    Answered . Get certified copies of all the dispositions of arrest for your husband. You should have an immigraiton attorney determine if some of the convictions, if any, require a waiver.

    Answered . There are serious consequences to criminal behavior, including deportation. In the same way your husband would hire a professional to pull out his teeth, he might want to consider hiring a professional to help him with this immigration matter.
