Can a legal immigrant be deported for domestic violence (and other offenses) without a criminal conviction?

Mr. Berman is correct. You have never been charged let alone convicted. Good luck and the answer is NO. Hope this helps?
Normally, DHS will not proceed with initiating removal proceedings unless a resident has a conviction that renders the resident removable.
If your wife adjusted status or obtained the immigrant visa based on your filing of the FORM I -130 on her behalf , you may be liable for federal benefits that she receives . This an obligation imposed by the Affidavit of Support that may have filed on her behalf. This obligation will endure until she becomes a U.S.citizen or she is no longer a resident of the U.S.
No, a person cannot be deported for purportedly committing a crime if they are never charged or convicted of the crime.
