Hello. Please have an experienced immigration attorney examine the arrest. Not all offenses make one ineligible for adjustment of status but some do. The attorney will need to advise the criminal defense attorney how to handle. We have both immigration and criminal defense. Regards

If your spouse was out of status, he might be placed in ICE detention and issued a notice to appear. You can check if he has an ICE hold. Best to call an immigration attorney who can evaluate his case and guide your through the necessary steps.

You should consult with an immigration attorney with a background in criminal law. Although your husband is a US Citizen, depending on what he was arrested for and without more information, it's hard to be able to say "what will happen now".

It is not clear from your question: Is your spouse a US Citizen, or Permanent Resident? And, what was he arrested for? You definitely need to consult with an experienced immigration attorney about the situation.
