go to ailalawyer.com to look for attorneys in your area.
Do not file anything prior to retaining an attorney. The case could get a whole lot more expensive if an attorney is hired later on to fix mistakes that could have been avoided from the beginning. Good luck!
