Generally, the criminal conviction history of a U.S. citizen will be irrelevant regarding eligibility to sponsor a foreign national spouse to adjust status to become a Lawful Permanent Resident (to get a "Green Card"). Some instances where the criminal record of the U.S. Citizen spouse can interfere with with eligibilty include: the U.S. Citizen (USC) spouse is in jail; the USC spouse is at risk of going to jail; the USC spouse is unable to provide financial support (this issue may be addressed through a joint sponsor); etc.
